We love writing articles to help Rutgers students find off campus housing. In this blog series, we are going to cover and detail every single student housing street in New Brunswick that is predominately filled by Rutgers students living off campus.
This week’s topic is Mine Street.
Mine St is also in great location with respect to some awesome food places, as it’s right around the corner from Easton Ave hotspots. First and foremost, a Rutgers University favorite: Playa Bowls. If you’re in the mood for some acai, pitaya, or even fruity smoothies, this place is for you. Another awesome food option right on the corner of Mine and Easton is King of Gyro. I like to call it the home of the most delicious lamb platter at Rutgers (sorry Halal Guys). Last but not least we have Fritz. Basically, Fritz is the place at Rutgers that you go to get quinoa, salad, and healthier option foods/snacks. I highly recommend their homemade desserts as well. If you live on Mine Street I’m sure you can be found at any one of these places at least twice a week.
I’m sure if you have heard of Rutgers University you have heard of Olde Queens Tavern. This is the most popular bar on College Ave, located right on the corner of Mine St and Easton Ave. If you are 21 and ready to enjoy all that off campus Rutgers has to offer, I would say to definitely take a walk over to Queens. The line is typically wrapped all the way down the street, but if you live on Mine you will get a head start every night and be the first to the door!
Keep in mind that New Brunswick is a city and parking in a city is tough. However, with Mine St being a block from campus, parking is incredibly tough to find on the street if you live here. The good news is that several homes do have driveways and frankly you’re so close to campus a car really isn’t necessary.
