Welcome to the neighborhood
At Binghamton, the excitement starts where you live. Over 90 percent of freshmen and half of all undergraduates live on campus in one of our distinctive residential communities — clusters of residence halls, dining facilities, lounges and study rooms because of the close-knit neighborhood feel and unique learning opportunities.
That neighborhood feel comes from you and your “neighbors.” You organize your own activities, like charitable fundraisers, movie nights, BBQs and dances. And by living together throughout your college career, you’ll forge tight friendships among classmates with wildly diverse backgrounds, talents and interests.
You’ll not only live and eat with your friends, but you have the opportunity to take special classes together that meet right in your community. Big test tomorrow? Grab your roommates for an instant study group.
Our innovative learning communities take the “living/learning” concept even further, building immersive, beyond-the-classroom programs around themes like pre-health, community service and globalization.

Imagine walking into your community dining hall and choosing from healthy, fresh international cuisine like vegetable samosas with yogurt sauce, pesto shrimp Sicilian pizza or Bermuda fish chowder.
Forget about searching the couch for quarters. Paying for food is as easy as swiping your Binghamton University ID card. Our dining facilities open early and close late. We’ll even deliver snacks to your door until 1 a.m., although we encourage you to think twice about that late night wing fest.
