Current and Future Projects

At Adelphi University, we are continually working to maintain, update and improve our buildings and facilities. Our main campus in Garden City spans 75 beautiful acres and includes more than 20 buildings of varying ages. Together with our dynamic learning hubs in Manhattan, Suffolk County and Hudson Valley, there is a perpetual need for maintenance, upgrades and renovations. In addition to sustaining the fundamental integrity of our infrastructure, we also must remain current with the technology and facilities that enable Adelphi University to provide the ideal learning environment for a world-class academic experience that fully supports our students’ success.
