Housing Information

New Student Housing process

This process is for new first-year and new transfer students who wish to live on campus for the fall 2023–spring 2024 academic year. Be sure to follow the right process, steps are slightly different for first-year and transfer students.

The online housing process consists of TWO separate parts:

  • Part 1 – registration and group formation – portal opens April 12
  • Part 2 – room selection begins in the summer

Check this web page, and your email—more information will be provided in the spring.

Returning Student Housing process has ended

If you did not sign up for housing in  the returning student process but still need housing for 23-24 please add your name to the returning student housing waitlist. Every year we have a number of students who cancel their housing because they are transferring, going on leave or studying abroad. In the past, we have been able to successfully house most of the students from the waitlist. Keep in mind you will need to be patient and the more flexible you are the more likely it is we will be able to accommodate you.

Spring 2023 Semester Room Change Request process

This process is for students who wish to make a room change for the spring 2023 semester. Visit our room change request web page for instructions.

Summer housing

Summer housing is available May 29–Aug. 12 and is only available to students who have a direct university-related summer affiliation. Although space is limited, summer housing is available for both Binghamton University students and non-Binghamton University students who are taking summer courses and/or engaging in university-sponsored programs or research which requires being on campus for the summer. For more information, visit this web page.

2023–24 Petition to be released from the University Housing Agreement 

This process is for residents who are signed up for on-campus housing for the 2023-24 academic year and will not be enrolled as Binghamton University students for the fall 2023 semester.  

Generally speaking, petitions to be released from the University Housing Agreement are denied unless they fit into one of  three categories below:

  • Not going to be enrolled as a Binghamton University student for the fall semester
  • Significant and unanticipated change in financial circumstances that occurred following room selection
  • Newly diagnosed or exacerbated medical conditions that cannot be addressed through housing accommodations

See this web page for more information.
