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.
