Returning Students

Fall housing sign-ups and room changes for 2016-17 are now closed. If you still want on-campus housing, please sign up on our waitlist. Room changes for the fall 16 semester will resume no earlier than the second week of classes. More information about the room change process will be sent at the start of the fall 16 semester.



Fall 2016 New Freshmen and Transfer Students

As of April 6, 10:00 a.m. new freshmen and transfer students will be able to apply for fall 2016 – spring 2017 housing. Please make sure enrollment deposit is paid at least 48 business hours in advance of your application.

New Students Sign Up Now

  • 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 password.binghamton.edu.
