Parent and Family Move-in Guide
Welcome to Residential Life at Binghamton!
At Binghamton, we view families as essential partners in an important relationship encompassing students, parents/guardians and the University.
Our staff is here to help your student make the most of the living and learning experience. Through this team approach, we hope to create a positive alliance that can provide your student with the optimal support system for a successful University experience within a secure and happy environment.
New students and families will be mailed a printed booklet in early August that has been designed to assist you with the move-in process as well as provide additional information we feel will benefit you while your student is living in the residence halls here at Binghamton University. Additionally, throughout the year you can find information and monthly tips on our Parents and Guardians website. The information in the booklet is also available on the following pages.
Living on campus is a unique experience which can be one of the most memorable and rewarding of your student's life. As your student transitions from home to a residence hall, remember we are here to help. Our 200+ live-in staff are available 24/7 to assist, direct or just listen. The best part about living on campus is, it's not just a place to stay, it's a place to call "home."
