Minorities or those of alternative lifestyles are very welcomed at NJIT. There is a large Muslim demographic, as well as church groups and meditation rooms. There are student organizations representing many different ethnicities, such as African, Jamaican, and Asian students.
In terms of nonracial minorities, the LGBT community is openly accepted and represented through the school's LGBT club, Spectrum. They also host a variety of events, including an annual live performance of "The Rocky Horror Picture Show"—all of which have significant attendance. There is rarely, if ever, any feeling of animosity from a student toward any particular group. Overall, the NJIT atmosphere is very welcoming.
