Being a Stony Brook University resident student is not at all an isolating experience. Suffolk Transit buses take students to off-campus locations such as Smith Haven Mall and grocery stores, and university buses do the same on weekends. The new 7Bus, stationed at the Student Activities Center, stops at various locations in New York City. And the Long Island Rail Road is right on-campus as well, taking students all over Long Island and to NYC. The LIRR also takes students to Port Jefferson’s Main Street hub. With a five to 10 minute train ride, students can wander the numerous shops and restaurants there.
