There are three other main locations: the Fort Lauderdale East Campus, the North Miami Beach Campus, and the Halmos College of Natural Sciences and Oceanography in Hollywood (mailing address Dania Beach).

The Halmos College of Natural Sciences and Oceanography is only 12 miles from the Main Campus and is nestled at the end of John U. Lloyd State Park directly on the entrance channel of Port Everglades and within one hundred meters of the open Atlantic Ocean.

The Center's faculty and staff are academics, professors, researchers, and teacher/mentors for their students. Their work is published in the peer-reviewed literature. Much research is extramurally funded through grants, cooperative agreements, contracts, and awards from federal, state, and local governments, from NGO's, and from private organizations and foundations.

Regions of interest include not only Florida's coastal waters and the continental shelf/slope waters of the southeastern United States, but also the waters of the Caribbean Sea, the Gulf of Mexico, and the Antarctic, Atlantic, Indian, and Pacific Oceans.
