Housing information

All Dual-Diploma students may choose to live on campus or off campus.

Living On Campus:

Binghamton University's Residential Life Office makes all the necessary arrangements with the Dual-Diploma Programs office to make sure that all Dual-Diploma students housed based on their housing requests and availabilities in the residential communities.

Detailed information about Binghamton University's dorms, housing assignments, and housing policies will be included in our Fall and Spring orientation sessions in Turkey.

If students want to live on campus, they have to complete the online housing assignment form and send their request to the Residential Life Office before the deadline. Deadline for housing assignment process changes every year and the updated deadline will be provided during the pre-departure orientation session in Turkey in Spring semester.

Before signing a written lease, READ IT CAREFULLY!!

Several options for looking for off-campus housing are as follows:
  1. Local Area Housing Database
  2. OCC Housemate / Subletter List (This list is comprised of current Binghamton University students who have rented an apartment or house and are in need of a subletter or housemate to fill a vacancy which exists in their rental unit. Therefore, if you want to live by yourself, please go for option 1 and option 3.)

  1. If you live off campus and decide not to drive, you may take either the school bus (OCCT) or city bus (BC Transit) to school or to go shopping. Both are free with your BU student I.D. Please visit here for OCCT schedules and stops and here for BC Transit schedules and stops.
  2. If you don't plan to drive, before choosing where to live, remember to ask the landlord whether the property is on bus line or not. If it's on bus line, find out how long it takes to walk from the house to the nearest bus stop, and how long it takes to get to Binghamton University. During the Winter, walking in cold for 10 minutes might feel like forever!
  3. Heat can be expensive; therefore, when you look for housing, try to find one that includes heat in the utility. 
  4. If the house is furnished, it means the landlord will provide furniture.
  5. Read Tips on Finding an Apartment (provided by the SUNY Broome). Very useful tips! You will find lots of information on where to buy household items, how to get internet, phone services, and so on.
