If you have any questions about the information below, email us at occ@binghamton.edu and we will respond to you as soon as possible.

Off-campus student PPE distribution

Off-campus students may continue to pick up PPE if they have not done so already. All students will receive two cloth face coverings, a personal bottle of hand sanitizer and a microfiber cleaning cloth. Off-campus students can log in to B-Engaged and register for a distribution time and location. Students may only pick up PPE at their registered time and location.

Legal clinic

Our legal partners who operate the campus legal clinic have agreed to continue to assist students through email. Be prepared to share all relevant documents to your case so they can provide the best advice possible.

Binghamton University Food Pantry

To lessen the risk of exposure and ensure the safety of students and the staff, the Food Pantry now uses an online ordering process. Students can place an order once a week and pick up their pre-bagged items at the Food Pantry in the Iroquois Commons/CIW Dining Hall, first level (just above the steps leading down to the dining hall). 

For more information, visit the Food Pantry's web page, Facebook and Instagram. If you have questions, email the pantry at bpantry@binghamton.edu.

Groceries and prescriptions

Here you will find a chart with grocery stores and pharmacies based on your housing zone. We have also provided the Broome County Transit (BCT) bus you would take to reach this destination.

We have linked to each specific grocery store and pharmacy so you can check their hours and see if they potentially offer delivery service.

All Binghamton University students are also eligible to use the Binghamton University Food Pantry. We have provided the bus route you would use from your zone to reach campus.

Visions Federal Credit Union

Visions Federal Credit Union is available for your banking needs. The on-campus branch is closed until further notice. However, the four on-campus ATMs are still operational and neighboring branches at the Town Square Mall and University Center Plaza are open for use. You can also reach a representative by calling (800)242-2120 with any questions.

Students who plan to vote in the June 23 primary elections and are currently registered to vote in Broome County but will be unable to vote in person in Broome County on Election Day have some options to cast their ballot. They can either request an absentee ballot to be sent to their home address or update their voter registration address so that they can vote in person at home. Governor Cuomo has also issued an executive order allowing all N.Y. voters to vote via absentee ballot due to COVID-19. Voters should select "temporary illness" as the reason they are requesting an absentee ballot. Visit the Center for Civic Engagement’s voter engagement page for relevant forms and deadlines, and contact the CCE or your local Board of Elections for additional assistance.

The CCE is closely monitoring news from the governor's office and the Board of Elections that may impact voting in the presidential primary. Future updates will be located on the CCE website if more information becomes available.
