How to get to Splash

Getting to NJIT Campus

Public Transportation

Public transit is easy and convenient to use to get to NJIT. Students living outside of Newark can take the PATH or the NJ Transit system to Newark Penn Station.

To get to the NJIT campus from Newark Penn station, you can either take the Light Rail or the NJ Transit buses. We recommend taking the light rail, which is much easier to use and faster (get Underground Fare tickets, $0.75). Make sure you stamp your light rail ticket!

For the Light Rail: We will have lots of signs around and volunteers helping people coming from the light rail. If you are coming from Penn Station (destination Grove St), or coming from Grove St, you need to get off at the Warren St/NJIT station; then walk upstairs and take the Lock St exit, and look up at the large athletic center. This is the Wellness and Event Center where check-in is located.
