Newark and the NY Region

NJIT is located in one of the nation's most exciting cultural and business regions. The Greater New York/New Jersey region offers a rich array of cultural and recreational offerings, and New York City, with its vast resources for education, cultural enrichment, and entertainment is just 20 minutes from the campus.

Situated in the heart of Newark, the university shares the city's vibrant and multicultural University Heights district with the campuses of Rutgers University - Newark, the Rutgers Center for Law and Justice, the University of Medicine and Dentistry of New Jersey, Essex County College, and the developing University Heights Science Park. University Heights and the adjacent downtown section comprise the hub of Newark's ongoing economic and cultural renaissance.
