Welcome to the Community!

The small-college atmosphere at a larger university!

Why be "just a number" when you can be a part of a thriving community? While living on campus at Binghamton you'll feel that you're at a small college while enjoying the resources of a first-rate university. Our residence halls offer interactive communities with over 2,000 programs each year!

Living and learning

Debates, movie reviews, and field trips — just a few of the ways we make learning fun! Our students are supported in their academic and personal growth by a tenured Faculty Master, dedicated professional staff, and Resident Assistants. Our goal is to provide academic guidance and add to your educational experience, while maintaining and enhancing a real sense of community on campus. We want you to feel at home and our staff will work with you to help you connect with all we have to offer!

Focus On — Faculty Masters

George Catalano, Faculty Master of the Apartment Communities

George D. Catalano

Apartment Communities

Each faculty master has been tasked with developing a "Big Idea" — a theme they're focusing on with their communities for the next three years.

Catalano's "Big Idea" resonates closely with his residents and himself — a community of peace.  "I see three aspects to this," he explains. "Being at peace with yourself, being at peace with others and being at peace with the planet." 

"My impression, after talking to several students, is that they're really searching for a way to give back. They want to make a difference, but with their schedules it's hard for them to come up with ways to do that. I think my role as Master will be shepherding them in this."
