Graduate Student Housing
RBHS has opened its first housing facility, located at its Newark campus. The building not only provides housing for Rutgers students, but also expands current parking capacity and will provide retail space for the use and benefit of the entire Rutgers community.
The building contains 234 residential apartment units in a 14 story structure (9 stories of housing on top of a 5 story addition to the current parking deck). Housing a total of 465 students, it offers a mix of unit types including: 46 studio apartments; 34 one-bedroom apartments; 77 two-bedroom apartments; and 77 three-bedroom apartments. Each unit is fully furnished with efficient kitchens, accessible bathrooms, and convenient cable/phone/internet ports.
Residents will have secured and direct access from the parking deck to the lobby of the residential facility. To ensure security, the parking area will be equipped with security cameras, panic buttons, telephones, and enhanced lighting.
The building will, in the near future, also provide a campus fitness center and space for several retail establishments. Of the project's total square footage of 450,040, 3% (13,501 square feet) is allocated for retail, 59% (265,524 square feet) is allocated for residential and 38% (171,015 square feet) is allocated for parking.
The project was completed in August 2006. Rental rates for the apartments are available from the University Housing authority.
