The Office of Community Affairs serves as a link between Rutgers and the community at large. It helps local residents and organizations connect to the university's many resources by matching community needs with university expertise and service.

Rutgers in the Community

On campus and off, Rutgers is working to build a stronger relationship with New Brunswick, Piscataway, and the surrounding community. Along the way, we hope to become a better partner for our neighbors. A first step is making sure that everyone—from residents to students, faculty, and staff—has access to Rutgers’ community offerings.

Visit our directory of Rutgers programs for the community to learn about programs and services that bring Rutgers’ resources into the community. Residents can connect with university offerings, from swim lessons for kids to expert advice for small business owners. Read more about community engagement at Rutgers.
