The Newark Health Science Campus of Rutgers SGS is located in the University Heights area of Newark, NJ.

On our campus, you will find we share space with or are connected to Rutgers New Jersey Medical School, Rutgers School of Dental Medicine, University Hospital, and the Rutgers Cancer Center of New Jersey. Our location gives us proximity to the Branch Brook Park (home of the annual cherry blossom festival), the Newark Museum (the largest museum in NJ), Cathedral Basilica (a beautiful Gothic Revival architecture), as well as Newark Downtown (where you can get everything from contemporary to traditional food and art destinations to performance centers). The Newark Penn Station located in Newark downtown will connect you with many destinations including New York City.
