Spring '15 new student and transfer housing applications

Housing applications will go live 10 a.m. Wednesday, Dec. 10 for those who were admitted to Binghamton but not attending until January!

Signing up is easy:

  • Once you begin the application process for spring 2015 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.)
  • You will be asked to prioritize preferences among our five traditional and 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
