Long Island’s villages, hamlets and towns each have their own distinctive character,
and each features a wide range of housing choices, culture, and recreation. The University
offers several housing options for incoming graduate students who wish to reside on
campus as well as support for those who prefer to live off campus.
The Division of Campus Residences offers apartment-style living for graduate students
and their families. All apartments are fully furnished, and include premium cable
and high-speed Internet. Each complex has fitness, computing and laundry facilities.
All new international and domestic graduate students are guaranteed housing as long
as their deposit and housing requests are in by the Fall application deadline.
All prospective students should be advised that that Stony Brook University is a tobacco-free
campus, so there is no tobacco use in any of the University apartments.
