The Osher Lifelong Learning Institute at Rutgers University (OLLI-RU) is for individuals over 50 who are looking for an opportunity to expand their horizons, learn in an engaging environment, and meet new friends. OLLI-RU offers noncredit education that is stimulating, friendly, and informal–there are no tests and no grades! You will be part of a learning community that is full of diversity, insight, wisdom, intellectual and cultural stimulation, and friendship.



Courses meet once a week for 90 minutes (with some exceptions) in New Brunswick (Rutgers Lifelong Learning Center, 3 Rutgers Plaza, New Brunswick) or Freehold (Brookdale Community College, 3680 Route 9 South, Freehold). Please visit our Directions page for detailed information on both locations, including parking information. Both facilities are completely accessible. OLLI-RU administrative offices are also located in New Brunswick at the Rutgers Lifelong Learning Center. 

OLLI-RU is proud to offer year-round programming, with two 10-week sessions (fall and spring), and two 5-week sessions (winter and summer). Our Important Dates page has detailed information regarding upcoming sessions.
