    The surrounding area is primarily residential. The town of Port Jefferson, which lies on the waterfront, is a 10 minute car ride. The area around the University is by no means urban city.

    You do not need a vehicle (I didn't have one until my last year). Most of what you need is on or immediately around campus and many of your friends will likely have vehicles. Freshman/Sophomores are generally not entitled to parking privileges as well.

    The University is about an hour from the city by car and a bit more my train. The University has its own LIRR train station on campus.
