4. Arranging Your Housing:
Graduate students need to arrange their own housing.
There is no on-campus housing for graduate students. We advise you to arrive prior to January 22 (January 21 for exchange students) in order to locate housing. You need to locate your own housing off campus. Binghamton University does not have housing for graduate students.

Many of you will need to depend on public transportation to travel to campus and return home. Be sure the apartment you are considering is near the bus routes that serve Binghamton University campus.
