University Offices and Services

Rutgers is open. Some services and facilities may be operating on limited schedules. For more information, visit your respective chancellor’s website:

Access to University Facilities

The “card only access” model put in place in March 2020 will be removed for Newark and New Brunswick facilities effective July 6, 2021. Building coordinators are welcome to resume requesting door schedules for their respective areas. Camden facilities will remain on the card only access model at this time requiring the use of an RU ID card to obtain access to buildings.

Given that face coverings will be commonplace, faculty, staff, and students must have their Rutgers ID cards on their person at all times and are strongly encouraged to display their ID while on campus and/or in Rutgers buildings. If a new or replacement RU ID card is required, please visit the Identity and Access Management website.

Resources for Working Virtually and Maintaining Wellness

The COVID-19 Telecommuting and Wellness website provides guidelines and resources to help employees effectively manage working remotely and the stress that may come along with it. These resources focus on supporting the physical and mental well-being of our employees as they continue to adjust to workplace and life changes as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic.

Rutgers University Family Support Line

The new confidential staff, faculty, and family support line: Rutgers4U (1-855-652-6819) offers emotional and therapeutic support during and following the COVID-19 pandemic.

Travel Restrictions

For the health and safety of students, faculty, and staff, Rutgers continues its broad restriction on both foreign and domestic travel for University purposes, while allowing limited travel that is explicitly approved as an exception via a waiver process. The restriction includes domestic travel for University purposes outside of the New Jersey, Pennsylvania, Delaware, New York, and Connecticut region. Refer to the Travel Guidance page available from the Office of the Executive Vice President for Academic Affairs for more details.

Travel and Quarantine Advisories

Rutgers is now aligned with the quarantine and travel recommendations put forth by the New Jersey Department of Health.

On April 5, 2021, the State of New Jersey relaxed domestic travel-related quarantine requirements for individuals who are fully vaccinated. Though ALL non-essential interstate travel continues to be discouraged, vaccinated individuals (or those who have recovered from COVID-19 within the last three months) no longer need to quarantine or be tested for COVID-19 before or after domestic travel.

Non-vaccinated travelers and residents returning from any U.S. state or territory beyond the immediate region (New York, Connecticut, Pennsylvania, and Delaware) are still expected to self-quarantine at their home or temporary lodging. International travelers should review the CDC’s COVID-19 travel recommendations by destination.

Please check New Jersey Department of Health guidelines for the most up-to-date information and guidance.
