At Binghamton, our residential communities help students connect with friends and have fun while learning. Whether it's waking up to co-rec football on Saturday or joining friends for a study group in the lounge, our students make connections in all of our halls! Each of our six residential communities has their own personality:
College-in-the-Woods, referred to as CIW, is made up of 5 buildings housing 240-340 residents and offering both suite style and traditional corridor style living. Special CIW features include: classrooms in the community and tutorial services through the Center of Academic Excellence.
