 RELOCATING?

Stony Brook University is situated at the geographic midpoint of Long Island — about 60 miles east of New York City and 60 miles west of Montauk Point. While the campus is just a commuter train ride to the greatest city in the world, it is also only a short distance to the beaches of Fire Island and the rural charms of Long Island’s North Fork. 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.
