Visiting Stony Brook

Please note: In response to concerns over the 2019 Novel Coronavirus (2019-nCoV), all on-campus admissions events are cancelled through March 31, as well as the scheduled Admitted Student Day on Saturday, April 4.

Stony Brook University continues to closely monitor the guidance provided by the CDC and New York State Department of Health (NYSDOH) and has determined that out of an abundance of caution, at this time, these events will not take place as planned.
