Student Activities Center

Student Activities Center Scheduling Guide
The Student Activities Center, located on the academic mall, serves as the focal point of the University. Events at our venue include lectures, conferences, movies, concerts, and annual recognition ceremonies which bring together all members of the Stony Brook Community. While the SAC is primarily intended for the purposeful interaction of our students we enjoy hosting off-campus organizations whenever space permits. Our building exceeds ADA standards by offering multiple wheelchair access points and all of our spaces are wheelchair accessible.
