I-to-I and VIP occupy five buildings on the southernmost part of NYIT's Central Islip campus, which is a community model that houses a BOCES nursing program and Touro Law School, as well as other community-oriented organizations. The site is the center of a burgeoning area that includes a federal and state court complex, a new industrial park, several new condominium developments, and a growing local business community.
