Stony Brook University, United States of AmericaState University of New York at Stony Brook, commonly known as Stony Brook University, is a public research university located in Stony Brook, New York, United States (on the North Shore of Long Island, about 55 miles (89 km) east of Manhattan, New York).

The Stony Brook campus was initially concentrated around what was called G-Quad (now Mendelsohn Quad), and almost all offices were located here. Classes took place in the Humanities building, and some classes were still offered at Oyster Bay. However, the 1960s and 1970s witnessed rapid growth under university president John S. Toll. More buildings were erected on campus, and academic programs and enrollment grew.

In the 1990s the school underwent a project to revitalize the campus. Numerous buildings were renovated, including the Student Activities Center, as well as each residential quad. More recently, the school completed construction of a massive Charles B. Wang Asian American Center that was funded, in part, by a $50 million dollar donation from Charles Wang.The university also constructed Kenneth P. LaValle Stadium for $22 million in 2002. Recently new apartments have been added for undergraduates. Renovations were recently completed on the original Humanities building, and new apartments continue to be built. Recently, a donation of $60 Million was made by retired math professor Dr. James Simons for the construction of the Simons Center for Physics and Geometry.
