Changes to the Rutgers University Photo Gallery Policy

A recent policy change means that high resolution images from the Rutgers University Photo Gallery are now available free of charge for Rutgers projects.

The gallery offers access to professional images of Rutgers buildings, faculty, staff, and students. Previously, low resolution images (72 dots per inch, suitable for projects such as PowerPoint presentations, email newsletters, and webpages) were available for free download, while high resolution images (300 dots per inch, suitable for print projects such as flyers, posters, and brochures) had to be purchased for $20 each. Now, however, because of changes due to RCM, the high resolution images are also available at no cost to the Rutgers community.

Finding the perfect image for your project is as simple as following these three easy steps:

  1. Log in to the gallery using your NetID and password.
  2. Browse through the categories to identify a photo you like.
  3. For low resolution images, read and accept the terms and conditions to download the image immediately; or, for high resolution images, contact photo archivist Jane Hart with the file name and how you intend to use the photo.

In the event that you can’t find an image you like in the gallery, you may request access to the University Communications and Marketing Photo Archive, which contains thousands of additional photos for your perusal. Contact Jane for access to the archive.
