The website believes Rowan University, in Glassboro, is the ugliest campus in the entire state, placing it No. 10 of the entire country. The New Jersey Institute of Technology (NJIT) in Newark was 14th.
Rutgers University’s New Brunswick campus ranked 26th. The campus is criticized for its reliance on bus service, which it says “leaves little room for a proper college experience.”
The website praises Rutgers’ older buildings as “university gems,” but calls the newer structures “eyesores” by comparison.
Once again criticizing a New Jersey college for not providing a “traditional college-campus feel,” Complex describes NJIT’s campus as a “dizzying variety of building styles” that form a “haphazard, ugly campus.”
Complex saved its most scathing review of a New Jersey campus for Rowan University, calling it a “campus in need of a lot of love,” with water-stained buildings falling apart surrounded by “ill-placed technical equipment and dumpsters.”
Complex named Ava Maria University, in Ava Maria Florida, as the ugliest college campus in the country. It’s buildings form a horseshoe around a church.
