East Campus Housing

In August students moved into the buildings comprising the final phase of the $375 million East Campus Housing project. The new Dickinson residential halls were built in a mini-suite style, with single and double bedrooms which share two private bath. Each building also has a great room, kitchen, study lounges, recreational lounges, game rooms, laundry room and hall offices for staff. Basketball and volleyball courts and co-rec fields are some of the outdoor amenities provided by the project.

East Campus Housing construction began 2008, with the construction of Bingham Hall in the Newing College community. The completed project, which includes nine residential halls and a collegiate center shared by both Newing College and Dickinson Community, is the largest in Binghamton University history. It’s estimated the project had an economic impact of over $580 million for Broome and Tioga counties and nearly $775 million on the state economy. The project helped support more than 6,400 jobs at both the local and state level.
