About New Jersey City University

New Jersey City University (NJCU) provides students the best of many worlds: small classes led by world-class faculty mentors, a broad array of high-quality undergraduate and graduate degree programs, and the lowest tuition offered by a four-year public university in the state of New Jersey—all on a thriving campus in bustling, cosmopolitan Jersey City.

NJCU is a vibrant place to live and learn, with students and faculty from around the world; welcoming, comfortable residence halls; a robust Greek system; a wide variety of student organizations and athletics programs that create a vibrant campus outside of academics; and support services for veterans, international students and others with unique needs. Beyond campus, students from NJCU have opportunities to explore the world and gain invaluable, hands-on experience through study abroad and internships in the most in-demand fields.

Most importantly, our school of business and colleges of arts and sciences, education, and professional studies provide our students with a world-class, interdisciplinary education—challenging them to grow as critical thinkers, to expand their knowledge and develop skills that will serve them well beyond their time at NJCU. Gothic Knights graduate ready to lead, ready to succeed, and ready to rise to the top of their respective fields.
