Stony Brook University Hospital
Other view of the Stony Brook University HospitalThe main campus is located at the geographic midpoint of Long Island, approximately 60 miles (97 km) east of New York City and 60 miles (97 km) west of Montauk. It is split into three portions: West Campus, East Campus, and South Campus.

The West Campus houses the majority of academic buildings and campus housing. It is the location of the original buildings at the Stony Brook site, including Mendelsohn Quad, which now serves as a residential quad. In addition to this quad, there are five other residential quads located on the West Campus, in addition to apartments for both graduates and undergraduates. The residential quads surround the Academic Mall, which contains the academic buildings. The center of the mall is the Frank Melville Jr. Memorial Library, and around this building are academic buildings housing the arts, sciences, and engineering departments. The Student Activities Center is the focus of campus life and is located across from the library. The Staller Center sits adjacent to the library and contains the largest movie screen in Long Island"s Suffolk County. The Stony Brook Sports Complex holds various facilities for athletics and the largest gym in Suffolk County with a capacity of more than 5,000 people. Behind the Sports Complex sits the Kenneth P. Lavalle Stadium, which seats 8,136.

The East Campus is separated from the West Campus by Nicolls Road. It is home to the Stony Brook University Medical Center. The hospital is the largest in Suffolk County, and the attached Health Sciences Center (HSC) and Basic Science Tower (BST) houses numerous laboratories, the medical school, and numerous Allied Health programs. The Chapin Graduate Apartment Complex and the Long Island High Technology Incubator can also be found on the East Campus.

The South Campus is the smallest of the three and is separated from the West Campus by the Ashley Schiff Forest Preserve. It is home to the School of Dental Medicine, the Marine Sciences Research Center, and the Cody Center for Autism and Developmental Disabilities.

2.Branch campuses

Manhattan
Main article: Stony Brook Manhattan
In 2002 the University established a presence in Manhattan with the opening of Stony Brook Manhattan. It is located on the 2nd floor of 401 Park Avenue South. The 18,000-square-foot (1,700 m2) facility allows Stony Brook to offer professional and graduate courses targeted towards students in the city, as well as undergraduate courses during the summer and winter sessions. It is currently being expanded with another floor in an adjoining building.


Southampton
Main article: Stony Brook Southampton
On March 24, 2006, the University completed the purchase of the 81 acre Southampton College (on the east end of Long Island) property from Long Island University with the intent to develop it as a full college campus focusing on academic programs related to the environment and sustainability.Since then Stony Brook expanded its program originally started in the fall of 2005 when it started offering an undergraduate marine sciences program, with teaching and research facilities at the campus leased from Long Island University. An enrollment of about 2,000 students is expected within the next five years. Professor Martin Schoonen was appointed interim dean of Southampton campus on August 3, 2006.

Research and Development Campus
On November 3, 2005, the University announced that it had formally acquired 246 acres (1.00 km2) of the adjacent Flowerfield property, originally owned by the Gyrodyne Company of America, through eminent domain, three years after the University had expressed its desire to acquire the property.

Stony Brook intends to use this property as a Research and Development Campus, similar to other university-affiliated science parks around the country. The campus will ultimately house ten new buildings. Set for completion in 2008 is the Center of Excellence in Wireless and Information Technology. Construction for the Advanced Energy Research and Technology Center commenced in the Summer of 2008 and is expected to be completed by 2009.


3.Rankings

In 2005 "Stony Brook was one of 33 universities in The Center"s Top American Research Universities that ranked 26th through 50th nationally in at least one of the measures, and the University scored better in the category than such institutions as the University of Massachusetts, Tufts University, the University of Tennessee, and Indiana University."

In August 2007 U.S. News & World Report, for the sixth time, ranked SBU among the top 100 national universities in the United States and among the top 50 public national universities.[10][11] The University was tied for 96th in the U.S. News rating of "best national universities," and tied for 45th in the category of "top public national universities." In January 2007 it was ranked 34th best value among the country’s public institutions for in-state students by Kiplinger"s Personal Finance.

In 2005, the University tied for 97th in the U.S. News rating of national universities, which the magazine defines as universities that "offer a wide range of undergraduate majors as well as master"s and doctoral degrees; many strongly emphasize research."[13] Stony Brook was tied for 45th in the category of top public national universities.[14] Stony Brook"s engineering program was tied for 67th for universities whose highest degree offered is a doctorate; the university was one of only 36 cited by the US News for the integration of research into undergraduate education. Stony Brook also ranked 24th in least debt among national universities.

In 2001 it became a member of the Association of American Universities (AAU), an invitation-only organization of the top 62 research universities in the U.S.

The University is cited nine times as being among the best in the nation in the current rankings of graduate schools in US News & World Report’s 2007 edition of “America’s Best Graduate Schools.” The departments with the highest rankings were Physics (22), Mathematics (26) and Geoscience (28). The Nuclear Physics program ranked No. 4 and the Geometry program (categorized as a Mathematics specialty) was ranked No. 7, just behind Columbia and ahead of Michigan, the University of Chicago, and NYU.In addition, the philosophy department is considered to be among the top programs in the United States for the study of continental philosophy, particularly in the area of phenomenology.

In 2006, Stony Brook was ranked as the 136th best university in the world—out of more than 8,300—by the London-based Times Higher Education Supplement.

The University was also ranked among the top 152 universities in the world by the Institute for Higher Education in Shanghai.It was also ranked among the top 100 universities in North and Latin America, with the Institute grouping it in the category of number 58-77. Joining Stony Brook in that grouping were such institutions as Dartmouth, Massachusetts, and Virginia.

The Princeton Review (not associated with Princeton University) ranked Stony Brook #1 for least happy students, #12 for Diverse Student Population, and is listed as one of the "Best Northeastern Colleges" and "America"s Best Value College".

4.Names and logos

Throughout its first 50 years, Stony Brook has undergone a number of changes in its logo and on how it is named. In 1957, while it was still located in Oyster Bay, it was officially called the State University College of Long Island at Oyster Bay. A year after, it was changed to State University Center on Long Island at Oyster Bay.

When it moved to its present campus in Stony Brook in 1962, it became officially known as the State University of New York at Stony Brook, or SUNY-Stony Brook (SUNY-SB). Another form used in documents was University at Stony Brook (USB) as can be seen in one of the previous logos.

Today, the university is more popularly known and marketed as Stony Brook University, with the new logo designed by Milton Glaser.
