Rutgers is known as the birthplace of college football and SHI Stadium is a short, free shuttle ride away from City Center.

The Rutgers Athletic Center, or "The RAC" as it is affectionately called, is home to the men’s and women’s basketball programs, as well as hosting wrestling, gymnastics, and various events. Opened in 1977, the RAC is one of the top arenas in the nation to watch college basketball. This 8,000 seat arena has been dubbed, “louder than a 757 from nearby Newark” making it one of the toughest college basketball arenas in the country for opponents. For more information about attending events at the RAC, visit this link at Rutgers Athletics. Can't make it to the game?
