Stony Brook University is located in the village of Stony Brook, New York, a residential neighborhood 65 miles east of New York City. We are easy to reach by air, rail, ferry, or car. Campus maps, directions, and further information are available on our Web site.
For overnight stays, the area offers accommodations within five miles of the campus. The Three Village Inn features a "taste of New England" in historic Stony Brook village. Located in the heart of historic Port Jefferson, Danfords on the Sound also provides quality accommodations, many with harbor views. Holiday Inn Express in Stony Brook is just a short drive away as well. Also within driving distance is the Marriot Residence Inn in Holtsville. Useful information for planning your visit is available from the Long Island Convention & Vistors Bureau.
