Stony Brook University is coordinating free bus transportation to campus on select dates and times for undergraduate and graduate students.

Transport is provided from John F. Kennedy (JFK) airport to Stony Brook University's Main Campus located in Stony Brook, New York on the approved days/times as listed below. If you are flying into a different airport, the free shuttle bus will not be available from there. You are welcome to purchase, at your own cost, separate transportation to JFK airport from where our free shuttles will depart. Students living in Campus Housing will sign up for the shuttle through the housing portal. Students not living in Campus Housing may use the link below to register.

Confirmation emails, with directions for pick-up, will be sent to the email collected once the registration deadline has passed. Service is not guaranteed and may be cancelled due to low number of registrations. Students will be notified, by email, if the service they requested is cancelled. You will be able to update your responses up until the deadline; you will need to use the same email from your original request in order to access your responses. We recommend using your Stony Brook email if you have one assigned.
