Outstanding Value

U.S. News & World Report ranks Stony Brook as one of

the nation’s best buys in higher education based on the

quality of our academic programs and cost. At Stony

Brook, an excellent education can be yours without

accumulating significant debt. This means you’ll have

more resources available to help pay for graduate

studies or any number of life passages yet to come.

Affordable Tuition

Stony Brook’s tuition is very affordable. This means

our students will have less future debt and more savings

to help pay for graduate studies or any number of life

passages yet to come. And, because Stony Brook

students go on to graduate and professional schools at

a rate twice the national average, financing graduate

studies is something you’ll want to consider when

making decisions concerning your education.

Financial Assistance

Financial assistance is available to undergraduates in the

form of federal and state programs that provide grants,

loans, and work-study to assist eligible students in pursuing

their academic goals. The Office of Financial Aid

and Student Employment not only provides information

about available financial aid, but also about student

employment opportunities not based on financial need.

In addition, the University offers merit-based and athletic

scholarships to outstanding applicants.

Great Location

Stony Brook’s 1,100 acre campus is situated on Long

Island’s North Shore, at the midpoint between New

York City and Montauk, nine miles north of the Long

Island Expressway on Nicolls Road.

The focal point of Stony Brook’s spacious and attractive

campus is a fountain in the center of the six-acre

Academic Mall, surrounded by sod lawns, gardens,

trees, and a brook that cascades down steps leading to

the campus’s main entrance. Students discover indoor

and outdoor reflecting ponds and a friendship garden at

the new Charles B. Wang Center, that recognizes Asian

and American cultures. The areas surrounding the

Academic Mall offer a nature lover’s paradise of wildlife

sanctuaries, nature preserves, woodlands, and foliage.

From campus it’s an easy bicycle ride to picturesque

villages and harbors of the North Shore or Long Island

Sound beaches where spectacular sunsets and some of

the best windsurfing on the East Coast can be enjoyed.

A short drive will take you to spectacular Atlantic ocean

beaches at Fire Island, vineyards of the North Fork, or

the elegant resorts of the Hamptons. Or, take a ninetyminute

train ride to the heart of one of the most exciting

cities in the world – New York City!

Supportive Commuter Resources

Almost half of Stony Brook’s undergraduates are commuters.

The Office of Commuter Student Affairs offers

valuable services, programs, advocacy, and outreach on

behalf of commuter students. Programs offered include

workshops in car maintenance, internet job searches,

stress management, and various activities and receptions

designed to promote faculty-student interaction. And,

with a Long Island Rail Road station right on campus,

commuting by rail turns travel time into study time!

All students are eligible for a computer account upon

enrolling at Stony Brook. This account enables commuters

to access the University’s computers (and the

internet) from home. Commuters are also eligible to get

a phone mail account, providing a voice mailbox where

messages can be left by anyone, on or off campus, and

messages can be retrieved from any telephone.

Commuter lockers are available for those who need a

place to store books and bags.

Commuters enjoy relaxing in the Commuter Commons, a

bi-level lounge located in the Student Activities Center.

The lower level is a great place for students to relax with

friends, play a game of billiards or table tennis, or sit

down on a comfortable couch and watch a favorite show

on the large screen television.

The Off-Campus Housing Service at Stony Brook maintains

an up-to-date database detailing available local housing,

and its friendly staff will provide a personalized computer

search of available housing to meet individual

in various cultural traditions. Some of these

include the African Student Union, Asian Students’

Alliance, Caribbean Students Organization, Club India,

and Latin American Student Organization.

Events Galore

A wide variety of lectures, seminars, concerts, exhibits,

theatrical performances, movies, and sporting events

are scheduled regularly during the academic year.

Stony Brook’s Staller Center for the Arts is the focal

point for concerts, exhibits, theatrical performances,

and movies. More than 50 major events are scheduled

in the 1,100-seat Main Theatre during the year and

more than 200 recitals and concerts are given with no

admission charge. Recently released movies are shown

on the forty-foot movie screen and the 4,700-square-foot

art gallery offers regularly changing exhibitions of

works by on- and off-campus artists.

Complete Athletic Facilities

The Student Activities Center houses a Wellness Center

and two dance and exercise studios. The new center

features state-of-the-art cardiovascular equipment,

strength training equipment, lockers, and showers.

Exciting Athletic Programs

Stony Brook’s entire intercollegiate athletics program

competes in NCAA Division I, with lots of fun and

excitement for all. Nineteen of the Seawolves’ teams

compete in the America East Athletic Conference and

are eligible for the Conference’s automatic bid to the

NCAA tournament in all sports: men’s baseball,

women’s softball and volleyball, and men’s and women’s

soccer, basketball, cross country, swimming, tennis,

and both indoor and outdoor track and field; the football

team is a Division I - AA Scholarship Program and

competes as an independent.

Stony Brook also offers an extensive intramural and

recreation program as well as a variety of club sports.

The intramural program is recognized as one of the

finest in the Northeast.
