Getting to Know SBU


In just five decades, Stony Brook University has established itself as one of America’s most dynamic public universities. U.S. News & World Report ranks Stony Brook among the top 100 public universities in the nation, and the London Times Higher Education World University Rankings places us among the top 1 percent of all the universities in the world. A member of the elite Association of American Universities, Stony Brook is also considered one of the 61 best research institutions in North America.

Nobel laureates, Guggenheim fellows, and MacArthur grant winners teach on our campus, making it a magnet for outstanding students. The University offers more than 150 undergraduate and 140 graduate programs and has a total student population of 24,600.

Stony Brook’s reach extends from its 1,000-acre campus on Long Island’s North Shore — encompassing the main academic areas, an 8,300-seat stadium and sports complex, a performing arts center, Stony Brook University Medical Center, the Health Sciences Center, and the Long Island State Veterans Home — to Stony Brook Manhattan, a Research and Development Park, three business incubators, and our Southampton campus on Long Island’s East End. Stony Brook also co-manages Brookhaven National Laboratory, joining such prestigious schools as Cornell, MIT, and Princeton on the list of major institutions that run federal research laboratories.
