Employee Bearcat

Here are some tips for our newest faculty and staff Bearcats!

  1.  Make myBinghamton your home page; it will help you get to know the university and important information as you begin your career as a Bearcat!
  2. Wear your green and/or Binghamton apparel on Green Day Fridays to show your school spirit. Faculty and staff receive 10% off purchases at the campus bookstore with a valid Binghamton ID!
  3. Not sure where an office is located? Download the bMobi app for an interactive university map. The app also features the campus directory, events calendar, real-time bus locations, dining menu and more!
  4. Interested in eating on campus? Consider enrolling in the Faculty/Staff Flexible Dining plan which is a prepaid debit card system to ease the dining experience. Binghamton University Dining Services (BUDS) will add 10 cents on every dollar you add to your account - a 10% boost!
  5. Sign up for SUNY Perks at Work and enjoy discounts on restaurants, car rentals, hotels, electronics and more!
  6. Get your steps in; one loop around the "brain" is equal to walking 1.3 miles! While you're at it, join the Steps to B-Healthy walking program and earn rewards for reaching the monthly goal!
  7. Stay informed of University happenings! Sign up for dateline, the daily electronic newsletter. Also, be sure to register for B-Alert to receive text messages to your mobile device for emergency communication.
  8. Need a ride? Broome County Transit provides free bus rides to faculty and staff with a valid Binghamton University ID.
  9. Take advantage of the natural scenery on campus. Check out one of the hiking trails in the 182-acre Nature Preserve and look for one of its many inhabitants including deer, beaver and fox!
  10. Binghamton is on a mission to be the healthiest campus in the country. Consider getting a FitSpace membership and apply for the Health and Wellness Incentive Reimbursement program. Or check out the free  Find your Fit classes offered approximately 5 times each semester. Faculty and staff also have complimentary access to the Recreation Center on weekdays 5:45 a.m. - 12:30 p.m., so get in a morning swim before work or jump in on a lunchtime basketball game!
