James' retirement as president in , Dr.
Donald Farish was chosen to succeed him and began further expansion on the Glassboro campus, opening state-of-the-art Science Hall in and a building to house the College of Education in In addition, acquisitions during the beginning of Farish's tenure as president led to the development of a tract of land bordering US Route and State Route 55 as the West Campus.
The Presidency of Donald J. Farish was noted for a continued crackdown on the university's partying culture which declined alongside a rise in SAT scores and class rank among the incoming freshman classes.

The crackdown on the partying culture began in earnest in with the official banning of kegs for use by Greek letter organizations. On March 20, , President Farish announced a joint venture between the university and Major League Soccer MLS to construct a new athletic complex based around a 20, seat soccer-specific stadium on property owned by the campus at the intersection of U. Route and Route The stadium was planned to be complete for the start of the MLS season.
Unfortunately, budget problems in New Jersey resulted in cutbacks, including funding for infrastructure upgrades required to handle increased traffic that would have come with an MLS team. The plan fell through and the stadium project was relocated to nearby Chester, Pennsylvania. The northern portion of the West Campus expansion currently contains the South Jersey Technology Park as well as room for future expansion; the southern portion of the West Campus expansion will accommodate both academic and athletic facilities.
The University in opened a The health care company broke ground May 24, on a bed, ,square-foot facility that is expected to open in September It is planned to have 25 buildings to provide competitively price, Class "A" facilities for budding entrepreneurs, start-up and established companies. SJTP was incorporated as a non-profit corporation with its own board of directors. Jones Innovation Center, has been leased completely out and the revenue will help build a second building. The Tech Park's first incubated business, SocialReach , has successfully graduated into their own offices in Philadelphia.
In an effort to find Farrell's assailants, television stations in Philadelphia, New Jersey and New York City aired reports on the murder, and America's Most Wanted twice featured segments on the incident. Following Farrell's murder a new campus security initiative was undertaken, starting with a point plan proposed by President Farish. The plan included hiring additional security staff, adding more fully trained police officers,starting a student patrol program, an expansion of the Safe Walk and Ride program, improving lighting in and around campus, installation of CCTV cameras, and changing security and police coverage from an 8-hour to a hour shift.
It was announced on June 26, that Rowan would be partnering with Cooper University Hospital to create a new four-year medical school to reside on Broadway in Camden.

In January , a state advisory committee proposed a plan  to merge Rowan with the Camden campus of Rutgers University which would have been separated from Rutgers under Rowan's name.

Full-time, non-commuter students are required to live in on-campus until the completion of their sophomore year, and are thus guaranteed on-campus housing during this time period. After this, students must enter into a housing lottery. With the university's continued growth, housing at Rowan's main Glassboro campus has reached capacity. To counter this, the university offers incentives for freshman students who volunteer to live in tripled units three students in a standard two person dorm room. As of fall , the tripling program has been highly successful at gaining voluntary sign-ups.
These buildings, located on the northeastern corner of the campus, feature shared "suite" type living arrangements sharing a common lounge and bathroom. Each building contains three floors and are considered freshmen-only. It houses freshmen in suites made up of two to three rooms that share a common bathroom.
Holly Pointe Commons is a 1, bed housing complex including a seat dining hall opened in the Fall semester. Constructed on the former location of Mansion Park Apartments, the taller portion of the complex is seven stories and is connected to a four-story building via overhead walkways. It is the first project constructed under a public-private partnership on Rowan's campus.
In mid, the Borough of Glassboro issued Requests for Qualified Developers for the remaining developable land along Rowan Boulevard. Additionally, the Borough is seeking to redevelop the former Roxy theatre location in Downtown Glassboro. Evergreen Hall and Mullica Hall are adjacent to each other and house students and students respectively.
Both buildings are 3 stories tall and use suites containing two rooms joined by a bathroom. They were the first residence halls on campus, and were used for classrooms for some time until they were renovated in and returned to living spaces. The suites share one or two bathrooms depending on configuration. Edgewood Park Apartments is a complex of four identical buildings, each with three floors and 24 quad-occupancy apartments, housing students. Triad Apartments was acquired by the University in and contains three wings of four floors each.
The building's first floor was used as classroom space and the Office of Public Safety until a renovation in the early s converted it into student housing with air conditioning. The other three floors were unrenovated. It holds students. The Townhouse Complex was built in and has apartment style living units that accommodate students in single occupancy rooms. However, some students choose to live here because it is closer to most academic buildings and quieter than other locations.
There is a three-story parking garage to accommodate Townhouse residents.
Rowan Boulevard Apartments opened in September and is made up of four buildings housing students located along the south side of Route and Main Street. Three buildings housing students were completed for the — school year and the final building was completed the following year.
