About the Brooklyn Campus

The College’s location in Brooklyn puts it at the center of one of the nation’s most diverse academic and cultural cities. The Brooklyn Academy of Music, the Brooklyn Public Library and the Brooklyn Museum of Art are all minutes away from the College’s doors.

With Manhattan just over the Brooklyn Bridge, students have quick and easy access to such world-renowned institutions as the Metropolitan Museum of Art, the New York Public Library, Madison Square Garden, Carnegie Hall and Lincoln Center.

Campus facilities include seven buildings and an outdoor theater across three blocks in the Clinton Hill neighborhood.

Campus highlights

Though the College boasts historic brownstones, its library, McEntegart Hall, was named by the New York State education commissioner as an Electronic Doorway Library. The Dillon Child Study Center, a teaching facility for St. Joseph’s child study majors and a preschool for members of the community, was one of the first of its kind on the East Coast.

About the Long Island Campus

The Long Island Campus of St. Joseph’s is located in Patchogue at 155 West Roe Boulevard, directly off Sunrise Highway. Located on the South Shore of eastern Long Island, the Long Island Campus is just minutes from the Great South Bay, L.I. MacArthur Airport, Brookhaven National Laboratory, Orient Point and many of Long Island’s ocean beaches. New York City is just a short ride on the Long Island Rail Road.

Campus facilities include six buildings and the brand new Outdoor Field Complex, spread over a 30-acre lakeside campus on the outskirts of Patchogue Village.

Campus highlights

The John A. Danzi Athletic Center, complete with an elevated track, six-lane pool, weight room, fitness center and NCAA regulation basketball court that can seat 1,500 people. The $8–million, 33,000–square–foot state–of–the–art Business Technology Center opened in October 2002, housing classrooms, computer labs and faculty offices.
