Are you a Rutgers University – New Brunswick student who is looking for an opportunity to engage with peers in a fun way? We have something AMAZING for you!

Late Knight is a consistent late-night programming initiative out of Campus Programs, within the Department of Student Centers and Activities. We aim to provide fun, safe, and engaging opportunities for students on Fridays in one of our Student Centers. Events are completely FREE to our Rutgers – New Brunswick students and occur twice a month from 9:00 pm – 12:00 am while classes are in session.

In 2019-2020, we hosted 21 Late Knight events which over 4,835 students attended. Events included movie nights, comedy shows, trivia, bingo, student center “takeovers” with novelties and inflatables, theme nights, open mics, and so much more.

Upcoming Events

Late Knight Trivia

Late Knight: Trivia with RU Sure

September 23 | 9pm
Douglass Student Center

Head to Late Knight on 9/23 for Lightning Fast Trivia with cash prizes. Check in starts @ 9pm & trivia @ 9:30pm. Tonight’s food bar is appetizers from King Pita. Visit RU SURE’s table at the event for giveaways and thank them for being tonight’s co-sponsor! RU SURE is a student-lead dangerous drinking prevention campaign aimed to educate our peers about the misperceptions they might have about the drinking culture here. Did you know that 2 out of 3 Rutgers students stop at 3 drinks or fewer, and 1 in 5 don’t drink at all?
