Working together works
Learn close to clients and agencies
Binghamton University's College of Community and Public Affairs is located in the University Downtown Center, which opened in August 2007. The $29 million, four-story, 74,400-square-foot facility features state-of-the-art classrooms, an Information Commons with computer workstations, work and conference areas, office space, a coffee kiosk and a student lounge. The building includes a three-story atrium with a view of the Chenango and Susquehanna rivers and offers wireless Internet access.
The center's location in downtown Binghamton puts faculty, staff and students close to many of the community agencies and organizations with which they regularly collaborate. This integration of University activities within the community puts students and faculty in proximity to community groups they can learn from and assist, enhancing opportunities for research and education.
