The ten-story Camden Tower features forty-two furnished and carpeted suites, each having three bedrooms.  All beds are sized twin extra long. The guests in each suite share a living room, vanity area and bathroom. Each suite has controls for heat and air conditioning, high-speed wireless internet, and digital satellite television access in all bedrooms and the living room.  Ample gathering space exists on each floor of the building where guests can meet to socialize, study in groups, or find a quiet place alone. Additionally, there is a large lounge space on the first floor ideal for group meetings, a cardio fitness room on the first floor that is open 24 hours per day, a pool table on the fifth floor, a weight lifting room on the sixth floor, and a laundry room on the first floor that is included in the room rate.  The Tower building has one entrance that is monitored by Rutgers security 24 hours per day.

Transportation

AIRPORT – Camden is reached by air most easily via the Philadelphia International Airport (PHL)-https://www.phl.org/  though it is also possible to fly into New York City or Newark, NJ.

AMTRAK – Philadelphia is a main stop on the Northeast Corridor of AMTRAK  https://www.amtrak.com/home  and also accessible via New Jersey Transit www.njtransit.com.  Camden can be reached via the River Line from Trenton, and the NJT Northeast Corridor from New York City (via Philly).

SEPTA – Public transportation in Philadelphia is operated by SEPTA  www.septa.org.   There are regular trains from the airport to Center City, a subway (the blue Market-Frankfort Line) that runs across town, as well as numerous buses – in case you want to plan some tourist activities. Unfortunately, the SEPTA and PATCO systems are not interlinked, so you need to buy separate tickets for them. It is easy, however to move from one train to the other at 8th & Market Streets.  For a map click here.

PATCO – Once you are in Philadelphia, use PATCO to get to Camden. www.ridepatco.org.  Campus is located at the first stop on the New Jersey side of the river, City Hall. From there, it’s just two blocks to campus. Below:  PATCO Rail Map

RIVER LINE – The light rail connects Camden to Trenton and the Trenton Transit Station (which connects to the NE Corridor). For map click here.

SHUTTLE BUS – We will provide shuttle buses to campus from the New Jersey hotels. We encourage you to book your accommodations early, as there are many events, conferences, and tourist activities in Philly during the summer months.

INDEGO – For anyone staying in Philly, and up for adventure, we recommend the Philly Bike Share system, INDEGO.  https://www.rideindego.com/.   It’s easy to sign up, grab a bike and enjoy the town and trails along Philly’s “other” river,  the Schuylkill and the fabulous Fairmount Park.
