Computer Accounts

All Binghamton University students, faculty and staff are given a computer account and a University e-mail address (ex. user ID@binghamton.edu).  

Students are assigned a computer account automatically when they apply to Binghamton University. When a student accepts admission and pays their deposit (or the deposit is waived) they are given a Binghamton University e-mail account. 

The Human Resources Department will request computer and e-mail accounts for most new faculty and staff during the hiring process. New faculty and staff can also request a computer and e-mail account in person at the ITS Help Desk by presenting a valid University ID card.  

Each new student, faculty and staff will receive:

  • E-mail Address - BMail is Binghamton University's official e-mail service and is powered by Google. This account also gives access to the Calendar, Drive, Sites, and Groups applications within Google Apps.

  • Computer Account - Your Binghamton computer account allows access to the wireless campus network, Blackboard, my.binghamton portal, Banner Self Service, printing in public computer labs, SUNY Employee Services Portal, and other third party applications. It also allows access to our Bingsuns UNIX server which can be used for academic work and personal web pages

Students, faculty, staff,  or any other authorized users who have computer accounts at Binghamton University are expected to abide by the Binghamton University Computer and Network Usage Policy.  When setting up your computer account passwords you accept and agree to the Computer and Network Usage Policy.
