Student Life

A Million Things to Do

If you love to spark discussions, explore ideas and push boundaries, Binghamton just might be the place for you.

All Are Welcome

Residential Life

    On Campus

At Binghamton University, residential life fosters a sense of community and pride. Binghamton offers six unique living communities, each with its own culture, traditions, student government, dining hall, quad and recreational facilities, so you'll never have to go far to grab a bite to eat, play volleyball with friends or find a faculty or staff member to answer your questions.

    Off Campus

The affordability and availability of off-campus housing, coupled with free bus service, make it easy to find housing in the surrounding area. Our Off Campus College (OCC) maintains a list of housing options, facilitates connections with potential housemates and runs a legal clinic that can assist with lease reviews. The OCC also hosts a variety of community events and educational programs that help students integrate into the greater Binghamton community.

Health and Wellness

Health and wellness have been top priorities for years at Binghamton, so it's no surprise that Binghamton was named one of the healthiest colleges in the country. B-Healthy (our healthy campus initiative) supports anyone and everyone pursuing a healthy lifestyle.

City of Binghamton

A short drive from main campus, downtown Binghamton is a hub of activity. The city offers residents endless entertainment, dining and recreational options.
