With a wooded 604-acre campus centrally located on Long Island and the nation’s 16th largest population center, SUNY College at Old Westbury offers the best of both worlds – a quiet atmosphere dedicated to learning yet just 20 miles from the heart of New York City. Among SUNY’s comprehensive colleges, Old Westbury ranks among the highest in science and engineering funding to support competitive scientific research.
Through small classes and a tradition of interpersonal education, every student has the opportunity to learn from professors who lead both in research and practical experience. Many of Old Westbury’s full-time faculty have earned either Distinguished Professor or the Chancellor’s Award for Excellence, among the highest honors within SUNY, along with achieving such notable honors as Guggenheim Fellowships and Fulbright Scholars designations.
