Arriving at Binghamton
To Live Off Campus


As a new international student at Binghamton University, you are expected to arrive at Binghamton University by Wednesday, January 23, 2013, the program start date on your SEVIS I-20 or DS-2019 (Tuesday, January 22, 2013 for exchange students).

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 January 23 (January 22 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.

Many of you will need to depend on public transportation to travel to campus and return home. Be sure the apartment you are considering is near the bus routes that serve Binghamton University campus.

The following resources will be able to provide you with information:
