Why choose Long Island University?
Campus Services

Brooklyn is one of the hottest neighborhoods in New York City, and LIU Brooklyn is right in the heart of it all—located steps away from the Barclays Center and the hip restaurants, cafés, and boutiques of Fort Greene. Our beautifully landscaped 11-acre campus—ranked the third-safest in the nation and the safest in New York City by The Daily Beast—offers easy access to the rich professional opportunities and resources of Manhattan. Our students have intern at top companies—from Marvel Comics to The New York Stock Exchange to NBC Universal.

Participate in LIU’s English Language Institute, a program for non-native English speakers that helps you meet university requirements, and develop your skills in conversation, reading, writing, and grammar. LIU provides free tutoring in all areas of study, and ongoing English language support after you complete the program.
