Newark Colleges and Universities

Located just five miles outside Manhattan, Newark has evolved into an economic and cultural center in its own right. New Jersey's "Gateway City" owes some of its prosperity to its role as a transportation and shipping hub for New York City. But the city has also developed a lively arts and cultural scene, anchored by the New Jersey Performing Arts Center. Students of Newark colleges and universities can appreciate the city's revitalization efforts, which have established a new baseball stadium and energized downtown nightlife.

Newark, New Jersey is home to several major colleges and universities located in the University Heights district. Public research universities include The New Jersey Institute of Technology and Rutgers University-Newark. Newark is also home to several professional colleges and universities, including the University of Medicine and Dentistry and the Seton Hall University School of Law.
