Brockport Downtown

Also in Rochester is Brockport Downtown, our downtown extension site that offers graduate and selected undergraduate courses at a location convenient for those who work in the city or who live in the metropolitan area or its eastern suburbs.

Our students report that SUNY Brockport has the feel of a small community and the advantages of a large university.  While we hope you will take the virtual tour of our University, we most certainly encourage you to visit us in person!
