Joining Douglass is Easy

We invite any Rutgers University–New Brunswick women student or transfer student to join Douglass Residential College. You can do so any time between your admittance to the university and the middle of your junior year at Rutgers. The process is just slightly different if you’re just starting or if you’re already a Rutgers student.

What Joining Douglass Means

As part of Douglass, you gain a lively and supportive community, great leadership programs, and additional opportunities for scholarships to support your Rutgers education. What’s required of you:

  • Live on the Douglass campus for at least one year or in a Douglass living learning community on another Rutgers campus (Except commuters and current Honors College students)
  • Take the Douglass Mission Course. If you are a declared major or minor in Women's and Gender Studies, we may be able to waive the requirement.


We encourage you to claim your Douglass education and embrace the opportunities it offers -- from BOLD Center career and personal development options, to global experiences and artists in residence.
