Ground Transportation on Long Island
If you are coming by car, you should know that you have two options:
- Visitors to the university may obtain a permit and park in the specific areas designated in the permit. According to internal regulations, as parking spaces on campus are severely limited, visitors should park in the peripheral lots or parking garages;
- Visitors with no permit can use university garages or metered spaces, which are subject to a parking fee.
If you need to obtain a parking permit, please, contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org with your request by June 21, 2017.
