Hofstra University - Pride & Purpose

What we mean when we say “Hofstra University, Pride and Purpose”

Connect with NYC

Hofstra University is located in Hempstead, Long Island—just 25 miles east of New York City and only minutes from beautiful beaches, shopping and restaurants, and two international airports.

Hofstra's proximity to New York City gives our students invaluable opportunities for internships, experiential learning, and unique social and educational resources. Visit the Met as part of an Art History class, or the NASDAQ as part of a business class. Go into the city on the weekend with friends and explore South Street Seaport, Brooklyn Heights or Soho. Each semester, hundreds of our students integrate their three-credit internship at places like NBC, the New York Mets, Atlantic Records, KPMG or the United Nations into their academic schedule.

Each semester, our Explore Next Door program sponsors several free trips to New York City that will make you feel like a native in no time. See Broadway shows, catch a baseball game, tour Central Park by bike, or snack on fried dough at the annual Feast of San Gennaro in Little Italy. At Hofstra, students benefit from the adventure, cultural life and resources of an international metropolis, as well as the traditional campus experience.

Students live, work and play on Hofstra's 240-acre suburban campus, which is a nationally recognized arboretum and is home to more than 75 outdoor sculptures. Our students attend class in ivy-covered academic buildings that house state-of-the-art research and instructional facilities. Each spring, the Hofstra community looks forward to the thousands of tulips that bloom across campus, a nod to our Dutch heritage, and in the  fall, Hofstra hosts its annual Fall Festival: Parent and Alumni Weekend, which features  a concert by pop artists, a carnival, and Fireworks by Grucci. Students take advantage of being close to Jones Beach, Long Beach and the fabled East End of Long Island. Great shopping, hotels and restaurants are less than 10 minutes away in Garden City.

Come to campus, sit on one of the beautifully landscaped quads, and study. Then catch the campus shuttle to a nearby Long Island Rail Road station and be in Manhattan in less than an hour. It's all here at Hofstra.
