Directions to the Department of Mathematics and Computer Sciences:

The Department of Mathematics & Computer Science at Rutgers University-Newark is in Smith Hall, which is located at 101 Warren Street. My office is 314.

By train: Take NJ Transit to Newark, there are two stops in Newark: Newark Penn Station and Newark Broad Street Station (you can look at the NJ Transit website.), either one will be fine although Newark Broad Street Station is closer to the campus (see infomation below)

From New York If you are coming from New York Penn Station through NJ transit, then it is about 17 minutes ride to either of the two stations. There are four lines to choose from: Montclair-Booton Line and Morristown Line stop at Newark Broad Street Station; Northeast Corridor Line and North Jersey Coast Line stop at Newark Penn Station. Trains are  frequent and you may find schedule here.

Walk from Newark Penn station: It will take you approximately 15 minutes  to walk (which is recommended) to the department at 101 Warren Street., or you can take the Newark Light Rail/City Subway (the entrance is next to McDonald's in Newark Penn station)Grove Street/Branch Brook Park line to Washington Street ( the second stop).  For the Light Rail, you should buy a ticket and validate it before you get on the train ( the only option is  75 cents). As you exit the train, take the left (north) exit, which will lead closer to University Avenue on Raymond Boulevard. Turn right onto University Avenue, walk one block and turn left onto Warren Street at the traffic light. Smith Hall will be on the right. and my office is 314.

Walk from Newark Broad Street Station:  It will take you 8 minutes to walk to the department along University Avenue. Turn right at Warren Street. Smith Hall will be on the right.

By car: Here are the directions to the campus. For parking, you can only access Parking Deck 3 located at 180 Washington Street. The closest traffic light will be the intersection of Washington Street and Raymond Boulevard.
