Am I still able to order cold and flu kits, safer-sex supplies and menstrual care products online?

Due to recent changes on campus in response to the COVID-19 outbreak, we are not able to fill online orders at this time.

As an alternative, we ask that you visit one of the kiosks around campus for safer-sex supplies and menstrual care products:

  • Health Promotion and Prevention Services
    Third floor of Old O'Connor. Kiosk is next to the elevator.
  • Decker Student Health Services Center
    Kiosk is at the left back corner of the reception desk.
  • REACH Office
    Basement of Decker Student Health Services Center (take the staircase on the outside right side of the building all the way down to the bottom). Kiosk is on the left wall upon entry.

Email us at hpps@binghamton.edu if you are not able to obtain any supplies.

If I have been a victim of interpersonal violence and need some assistance, where can I go off campus?
