Current Alerts (Updated 5/6/2020)

  • 5/6/2020 – Temperature swings will occur as we are in a transitional period from Winter heating to Summer cooling.

The building will be cooler than typical during the day until outdoor temperatures begin to breach 80-degrees.
  • 3/24/2020 – In an effort to enhance safety, the university will operate under a “card access only” model.  During this time, entry to the Civic Square Building will require use of your RU ID card.  All Rutgers community members should be sure to have their IDs with them whenever they are on campus.
