Long Island AreaBest known as "the gateway to the East End," Riverhead is the center point where Long Island's north and south forks split. The county seat of Suffolk, Riverhead is currently enjoying a boom in population, housing and area attractions. A popular tourist destination, Riverhead is a study in contrasts, offering both traditional venues that Long Island is well-known for such as vineyards and farm stands as well as fast-paced recreational activities including skydiving and car racing. A cultural hot-spot, the Long Island Blues Festival, the historic Vail-Leavitt Music Hall and the East End Arts Council all call Riverhead home. As the town grows in popularity, a host of retailers have built stores including the widely popular Tanger Outlet Center.

LIU Riverhead, located in the heart of the Pine Barrens, is within easy reach to all of the town's jewels, while retaining its rural charm with shady trees and plenty of outdoor seating. Situated on the grounds of the Eastern Campus of Suffolk County Community College (off County Road 51 Riverhead-Moriches Road), the Riverhead location offers ample parking and the use of such SCCC facilities as the cafeteria, bookstore and library. Classes are held in the Long Island University Building.
