All students who cancel housing will be assessed a $200 cancellation charge. No housing cancellation requests will be accepted after March 9 unless a student is transferring, withdrawing, or studying abroad. Please contact the community office of your 17-18 housing to cancel.

New & Transfer Students – Spring 2017

  • Once you begin the application process you will be asked to read the housing license, review your personal details and enter at least one emergency contact.
  • You will be able to indicate whether you require break housing or would prefer our special housing options (i.e. Break housing is a great option for international students, athletes, out-of-state-students, working students and others who need to remain on campus during the four breaks when residence halls close.)
  • Freshmen will be asked to prioritize preferences among our five traditional residential communities. Transfers will be able to prioritize among our five traditional residential communities and our two apartment-style residential communities, so be sure to review the options on our website if you have not done so already.

Important Note: before you can access and sign up for housing, you must activate your Binghamton University Computer Account and e-mail account at

More information for new 2017-2018 students will be available in the spring.
