The Mathematics Colloquium at Rutgers-Newark 


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. and CS Department:

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, 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: 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. They are pretty frequent and you may find schedule here.

Walk from Newark Penn station: It will take you 15 minutes to walk (, which is recommended) to the department on101 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.

Walk from Newark Broad Street Station:  It will take you 8 minutes to walk to the department along University Av.

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.
