Discover Your Pride and Purpose at Hofstra University
At Hofstra University, students live, work and study on a beautiful, state-of-the-art campus that’s only 25 miles east of Manhattan. Our 240-acre campus is lush, green and spacious, with ivy-covered buildings and outstanding facilities, just minutes from all the adventure and opportunity the New York metropolitan region has to offer.
Best of Both Worlds
With the top-notch resources and wide-ranging programs of a large university, and the sense of community and personal attention of small college, Hofstra is a great place for students who are looking for a traditional campus experience without sacrificing the networking opportunities, internship experiences, and cultural offerings of a bustling metropolis.
Hofstra students have endless opportunities for experiential learning, on and off-campus. Opportunities are available to conduct research with a distinguished professor; intern with top-tier companies in finance or media, in the state Legislature or Congress; work in our cutting-edge facilities such as the Martin B. Greenberg Trading Room or WRHU-88.7 FM, Radio Hofstra University which was named the top college radio station in the country by The Princeton Review (2014).
As a Hofstra student, you can chose to live and learn in one of our 35 residence halls, each with a unique flair, community and life of its own. We also offer eight living/learning communities, which give students the opportunity to live with many of the same students they are in classes with, and well as students who share the same passion for leadership, health sciences, or the visual or performing arts.
The Jeanne Clery Act requires colleges and universities to disclose their security policies, keep a public crime log, publish an annual crime report and provide timely warnings to students and campus employees about a crime posing an immediate or ongoing threat to students and campus employees.
