Virtual Family Orientation 

Virtual Family Orientation offers families of newly admitted students the opportunity to engage with Binghamton University’s campus and understand the many resources available for our students. Students can register their family members for Virtual Family Orientation when they register for their own session on the "Family Orientation" tab in VZOrientation. 


Upon registration, families will gain access to our exclusive Online Family Orientation Portal and will participate in one of the Live Family Orientation Sessions outlined below. For more information and program details, please visit the Spring Orientation for Families page.


Virtual Family Orientation Session Option:

Friday, October 15th from 6:30pm-8:30pm via Zoom Webinar. 

This option is SEPARATE from your student’s Orientation session if they are attending on Zoom. During this online session, families will hear from Parent and Family Programs, current Binghamton University students, Residential Life and Housing, and Financial Services. Attendees can ask questions in real time and the session will be recorded for those who miss it or need to come late/leave early.

In-Person Family Orientation Session Option:

Saturday, October 16th from 10:30am-3:30pm. Details will be emailed to those registered.

This option is CONCURRENT to your student’s Orientation session if they are attending in-person. During this in-person session, families will meet with and hear from Parent and Family Programs, current Binghamton University students, Residential Life and Housing, Financial Services, and have the opportunity to participate in campus tours. Attendees will be able to see campus and connect in-person with staff and students. Please note that offices will not be open for walk-ins as this session takes place during a weekend day.
