Introducing Stony Brook University


Also known as the State University of New York, Stony Brook, Stony Brook University is one of the four research-oriented SUNY university centers. The university was founded in 1957 as the State University College on Long Island with a temporary campus at the William Robertson Coe Planting Fields estate in Oyster Bay.

In 1962, the University moved to its present campus in Stony Brook on the North Shore of Long Island, about 55 miles (89 km) east of Manhattan, when it became officially known as the State University of New York at Stony Brook. Today, the university is known and marketed as Stony Brook University.
The school has grown dramatically in enrollment and reputation over 50 years. The University consists of twelve schools and colleges, including the Graduate School, and has an enrollment of more than 24,700 students. Stony Brook University is considered a flagship campus of the SUNY system and is the second largest, in terms of enrollment, of the four SUNY university centers in the system.

Stony Brook is one of two public Universities in New York State to have both a medical school and a dental school. Stony Brook operates the Marine Sciences Research Center, New York State's only center for marine and atmospheric research, education, and public service. Since 1998, the University has co-managed Brookhaven National Laboratory under a contract from the U.S. Department of Energy. In 2002 the University established a presence in Manhattan with the opening of "Stony Brook Manhattan."

Scientific research is a hallmark at Stony Brook.
