Students can now view the Spring 2014 Student Instructional Rating Survey (SIRS) results at

The posted results include all Spring 2014 courses that had surveys in Sakai or on paper, excluding courses taught by Teaching Assistants. Any surveys that were conducted in eCollege are not yet available and will be posted at a later date.
New Brunswick has announced a host of parking changes to deal with the expected large crowds for the Rutgers v Penn State game on Saturday. The latest is that no parking will be allowed on Easton Avenue, due to the importance of that road for emergency vehicles traveling to and from the two New Brunswick hospitals. More information is posted at Nixle and at the New Brunswick web site

Previously New Brunswick announced that they would charge $20 for parking in Buccleuch Park (correction - daytime games only). There is also an unconfirmed report that street parking at College Avenue meters will cost $10 for the day.

Correction: New Brunswick has additionally clarified that parking in Buccleuch Park is only permitted during daytime games (for a fee of $20). Cars must be removed from the park at sundown.

"Single Sign-On" now university-wide

Starting Sept 8, when you sign on to any Rutgers web site that uses the Central Authentication System (CAS), you are automatically logged on to almost every other Rutgers web site without needing to retype your password.

For example, if you log in to the SIRS Results web site, then immediately go to Sakai or ScarletMail you'll find you no longer need to enter your password (previously only Sakai and acted as "portals", and this only worked if you started at one of those two sites. Now it's universal).

Please remember to "exit" or "quit" your browser in order to log out. Clicking the "logout" button on most Rutgers web sites now does nothing, since CAS has control of your login. It's possible to log out of CAS, but the only way to be sure that you are completely logged out of all web sites is to exit your web browser. Please note that closing the browser window may not be sufficient - you need to use the "Exit" or "Quit" menu (or the control-q or command-q keyboard shortcut). 

Some Rutgers web sites that use their own password system, including the SIRS Department Archive, continue to work independently. Also, some sites that require extra security for privacy or financial reasons will continue to require passwords at all times even though they use CAS.

Refer to the CAS web page for more information about single sign-on. 

Sept 5 - College Avenue Closed

College Avenue is closed today, Friday September 5th, for the Student Involvement Fair, between Bartlett and Senior Streets.
