LIU CW Post Housing and Nearby Apartments


It's no surprise that many undergraduate students find it appealing to live in LIU CW Post on-campus housing. Approximately 1,600 students move into one of LIU's eight on-campus residence halls each fall, which offer both traditional dormitory-style arrangements as well as smaller houses with suites. But still, with a total population of both undergraduate and graduate students topping 7,000, that leaves a lot of people needing off-campus housing every year. And that's where a site like Urban Edge comes in handy. Not only will you find constantly updated listings of Nassau County rental apartments (and beyond) here, many of them are offered directly from the owners, and are "no-fee."

About LIU (Long Island University) CW Post

The privately owned and operated family of schools that make up today's Long Island University was actually born in downtown Brooklyn, in 1926, on the site that today continues to be the home of LIU Brooklyn. And while the Brooklyn campus was then and remains now a vibrant institution of higher learning--with, for example, more than 200 degree programs, on-campus housing in three residential halls, and a number of NCAA Division I athletic teams--the school quickly outgrew its relatively small space. Plus, with the post-war housing boom and subsequent rise of suburbia, LIU's trustees and administrators saw an opportunity to the west, out on Long Island, and so purchased the estate of cereal heiress Marjorie Merriweather Post in 1951, in the Nassau County village of Brookville. And thus LIU CW Post (it's named after Marjorie's father, who basically invented breakfast cereal), came into being. Today LIU CW Post is spread out over some 300 acres of wooded, suburban land in one of the prettiest (and most affluent) spots in all of Long Island, on the historic Gold Coast within the town of Oyster Bay. There are five schools comprising LIU CW Post: the College of Education, Information and Technology; the College of Liberal Arts and Sciences; the College of Management; the School of Health Professions and Nursing; and the School of Visual and Performing Arts. And within these schools, LIU Post undergraduate and graduate students can pursue over 250 programs of study, from Accounting, Physics, Genetic Counseling, Global Climate Change, Film, and Writing to Medical Imaging, Broadcasting, Branding & Licensing, Fashion Merchandising, and Digital Game Design. There are also several doctoral programs offered at LIU CW Post, in Information Studies, for example, and Clinical Psychology. In addition to simply being a lovely place in which to pursue your education, the LIU CW Post campus functions as a local cultural destination, centered upon the fabulous, 2,242-seat theater at the Tilles Center of Performing Arts, which hosts some 70 musical and theatrical performances each season. Past performers at the Tilles Center have included Yo Yo Ma, the Paper Bag Players, Bill Cosby, James Taylor, the Big Apple Circus, Alvin Ailey American Dance Theater, and the Boston Symphony Orchestra. And when LIU CW Post students aren't taking in the arts, they can get active in more than 60 clubs, or work out in the huge, state-of-the-art Pratt Fitness Center, or hang with their fraternity brothers or sorority sisters at one of the school's 16 Greek houses. There are also plenty of intramural sports leagues on campus, and the LIU Post Pioneers field a number of NCAA Division II teams for both men and women.
