Dining Hauls: A Tour of Binghamton’s Delicious Dining Options

There are many great dining options at Binghamton University. For example, each residential community houses their own dining hall. Binghamton University graduate Madeline Loiaconi ‘23 spent her senior year checking out every residential dining hall on campus for a new series she developed, “Dining Hauls.” In this series, she gave Binghamton University TikTok and Instagram viewers thorough tours of each location. She explores the dining stations themselves, as well as the seating and surrounding resources in and around each building. Check these out to get to a taste of each dining hall!

Chenango Champlain Collegiate Center

@binghamtonu Which Dining Hall would you like to see next? #binghamton #binghamtonuniversity #dininghalls #dininghall #college #university ♬ Sunday - HNNY

Chenango Champlain Collegiate Center (C4) is the connecting piece of Newing and Dickinson communities. The delicious food is located on the ground floor. The video puts a spotlight on the Simple Servings station, as well as Kosher Korner. Outside of food, the hall has so much to offer. The first floor and outdoor seating are great places to be, whether you’re eating or studying.

Hinman Dining Hall

@binghamtonu Replying to @whatsgoodadam Did you know that Binghamton offers six unique living communities, each with its own dining hall? In this new series, Dining Hauls, we explore them all and today we are checking out Hinman Dining Hall! #binghamton #binghamtonuniversity #dininghalls #dininghall #college #university #food ♬ Jazz Bossa Nova - TOKYO Lonesome Blue

Hinman Dining Hall is a spacious, three-story building with outdoor rooftop seating. Madeline’s (as well as many other students’) favorite food spot, Garbanzo, is located here. Grab some friends and explore the various food and seating options!

Collge-in-the-Woods Dining Hall

@binghamtonu What’s your favorite station at College in the Woods? #binghamtonuniversity #binghamton #dininghalls #dininghall #college #university #food ♬ Yacht Club - MusicBox

College-in-the-Woods (CIW) Dining Hall is a quaint building filled with diverse food choices. It’s the closest dining hall to the main campus, so this is your go-to for that snack in between classes. The video highlights the Bearcat Creamery.

Appalachian Dining Hall

@binghamtonu That’s a wrap on the Dining Haul series! Which Dining Hall do you call home at Binghamton University? #binghamtonuniversity #binghamton #dininghalls #dininghall #college #university ♬ Spongebob Ukulele - Unay

The staple of the Mountainview Community, “App”, has lots of great food to offer, like mozzarella sticks and elite pasta. It offers a beautiful view, whether you sit indoors or outdoors, as the video shows. Like C4, Appalachian Dining Hall is open until 1 a.m. on weekdays for Nite Owl.

For a more in-depth look at the Binghamton University dining experience, as well as the campus as a whole, check out the above video. It touches on the diversity of our food, as well as some food stations in the MarketPlace.
