At Binghamton University, the entire campus is committed to sustainability. You’ll find evidence of this across campus, and it goes beyond plentiful recycling bins and organic food on dining hall menus. It’s a broad network of programs, projects and initiatives that encompass every facet of the University and affect every member of the campus community — from students in our residence halls to our maintenance crews.

Binghamton’s sustainability efforts range from an energy-management system to extensive recycling efforts that include organic gardening and composting. Other initiatives include a variety of energy-savings projects, LEED building standards and educational efforts that include a residential community energy contest as well as regular programs and events that engage and educate the campus community in thinking about and changing energy habits. We even offer a minor in sustainability engineering through our Thomas J. Watson School of Engineering and Applied Science.
