Directions & Maps

Welcome to Brookdale! Reminder: the main entrance to the Lincroft campus on Newman Springs Road involves a European-style “roundabout” to ease congestion – there is no traffic light. Those using Route 520/Newman Springs Road must slow, then yield, to traffic already in the roundabout.


Driving to the Lincroft campus

From North or South New Jersey, use the Garden State Parkway

Southbound: When driving down from Northern New Jersey, be sure to use the “LOCAL EXITS” lanes on the right after the Raritan Bridge, and not the “Express” lanes on the left.  Take Exit 109-Red Bank: at the bottom of the exit ramp, turn right onto Route 520 West (Newman Springs Road).  Stay west on Route 520 about two miles; the College entrance is on the left just past the town of Lincroft.

Northbound: Use Exit 109-Red Bank and merge to the far left at the bottom of the Exit ramp. Make the left onto Route 520 West (Newman Springs Road). Stay west on Route 520 about two miles,; the College entrance is on the left just past the town of Lincroft.

From Western New Jersey:  Use Route 33 to the Halls Mills Road – North exit. This becomes Kozloski Road. Follow Kozloski Road north until its intersection with Route 537; turn right and continue east on Route 537 until it intersects with Route 34. Turn left onto Route 34 North. At the next traffic light, turn right onto Phalanx Road; stay on Phalanx about 3 miles.  The entrance to Brookdale will be on the left after crossing the Swimming River Reservoir.
