Adelphi's Garden City campus is university's main campus, offering undergraduate and graduate degrees, post-doctoral study, and adult education programs through its schools: College of Arts and Sciences, the Derner Institute of Advanced Psychological Studies, the Honors College, the Adult Undergraduate Degree Program (Adult Academic Programs in University College), the Robert B. Willumstad School of Business, Schools of Nursing and Social Work, and the Ruth S. Ammon School of Education. Located near Long Island's parks and beaches, the 75-acre campus is only 45 minutes from New York City, offering the combined advantages of a major metropolitan area and a safe, suburban campus environment.
To meet the needs of students and the wider community, Adelphi extends its reach beyond the Garden City campus through its centers in Manhattan; Hauppauge, and the Hudson Valley, as well as through a variety of off-site programs in diverse locales throughout the metropolitan region.
Adelphi University’s Manhattan Center, at 75 Varick Street on the corner of Varick and Canal Streets, is located in a historic district noted for its cast-iron architecture and as a home to artists, galleries, avant-garde dance companies, and performance artists. Although originally associated with the arts, this SoHo neighborhood on the border of TriBeCa has since become famous for both retail shopping and its proximity to downtown Manhattan, the financial capital of the world. It has become an archetypal example of inner-city regeneration and gentrification encompassing socio-economic, cultural, political and architectural developments.
The Center, a contemporary facility, encompasses more than 31,000 square feet of classrooms, conference rooms, student lounge areas, technology labs, a research branch library, a photography gallery, and an art gallery. The Manhattan Center offers course work in a variety of career-advancing undergraduate and graduate programs conveniently scheduled for adult students. Undergraduate course work is offered in business, nursing, social sciences, literature, and social work. Graduate course work is offered in social work and education, including childhood/elementary education, adolescent education, early childhood education, special education, bilingual/TESOL, communication disorders/speech language pathology, and educational administration/technology.
Students are supported by full-time academic advisers and financial aid counselors, as well as multimedia rooms and computer labs. In addition, the Manhattan Center houses a Center for Psychological Services that provides free services and field placement opportunities to Adelphi students as well as low-cost services to members of the community. The services include tutoring/literacy support, psychological and educational testing, speech therapy, and individual/group counseling.

Adelphi’s Hudson Valley Center is centrally located in Poughkeepsie, New York. The Center serves the entire Hudson Valley region and nearby counties in Connecticut. The Hudson Valley Center has embraced a tradition of quality social work education for more than 30 years. The Center’s strong academic foundation is enhanced by close working relationships with social service agencies throughout the Hudson Valley. The faculty, staff, and administration provide individualized internship planning, professional and academic advisement. Graduates of the Center’s M.S.W. program go on to work in the region’s most renowned agencies and provide an ever-expanding network of contacts for students.
The Hudson Valley program offers individuals living and working in the region an opportunity to pursue their graduate social work education in a convenient location, as either full-time or part-time students. In 2012, the Hudson Valley Center relocated to its present location in the St. Francis Hospital Medical Arts Pavilion in Poughkeepsie. With this move comes the offering of the undergraduate program of R.N. to B.S. in Nursing as well as the graduate program in Nursing Administration. The Hudson Valley Center plans to offer additional programs within the Center for Health Innovation in order to meet the needs of the healthcare community in that region. Courses are offered on weekday evenings and on Saturday. Criteria for admission, course content, and program requirements are identical to those at the Garden City campus.
