The Physical Environment

Leveraging state funding from the 2012 Building Our Future Bond Act, the first New Jersey higher education construction bond act since 1988, Rutgers has constructed major new or expanded academic facilities across the University. The past seven years mark the most active period of campus construction since the 1960s—and, guided by a new physical master plan, more growth is on the way.

Exciting Campus Visions

A physical master plan approved by the Board of Governors in 2015 provides a detailed vision for the future of Rutgers University–New Brunswick, Rutgers University–Newark, Rutgers University–Camden, and Rutgers Biomedical and Health Sciences.

Transformational Growth

Since 2012, the University has begun or completed more than $2.5 billion in building projects for academics, research, patient care, and student and community life.
