Rutgers Professional Golf Turf Management School:
Housing Options

Join Our Mailing List Email Us Button


Housing is not included in the tuition for either of our turf management certificate programs.
Rutgers is not responsible for your housing arrangements. You must make your own arrangements at your own additional cost. However, we are happy to help!

We have contacted local hotels, short term housing facilities and local homeowners to help identify housing options and negotiate for discounted rates. Prices are subject to change, so please contact the facility directly for current prices. When making your reservations, be sure to identify yourself as a student in The Rutgers Professional Golf Turf Management School. Remember that you are free to book your stay wherever you choose. There are countless options within a short distance to campus.

Please note: Rutgers University does not own, supervise, approve, endorse, or evaluate off-campus housing facilities. All arrangements are strictly between the landlords and the student/tenant.

As always, if you have any questions or need more information, feel free to contact us!

Cut Expenses by Splitting Housing Costs with a Roommate
To cut expenses, consider shared housing. If you are looking for shared housing, mention that you are interested in roommates when contacting these hotels, short-term housing facilities and local homeowners. Some will maintain and share lists of other turf students looking for roommates so that you can more easily make connections and secure your desired housing arrangements.
