Location and Resources
The 225-acre campus is located in central Nassau County and is easily reached from the Meadowbrook Parkway (Exits M3 and M4) or from entrances on Stewart Avenue and Hempstead Turnpike.

Students attend classes in modern classroom wings and in picturesque older buildings once used by the U.S. Army and Air Force. Students have access to the latest available equipment for teaching health sciences, engineering technologies, marketing and business, computer technology, liberal and fine arts, mathematics and sciences, and the performing arts.

Central to the campus is a plaza which connects a 12-story Administrative Tower containing many campus offices, including Admissions, Registrar, Bursar, Financial Aid and others; an extensive Library (described under “Learning Resources”); and a 192,000 square-foot Physical Education Complex, which is one of the finest in the Northeast, and includes swimming and diving pools, a gymnasium, a fieldhouse, saunas, and specialized rooms for wrestling, dance, gymnastics and indoor ball games.

The Social Sciences and Visual Arts Building (Building G), which opened in January 1997, is where 9,000-10,000 students attend class. The departments of Art, Criminal Justice, Economics, History/Geography/Political Science, Psychology and Sociology hold their classes in this space. The Social Sciences and Visual Arts Building has 37 classrooms and two state-of-the-art lecture halls.

In September 1997, the new 85,000 square-foot College Center (CCB) opened. The Center accommodates student activities, student government, the Faculty-Student Association, various student clubs, and conference facilities. The central meeting area is a multi-purpose room designed to accommodate banquets, theatrical productions, film and video, dances, and large meetings. Several study lounges and two conference rooms are located on the second and third floor, along with a dark- room and computer area for the student newspaper. Still planned for future construction are a Theatre and Performing Arts complex, and improved public spaces and walkways.
