The Premier Public University

The best public university in the Northeast

A world-class institution, Binghamton University offers students a broad, interdisciplinary education with an international perspective and one of the most vibrant research programs in the nation.

Who We Are

At Binghamton, we believe that a 21st century college education requires a deep engagement with the world. Our vision is to design a distinctly global educational experience and foster an inclusive campus community that infuses all aspects of college life with an international perspective.

That vision is reality at Binghamton. The University has been recognized with seven national awards for innovation in international education. Our pioneering Languages Across the Curriculum (LxC) program provides study groups in as many as four or five languages for a single class!

Students from more than 100 countries choose Binghamton because they know it's one of few American universities that emphasize meaningful cultural and intellectual exchange.
