Health & Safety: There are occasional issues where someone on campus gets mugged or robbed however they are always reported and the security on campus always tries to work on it their best to be more on the lookout.

3 College Sophomore

Health & Safety: You feel generally safe at Rutgers, night time is a bit "sketchy" but I imagine any college campus would be past 9pm.
