Take the Housing Master Plan Survey—All Students
The Division of Institutional Planning and Operations has retained a consultant to develop a Housing Master Plan for Rutgers University–Camden and to update the 2006 Housing Master Plan for Rutgers University–New Brunswick. Students are invited to participate in the Housing Master Plan survey, which is an essential component of the outreach and data collection effort. Feedback will help the consultant team understand existing conditions and will ultimately inform the recommendations of each plan. The survey takes approximately 10-15 minutes to complete and will be open until October 20. All responses will be anonymous. Participants who complete the survey are entered into a drawing to win an iPad from kite + key, The Rutgers Tech Store. Take the survey here.
