Stony Brook University is situated on a 1,100 acre site on the North Shore of Long Island. We are approximately 35 miles from the Queens border, 55 miles from Manhattan !

By Plane

The Long Island MacArthur Airport in Islip is about 15 miles from the campus and is serviced by direct flights by major airlines and commuter lines. New York City Area Airports (including JFK and La Guardia airports) are about 45 miles to the west. If you fly into JFK look into AirTrain to the LIRR at Jamaica Station

By Car

From the west, take the Long Island Expressway (LIE, I-495) eastbound from the Queens Midtown Tunnel in Manhattan or the Throgs Neck Bridge or Whitestone Bridge in Queens to exit 62 and follow Nicolls Road (Route 97) north for about 8 miles. The main entrance to the University is on the left.

By Ferry

Car ferries cross Long Island Sound at Bridgeport, Connecticut to Port Jefferson, Long Island. Take Route 25A west to Nicolls Road, and turn left on Nicolls. The University entrances are the first three intersections you come to. From New London, Connecticut to Orient Point, Long Island, take Route 25A west to Nicolls Road and proceed as above.

By Train

Take the Long Island Railroad's Port Jefferson line from Penn Station in Manhattan to Stony Brook. The LIRR station is at the north end of the campus; bus service to the central campus is provided. Trains to and from Penn generally require transfers at Jamaica or Huntington. Hicksville is also a transfer point on some lines. Click here for the Stony Brook train station schedule.
