SUNY Farmingdale Housing and Nearby Apartments


SUNY Farmingdale has more than doubled its number of full-time students since the year 2000, shooting from around 3,000 full-time undergraduates to more than 6,000 in 2013. The number of part-time students has remained mostly unchanged during the same period. But even with this explosion of full-time degree candidates, SUNY Farmingdale emphatically remains a commuter school, with less than ten percent of the population living in on-campus housing. For those 600 or so students lucky enough to get on-campus housing, there are three residence halls from which to choose, either Orchard, Dewey, or Alumni Hall. Many of the residents are from the international or out-of-state community. The vast majority of SUNY Farmingdale students do need to find off-campus housing, and Urban Edge can help. We offer you extensive, constantly updated listings of Long Island rental apartments. Many of the homes you see here on Urban Edge are offered directly by the building's owner, so there is not a brokers fee involved in those transactions.

About SUNY Farmingdale

Farmingdale State College, SUNY began its 100-year-plus run as the oldest public institution of higher learning on Long Island back in 1912. The school was called New York State School Of Agriculture on Long Island back then, and has gone through many name changes over the century (most involving some sort variation on the agriculture or, later, the "technical", themes), including the recent switch in the mid-aughts from SUNY Farmingdale to the current Farmingdale State College, or FSC. But through all of the iterations, the location of the school, in the Suffolk County hamlet of East Farmingdale, has remained the same, spread out over what is now 380 acres of landscaped, wooded suburbia. Although the focus of the college's offerings were agricultural for many decades, today's university offers a broad range in its courses of study, though all take a strong technical approach to learning. There are four schools within SUNY Farmingdale--the School of Engineering Technology, the School of Business, the School of Health Sciences, and the School of Arts and Sciences--at which the more than 8,100 undergraduate students can pursue some 37 different degrees. Among the most popular majors here at Farmingdale State College are Business, Management, and Marketing; Engineering Technologies and other Engineering-Related Fields; Computer and Information Sciences and Support Services; and the Health Professions. But just because Farmingdale is primarily a commuter school doesn't mean there's not a vibrant campus life. Students can choose from among nearly 70 clubs and organizations in which to dedicate their time and energy (and, of course, meet people and have fun), including the Focus Photography Club, Student Veterans of America, the Muslim Student Association, the Flag Football Club, and a chapter of Alpha Phi Delta. There are also several active intramural sports leagues at FSC, as well as fitness and group exercises classes. And the university fields 20 NCAA Division III sports teams, ten each for men and women. Scroll down for apartments near SUNY Farmingdale.
