Jersey City

  • College Life in Jersey City

    Jersey City, NJ, is located just across the Hudson River from Manhattan on a peninsula between the Hudson and Hackensack rivers. A close-knit community of diverse neighborhoods, Jersey City is a unique combination of the bustling industrial Northeast and pleasant, livable urban green spaces, and college life in Jersey City benefits from the many connections between NJCU and those communities.

    The NJCU Campus

    The NJCU campus is centralized, comprising a main core of University facilities and plenty of communal areas that give a real sense of a collegiate campus environment. There is plenty of parking for both students and visitors, along with shuttle bus service to and from campus locations.

    To learn more about the city's history, visit the Jersey City: Past and Present website, a digital project of New Jersey City University (NJCU).  This site was conceived as an effective way to reach out to the surrounding community through the Internet by providing both archival and contemporary images accompanied by original informative essays that document Jersey City's rich history.
