There are three major international airports in the New Jersey New York metropolitan area. The closest one to Monmouth is Newark Liberty International Airport, which is approximately 45 minutes north of campus. The two other major airports are John F. Kennedy International Airport and LaGuardia International Airport. Both are located in New York City.
We recommend, when possible, Newark Liberty Airport, because of its proximity to Monmouth University (44 miles, 71 kilometers). Newark Liberty also has a monorail system (AirTrain), which will take you directly to the train that goes to Long Branch, New Jersey, the town next to Monmouth University. The train station in Long Branch is about three miles (five kilometers) from the University. Taxis from the Long Branch train station to Monmouth University are readily available.
If you choose to take a limousine from any of the three airports, please contact Barbara Nitzberg, International Student Assistant Director, at firstname.lastname@example.org for more information.
