Garden City, New York—the home of Adelphi’s main campus since 1929—is one of Long Island’s most historic and scenic towns. Located fewer than 20 miles from Manhattan, Garden City is a tight-knit community of just over 20,000 residents. Aptly named, the village is an oasis of bucolic beauty with fine facilities—such as excellent public schools—as well as a thriving downtown with a mixture of small shops and restaurants and national retailers. Garden City provides a safe and elegant home for Adelphi’s main campus.
Garden City offers easy access to New York City via car and public transportation. The Long Island Rail Road has a stop just a short walk from campus, and the ride to Midtown Manhattan is just 45 minutes. The railroad also connects commuters to Brooklyn and Queens and to regions across Long Island.
Garden City and Long Island itself boast numerous attractions—from scenic beaches, parks and nature preserves—to highly regarded arts and cultural organizations. Known for its high quality of life, the region has a diverse economy with an array of farms and vineyards, leading science and technology companies and thriving restaurants and retailers.
Through its satellite centers, Adelphi extends its reach across the New York metropolitan region.
Adelphi University’s Manhattan Center, at 75 Varick Street on the corner of Varick and Canal Streets, is located in Manhattan’s SoHo neighborhood, where art and commerce commingle. The Center is within quick access of Wall Street and Midtown, and is well served by subways that link students, faculty and administrators to Brooklyn, Queens and the Bronx.
The Center, a contemporary facility, encompasses more than 31,000 square feet of classrooms, conference rooms, student lounge areas, technology labs, a research branch library, a photography gallery, and an art gallery.
Adelphi University offers academic opportunities for undergraduate and graduate students at two locations in Suffolk County, Long Island.
