FAQ & FYI
Q: What airport should I fly into?
A: LaGuardia (LGA) is 5 minutes from campus and John F Kennedy (JFK) is 30 minutes away. We would suggest avoiding Newark International airport as you may save a buck on a flight, but you'll make up for it on ground transportation and time. Though Newark isn't far in distance, it can take an addition 3 hours or so to get to NYSUM.
*Estimated times are contingent on traffic.
Q: How do we get from the airport to campus?
A: We will provide airport pick up and drop off for student arrival and departures.
