Undergraduate exchange students are entitled to on-campus housing, providing they apply in a timely manner. Graduate exchange students may now apply for on-campus housing as well, which will be assigned on a space-available basis. The Office of International Education and Global Initiatives will send admitted students information about the housing sign-up process and dates.
Information about the types and costs of on-campus housing can be found on the Residential Life website at http://www.binghamton.edu/residential-life/.
Students may also choose to live off campus. Most graduate students live off campus. Undergraduates may also choose to live off campus, if they prefer, although on-campus living is a big part of the undergraduate experience at Binghamton. Cost of room and board off campus varies considerably according to the type of accommodations and personal eating habits.
