Stony Brook University is closing most programs and will no longer accept students as undergraduates at its 82-acre campus in Southampton, N.Y.

The university announced the cuts Wednesday in a statement, saying it was forced to ``streamline operations'' because of a loss of nearly $55 million in state funds over the past two years.

Besides the program cuts at Southampton, the school said it would stop offering students housing at the campus and close one of its Manhattan spaces.

Current Southampton students will be allowed to enroll at the main campus about 45 miles away.

Stony Brook University President Samuel L. Stanley says the cuts are intended to keep the school focused on the ``core elements'' of
 its missions of research and teaching.
