Nicknamed "100 Rock" by students, the spectacular new building at 100 Rockafeller Road housing Rutgers Business School opened in 2013. Serving as the gateway to the Livingston Campus, 100 Rock is near a new first-run movie theater, a new dining commons, new residence halls for graduate students, and new student center. The campus is home to one of the nation’s largest campus solar arrays as well as the Louis Brown Athletic Center (the “RAC”), where Rutgers cheers its basketball teams.
Classrooms contain a variety of technology, including Ultra Short Throw projectors, touch screens and glass marker boards. The building is also equipped with 91 WiFi access points, ensuring that students and faculty will be able to connect to the Internet from wireless devices from a variety of locations.
