The Rutgers University Inn and Conference Center gives you the quiet charm of a country retreat-and the amenities of a full service conference center. The Rutgers Inn & Conference Center had its beginnings in 1965, when Rutgers acquired the 21-acre Sydney B. Carpender estate on Clifton Avenue at the edge of the Douglass Campus. Formerly known as Lindenwood, the beautifully landscaped property included the stately Carpender House, a 20-room manor house built in 1911 in the Tudor revival style popular during that period.
In 1969, Rutgers constructed a modern addition, which originally included 36 guest rooms, a spacious lobby, lounge, dining room, large conference room, kitchen and elevator.
The Carpender House has a fireplace in almost every room, and now contains six conference rooms, two of which are located on the second floor (the former living room and dining room) along with a sun porch and large front hall. Bedrooms on the third floor have been converted into small conference rooms, ideal for breakout sessions, and administrative offices.
With much sadness, but with the safety and well-being of our guests, staff, community and country in mind, The Rutgers University Inn and Conference Center is closed for business until September 1. Dates and restrictions are subject to revision in response to changing events. Group events at Rutgers are prohibited during this time. // Thank you for your understanding. ** Please stay safe.
