Welcome to the Department of Student Centers and Activities!

We are integral part of your Rutgers experience and provide you with opportunities, programs and services for campus involvement. With us, you will find transformative co-curricular experiences, spaces to learn, study and spend time, and an opportunity to create your community. We are proud to serve as your one-stop for engagement to make friends, build relationships, connect with fellow students, create your network, and find your community at Rutgers.

Here are ways to create your community:

Visit our Student Centers

Student Centers and Activities is home to six student centers across five campuses. Just as each campus has its own identity, each center also reflects the history and culture of each smaller campus. No matter what kind of environment you are looking for, one is sure to become your home on campus. All of our centers have one thing in common: they are focused on providing friendly, welcoming, inclusive environments, helpful services and resources, and rich, diverse programs. The centers are the places to attend programs, host a meeting, meet friends, have a meal, study or relax. We also have our own game room and soon-to-open Esports Center. Learn more about each center and find center hours.

Attend (or help plan!) a signature campus event

Campus Programs provides opportunities to find community and make memories outside of the classroom at events appealing to a diverse student body on all five campuses, including Convocation and Carnivalé, the Involvement Fair, Geek Week, Senior Days and more. A number of events for students are also organized by the University’s student-led programming board, RUPA. Rutgers University Programming Association (RUPA) is the university-wide student programming council that serves the entire Rutgers community. Examples include: concerts and comedy shows with internationally known artists, the Annual Homecoming Charity Bed Races, entertaining lectures and performances, and art projects. Attend an event or learn how to become part of RUPA.
