The Rutgers University-Newark Pharmacy, located on premises of the Health Center at Blumenthal Hall and operated by full-time and part-time licensed pharmacists, is open year round, to serve students, staff and faculty.

Our low-cost pharmacy sells many over-the-counter items and medications, and fills prescriptions from Rutgers clinicians and outside health care providers. Our capable pharmacists provide education about your medications, instructions on how to use them, and possible interactions if you take additional medications. If your medication is not available at the pharmacy when requested, it can generally be obtained within 24 hours.

We accept credit cards (MasterCard and Visa), checks, money order or cash. We participate in several prescription plans, including most United Healthcare, Medco, and Express script prescription plans.

Call our pharmacists, Jose Pullockaran or Harold Bobrow, or come in to visit them if you have a pharmacy question.
