The University's main campus in Vestal is spread over 930 acres on a wooded hillside above the Susquehanna River. Our modern, well-maintained facilities include the five-building science complex with a multiclimate greenhouse, the 1,200-seat Anderson Center for the Performing Arts, the University Libraries, the University Art Museum, the University Union and the Nature Preserve, a 190-acre forest and wetland area.
Our extensive athletics facilities include the 156,000-square-foot multipurpose Events Center, which is home to the Binghamton Bearcats basketball team, as well as indoor track and tennis teams. The Bearcats Sports Complex—a 120' x 75' synthetic turf field—is home to our soccer and lacrosse teams.
Campus Recreational Services, part of our Division of Student Affairs, operates two large gymnasiums; swimming pools; an indoor track; and basketball, volleyball and racquetball courts. FitSpace, a state-of-the-art fitness facility, is available to the entire campus community. Outdoor facilities include 26 tennis courts, a fitness trail, a 400-meter track and soccer field, and numerous playing fields.
Innovative Technologies Complex
The Innovative Technologies Complex is located next to the main Vestal campus, across Murray Hill Road. It encompasses the following three buildings:
- Biotechnology Research: This 37,000-square-foot facility fosters multidisciplinary research in biomedicine, bioengineering and biotechnology and features state-of-the-art, flexible laboratories and clinical space, as well as a Start-Up Suite for new companies.
- Engineering and Science: This 125,000 square-foot facility opened in fall 2011 to provide much-needed additional academic, research and administrative space for the Watson School of Engineering and Applied Science.
- Center of Excellence: Under construction is a 114,000-square-foot facility that will provide space for expansion and consolidation of the University's Center of Excellence in Small Scale Systems Integration and Packaging (S3IP); construction began in fall 2010 and will be completed in spring 2013.
University Downtown Center
Located in Downtown Binghamton, the University Downtown Center opened in August 2007 when the College of Community and Public Affairs took residence in the four-story, 74,400-square-foot facility. The center's location puts faculty, staff and students close to many of the community agencies and organizations with which they regularly collaborate, integrating University activities within the community and enhancing opportunities for research and education.
