Summer Housing

Summer housing is available May 29–Aug. 12

Summer housing 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.

  • Term 1 housing dates: May 29–July 4 
  • Term 2 housing dates: July 9–August 12 
  • Full summer housing dates: May 29–August 12

The above dates are firm and requests for early-arrivals or late-stays cannot be accommodated.

Students can apply for Term 1 only, Term 2 only or the full summer. Summer housing is not available on a weekly basis.

All summer housing is in the Apartments Community. Students living in summer housing will be assigned by Residential Life and should expect to share an apartment with other summer residents.

Housing type

Binghamton University recognizes that same-sex room assignments are not ideal or appropriate for all students. Therefore, we offer two types of housing: gendered housing and gender inclusive housing (defined below). Gender Inclusive Housing (GIH) seeks to provide an environment that is welcoming to all gender identities and is not limited to the binary (male and female). 

When completing the housing application, all students are required to select the type of housing they would like to reside in. 

Gendered Housing: Students who choose to live with a roommate as well as suite/flat/ apartment mates who have the same legal sex of record with the University. This includes: male (m), female (f), nonbinary (x).

Gender Inclusive Housing (GIH): Students who choose to live with a roommate as well as suite/flat/apartment mates of any gender identity. Students who select Gender Inclusive Housing agree to live with and create a welcoming environment for students of any gender identity. This includes but is not limited to: man, woman, trans, nonbinary and genderqueer/gender non-conforming. 


The summer housing rate is:

  • Term1: $1332
  • Term 2: $1258
  • Full summer: $2775

Binghamton University students will be billed by Student Accounts via their student account. 

Non-Binghamton University students will be billed directly in a single invoice.

Housing costs for individuals whose housing is covered by a research or other program will be billed directly to the program.

Residential Life cannot arrange for payment plans, alter billing cycles, etc. 

Housing agreement

All students (Binghamton and non-Binghamton) residing on campus during the summer must agree to the 2022–23 University Housing Agreement and Student Code of Conduct.

Binghamton University students who violate these policies may be subject to loss of summer housing and/or student conduct action. Non-Binghamton University students may be subject to loss of housing as well as notification to the sponsoring organization. The Dean of Students/Vice President of Student Affairs of the student’s home campus will also be notified.

Binghamton University is a smoke- and tobacco-free campus both indoors and outdoors. See University policies for more information.

Apartment-style living

Apartment style living is an independent-living experience in which students are self-sufficient with respect to cooking, cleaning, etc.

Our apartments are fully furnished and offer single bedrooms with a shared living room, bathroom and kitchen. Kitchens contain a full-sized refrigerator, stove/oven, sink and cabinets. Students provide their own microwave if they want one. Automatic dishwashers are not permitted. 

While the apartments are furnished, students do need to provide their own bedding, cooking items (pots, pans, plates/utensils, etc.) as well as paper towels, toilet paper, garbage bags and cleaning products. See our What to Bring guide for more details.

Most apartments do not have air conditioning. Students are welcome to bring fans but air conditioners are not permitted.


Laundry room locations are different for each building but are generally on the ground floor. You may need card access. Laundry facilities are free but residents need to bring their own detergent.
