  • + amount for off-campus (with family) room, board and other expenses * # of students living off-campus with family
  • + amount for off-campus (not with family) room, board and other expenses * # of students living off-campus not with family)

What Students Are Saying

3.58 Average Rating
I love this campus because its a small school and very convenient to travel to especially for commuters. I get to school everyday using the riverline by paying just $1.50 each way. There is so much opportunities, job fairs, activities at this campus that you can never be bored.

Small campus with all the benefits of affiliation with a big school. The professors, counselors and programs for the opportunity of service to others is great. As a freshman coming in in September, I was made to feel welcomed as part of a community, a family.
Alexander from Trenton, NJ
In the 3 years that I have been at this campus, anyone can come to love everything about it. The classes are the perfect size and all of the staff/students are very close-knit. I'm going to be very sad upon graduation because my time here has been the greatest time spent.

Rutgers Camden is a great environment that encourages learning. It is a small community that pays attention to all its students whether academically or socially.
