The Mathematics Colloquium at Rutgers-Newark 

2011-2012


The Colloquium of the Mathematics Department of Rutgers-Newark takes places on every second or third Wednesday, from 4pm-5pm, in 204 Smith Hall, 101 Warren St., Rutgers-Newark. All are welcome.

On alternate Wednesdays, the student colloquium features talks which are aimed in particular to be accessible to graduate students. Again, all are welcome.

Directions to Math. Department:
 

By train: Take NJ Transit to Newark Penn Station (you can look at www.njtransit.com ). You can take a short cab ride to the department (101 Warren St.), or you can take the Newark Light Rail/City Subway (entrance by McDonald's in Newark Penn station) to Washington Street (take the train toward the Grove St stop).  For the Light Rail, you should buy a ticket and validate it before you get on the train (I think it's 65 cents). From the Washington St. city Subway station, there's a campus map. The city subway comes out on Raymond Blvd. between University Av. and Washington St. The math dept at Rutgers Newark is in Smith Hall, 101 Warren St.  My office is 314.

By car: Here is the direction to the campus. For parking, you will want to go to the Bradley lot.  To get there, follow the online directions to Parking Deck 1, which will be on your left off University Av. Then take the next right onto Warren St.  The Bradley lot will be the first lot on your left (after the sports field).  Smith Hall will be across Warren St, and again there's a campus map.
