Spread across nearly 200 acres of idyllic park space, the campus blends the vintage charm of its historic brick buildings with 21st century classrooms, laboratories, library, conference rooms, computer labs, and more.
Our infrastructure and facilities are already the envy of the community college sector in New Jersey. And thanks to a new ten-year master plan, the campus will become even more student-centric. Significant enhancements to existing facilities will include:
Edison has been home to Middlesex College since its founding in 1964, when the land and buildings that composed the old Raritan Arsenal were converted for educational purposes.
It is fitting that the campus’ hometown is named after America’s greatest inventor, Thomas Alva Edison, who had his main laboratory in Menlo Park, where the phonograph was invented and the first successful incandescent lightbulb was created.
The town and its surrounding areas continue to be a vibrant hub for research and innovation, especially in the areas of healthcare, life sciences, logistics and autonomous technology, providing a wealth of career opportunities for our students.
