How to get to the Stony Brook Campus

The State University of New York at Stony Brook is situated on a 1,100 acre site on the rural north shore of Long Island in southeastern NY.

By Airplane
The Long Island MacArthur Airport in Islip is 16 miles from the campus and is serviced by direct flights by some major airlines and commuter lines. Kennedy and Laguardia airports are 50 miles to the west.

By Automobile
From the west, take the Long Island Expressway (LIE, I-495) eastbound from the Queens Midtown Tunnel in Manhattan or the Throgs Neck Bridge or Whitestone Bridge in Queens. Go east for approximately 50 miles until exit 62. Then follow Nicolls Road (County Route 97) north for nine miles. The three entrances to the West Campus of the University are on the left. The second is the main entrance. Use this one.

By Ferry
Car ferries cross Long Island Sound at Bridgeport, Connecticut to Port Jefferson, Long Island and from New London, Connecticut to Orient Point, Long Island. Take Route 25A west to Nicolls Road and then go south for one-half mile on Nicolls Road.

By Train
Take the Long Island Railroad's Port Jefferson line from Pennsylvania Station in Manhattan to Stony Brook. The train station is at the northern border of the campus and bus service to the central campus is provided. Some trains require changing at Jamaica Station and some at Huntington Station. Here is the schedule for Stony Brook.
