Kean University is in a great location -- metropolitan Union County. The campus is a short distance from Newark Liberty International Airport, NJ Transit trains and major highways.

We are easily accessible from the Garden State Parkway, NJ Turnpike and Routes 1&9, 22 and 78. No wonder so many students choose to commute to Kean.

Park your car and enter the 150-acre campus dotted with woods, streams and open space, an ideal environment for learning and living. But the classroom does not end at the edge of the campus. Kean's faculty takes full advantage of the University's proximity to the New York/New Jersey's metropolitan area with its wealth of cultural and intellectual activities.
