Hofstra Campus Offers Metro New York Location,
Graduate-Student Housing and Top Facilities
Situated on Hofstra's beautiful, 240-acre campus, the School of Medicine offers the educational, recreational, cultural and social benefits of Long Island's largest private university. With a population of over 12,000 undergraduate and graduate students, from 47 states and territories and 67 countries, Hofstra's diverse student body provides a welcoming and stimulating environment.
The 48,000-square-foot, newly renovated Medical Education Center serves as the School of Medicine's main academic building. This state-of-the-art academic center offers an interactive, 108-seat lecture hall, a medical education library, gross anatomy lab, 16 flexible learning areas and a full-service café. Students may also visit or access all of Hofstra's libraries and those of the North Shore-LIJ Health System.
Attractive, suite-style graduate student housing on campus; an array of dining options and 21 campus eateries; extensive athletic and recreational facilities, including an indoor swimming pool, fitness center and gymnasium; and more than 500 cultural events annually all make the Hofstra campus an ideal place to live as well as a great resource for those who commute.
Just 25 miles from Manhattan, Hofstra's suburban location is close to the excitement of the city, which is easily accessible by car or the Long Island Railroad. The campus is also close to both J.F. Kennedy and LaGuardia airports. The University runs frequent shuttles to nearby train stations and participates in Zip Car, a national car-sharing program offering students low-cost car rentals from an on-campus location. There's also free campus parking.
Located near Nassau County's center, the school is in close proximity to shopping, restaurants and movies, world-famous Jones Beach and Long Beach, parks, golf courses and sporting arenas. The Hamptons, a famous resort area on Long Island's east end, and Fire Island, an island beach resort overflowing with young people, are little more than an hour away.
