The Rutgers sign in the yard reads "160-162 / Women's Leadership and Scholarship Complex / Ruth Dill Johnson Crockett Building." IRW is located on the second floor of the Center for Women's Programs, the building closest to the road. The Ruth Dill Johnson Crockett Building (162 Ryders Lane), where we often hold our events, is located farther away from the road. Please click on the map to see our exact coordinates. We are on two campus bus routes: the EE and the F. The nearest campus bus stop is Henderson Apartments.

Directions by Train from New York City
From Penn Station take a New Jersey Transit train via the Northeast Corridor to New Brunswick. Take a taxi from the train station or the EE Rutgers bus (http://parktran.rutgers.edu/campusbuses.shtml) to our location. The nearest EE bus stop to the train station is on Somerset Street close to the intersection with George Street. All Rutgers buses are free; everyone can ride them and there is no need to show a Rutgers ID.

Directions by Bus from New York City
From the Port Authority Bus Terminal take the Suburban Transit bus (Line 100), the Princeton/East Brunswick/New Brunswick line (http://www.suburbantransit.com), to downtown New Brunswick. Take a taxi or EE bus to our office (see above).
