As a new international student at Binghamton University, you are expected to arrive at Binghamton University by Thursday, August 15, 2013, the first day of International Student Orientation for new graduate students. (Wednesday, August 14, 2013, for graduate exchange students). It is recommended that graduate exchange students arrive to Binghamton by Monday, August 12, 2013. (Waiting for confirmation of date for exchange students from Sue Lewis.)
We recommend that you bring a sheet, pillowcase, pillow, warm blanket, and towel with you for your first few days. Additional bedding may be purchased after your arrival.
If you are planning to live off campus, we advise you to arrive prior to August 15, (August 14, for exchange students) in order to locate housing. You need to locate your own housing off campus. Binghamton University does not have housing for graduate students.
