Summer Housing

Summer housing is available May 27-Aug 10

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 27-July 2
  • Term 2 housing dates: July 7-August 10
  • Full summer housing dates: May 27-August 10 

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

When completing the housing application, all students are required to select their housing type. 

Housing Type 1: Housing based on Gender Identity

  • Students who choose this housing type live with others who share the same gender identity. 

Information regarding gender identity and how to enter your gender identity with the University is available on the Student Records website

Housing Type 2: Gender Inclusive Housing

  • Students who choose this housing type live with others who may or may not share the same gender identity, with the intention of creating a welcoming environment for all. 
  • Students who select Gender Inclusive Housing agree to the Gender Inclusive Housing agreement indicating their desire to live with a direct roommate of any gender identity. Students who do not wish to live with others of every gender should select Housing Type 1. 


The Summer housing rates are:

  • Term1: $1,470
  • Term 2: $1,470
  • Full Summer: $3,234

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

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 2023-24 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.

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 (less than 1,000 watts) 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.
