About Rider University

As a learner-centered University dedicated to the education of the whole student, Rider provides students the intellectual resources and breadth of student life opportunities of a comprehensive university with the personal attention and close student-faculty interactions of a liberal arts college.

Through a commitment to high quality teaching, scholarship and experiential opportunities, faculty on both campuses provide undergraduate and graduate students rigorous and relevant programs of study to expand their intellectual, cultural and personal horizons and develop their leadership skills. Our highly regarded programs in the arts, social sciences, sciences, music, business and education challenge students to become active learners who can acquire, interpret, communicate and apply knowledge within and across disciplines to foster the integrative thinking required in a complex and rapidly changing world.

Rider attracts highly qualified faculty, staff and administrators with diverse backgrounds who create an environment which inspires intellectual and social engagement, stimulates innovation and service and encourages personal and professional development. As key members of our University community, it is their commitment to our values, vision and mission that will ensure Rider’s success.

The University’s institutional identity will continue to reflect the strengths of its people, history, location and shared values, among which are a commitment to diversity, social and ethical responsibility and community.

Rider is unique—the time you spend here is unlike any other time in your life. It gleams with excitement and pulses with energy. It’s about becoming the person you dreamed you could be. It’s about gathering skills that will serve you long after you leave. It’s your life waiting to be lived.

Help people in the community with one of our many service clubs. Deejay on the radio for WRRC. Run for a office or position within the student government. Become a member of a fraternity or sorority. Choreograph and produce your own dance performance. Entertain with a comedy troupe. Lead your tennis team to victory. Play your heart out in flag football. Start your own organization. Think big!

The 353-acre Lawrenceville campus is in a suburban area three miles north of Trenton and five miles south of Princeton. The modern facilities, designed to meet the academic, social, and recreational needs of the Rider community, are clustered and within easy walking distance of one another. Ample parking is available.
