Binghamton University Student Life

If you think there’s lots to do for class, wait until you see what else campus has to offer.

With the Division of Student Affairs overseeing the day-to-day needs of the student body, our friendly staff works hard to ensure your happiness, fulfillment and future success. Offices such as Residential Life, Campus Recreation, International Student and Scholar Services and the Career Development Center are all dedicated to making your time at Binghamton the very best it can be.

Our 160 amazingly diverse student clubs and organizations are the engine of student life at Binghamton. They sponsor international cultural events and concerts, publish campus newspapers and magazines, offer countless volunteer opportunities and organize tons of free movies, open-mic nights and campus-wide talent shows.

Get in the game with our incredible intramural and club sports program. Choose from highly competitive or just-for-fun leagues in everything from bowling and floor hockey to rugby and racquetball. Take a spinning class, perfect your swimming stroke or grab 10 friends and join the BU Zoo student fan club for a men’s or women’s Division I basketball game.

However you decide to get involved, we want you to love Binghamton as much as we do.

Visit the campus and find out for yourself why Binghamton’s freshmen retention rate — between 91 and 93 percent over the past 10 years — is one of the highest in the country, and why the city of Binghamton was voted by Country Home magazine as one of America’s Top Ten “Best Green Places” in 2007. (Here’s a hint: it has nothing to do with the school colors.)
