  • + 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
The moment I stepped onto the campus at Rutgers-Camden, I was at home; a huge sigh of happiness escaped me as I walked through the quad. In my two years matriculating there, I have met top-notch professors who have done their utmost to help me learn everything I need to know to become a part of this giant world around us. The school is being threatened by government intervention, but all of us have rallied together and I know that whatever happens in the future that every one of us will continue to bleed Scarlet til the day we die.

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.
