To amplify your Douglass housing experience, you may choose a living-learning community. These communities are designed to provide academic, professional, and residential experiences that will help you make the most of your time on Douglass.
When it comes to living-learning communities, new Douglass STEM students have many options from which they can choose. Living-learning communities in engineering, computer science, medicine, and other STEM fields are available to students living on campus. These programs provide opportunities for experiential learning, community service, mentorship, and more. Depending on the program, students involved in STEM living-learning communities may be housed on the Busch or Douglass campuses.

The Mary I. Bunting Program was established in 1958 by Mary I. Bunting, the Dean of Douglass at that time, to recognize the needs of women who wish to complete college, either part-time or full-time, later in their lives and careers. To this end, the Bunting Program recognizes the time constraints and other needs of non-traditional students. The program provides individualized mentoring on top of the advising students receive through their Rutgers undergraduate schools.
