Directions & Map


To Main Campus

Stony Brook University is situated on an 1,100 acre site on the north shore of Long Island in southeastern New York. We are approximately 60 miles east of New York City.

Directions By Car 

Take the Long Island Expresseway to Exit 62, and follow Nicolls Road (Route 97) north for 9 miles. The main entrance to the University is on the left.

Directions By Train

Take the Long Island Railroad's Port Jefferson line 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 Station generally require transfers at Jamaica, Huntington or Hicksville. The Ronkonkoma line is the fastest and offers more trains, but is about 20 minutes from campus.


The Institute for STEM Education Offices are located in the basement of the Life Sciences Building, Room 092 (to the left when you go down the stairs or elevator from the lobby).
