At Binghamton, our residential communities help students connect with friends and have fun while learning. Whether it's joining co-rec football on Saturday or meeting friends for a study group in the lounge, you'll make connections in any of our halls. Students choose from six residential communities, each with its own traditions, style and personality.
College-in-the-Woods (CIW) is centrally located across from The Union and yes, we do have lots of trees! Our five buildings offer both suite-style and corridor-style living. CIW traditions range from Woodstock and Casino-in-the-Woods in the spring to Woods Olympics and CIW Family Weekend in the fall.
Dickinson Community has five buildings including the all-freshmen Health and Wellness Community at Old Digman. We share the largest dining hall on campus and Student Success Center in C4. We're home to DiRT (Dickinson Research Team), a large student government and one of the first traditions of spring — Mutant Mania!
Mountainview offers both suite-style and designed-triple corridor rooms in four buildings across from our Nature Preserve with the best view on campus. We celebrate the crossing of our salamanders in the spring with Salamander Days and have the STEAM Room, a makerspace where students can hang out, collaborate on projects and make art.
Newing has four corridor-style buildings up the hill from our East Gym. We are the home of the Binghamton University Scholars Program and COIN. Our residents have access to the biggest dining hall on campus, the C4 Student Success Center and we host the hugely popular Newing Navy tradition in the spring.
Want a single? Upperclassmen and transfers have the option of living in our Apartments Community, consisting of Hillside and Susquehanna. These buildings offer single bedrooms and full kitchens within 2, 4 and 6-room apartments. Residents socialize in Hillside Commons and the Susquehanna Coffee House, and have many networking events every semester.
