The residence halls will open on Monday, August 19, 2013 for students participating in International Student Orientation.
We recommend that you bring a sheet, pillowcase, pillow, warm blanket, and towel with you for your first few days. Additional bedding may be purchased after your arrival.
TO LIVE ON CAMPUS: (Live in a Dormitory, Hall or Room at Binghamton University)
At Binghamton University dormitories are called on campus housing or residence halls. Undergraduate students who want to live on campus must reserve a bed in the residence halls.
If you have not yet completed the on-line housing preference form, you must do so as soon as possible at this weblink: https://sds.binghamton.edu/nsh/
Be sure you have paid your $350 enrollment deposit (or arrange to have the enrollment deposit waived) before you try to submit the on-line housing preference form. Only those undergraduates who pay their enrollment deposit are allowed to reserve a bed in the residence halls.
DO YOU NEED TO ARRANGE TO MOVE INTO YOUR ON CAMPUS HOUSING BEFORE AUGUST 19? Follow the directions at the link below:

Area Hotels and Motels:
If you will not have a car when you come to Binghamton be sure to ask about bus transportation to the Binghamton University campus. Some hotels are not on the public bus transportation line. You would then need to take a taxi to get to campus or return to your hotel. This could be very expensive.
