About

History

Binghamton University opened its doors as Triple Cities College in 1946 to serve the needs of local veterans returning from service in World War II. Originally located in Endicott, N.Y., five miles west of the present campus, the fledgling school was a branch of Syracuse University.

Education

A world-class institution, Binghamton University offers students a broad, interdisciplinary education with an international perspective and one of the most vibrant research programs in the nation.

Research

Research at Binghamton University is conducted in multiple venues. Some faculty members are primarily affiliated with their departments and conduct research that originates from questions in a particular discipline. However, the interdisciplinary nature of some of today's most pressing questions frequently requires expertise from several areas and/or departments. Often these cross-disciplinary connections develop into permanent working relationships.

All residence hall doors are locked on a 24-hour basis, requiring key-card access.
