Looking for Housing?
Consider living right here on campus for convenient access to classes, student activities and a wide-array of nearby businesses, shops and community opportunities.
The Housing Registry
To assist Students, Faculty and Staff Members with finding off-campus housing, the College works with a third party vendor, The Housing Registry. The search and roommate features are only available to the SUNY Broome Community College community through the use of their College email (ending in “sunybroome.edu”). This database contains houses, apartments and rooms for rent, as well as a roommate registry. Members of the College community can also post their rooms and units rentals and sublets

Property Owners and Rental Agents
You are invited to post their vacancies free of charge on The Housing Registry at Binghamton University, which kindly makes available the off-campus housing listings to SUNY Broome.
Please be advised that this listing is offered as a service for your convenience. The College assumes no obligation, either intended or implied, to the landlord or tenant.
The College takes no responsibility for screening or approving off-campus student housing and is in no way involved in any consideration which may arise between the landlord and tenant. SUNY Broome Community College does not inspect, approve, or supervise the premises described within these external services and the College does not become party to private landlord-tenant matters.
SUNY Broome Community College students living off campus are still expected to abide and adhere to the Student Code of Conduct. They are expected to positively engage in their surrounding communities by engaging in responsible behaviors that uphold all published college policies, rules, regulations, as well as local, state and federal laws. For more information please visit the Conduct Standards and Expectations page.

Special Information for International Students
Another important step in preparing for your arrival is finding housing. We offer on-campus housing arrangements, as well as provide connections to a variety of local apartments that are convenient to the college!
During the visa interview, you may be asked about housing or where you will live while studying at SUNY Broome. We will assist you with reserving your room on campus or with finding an apartment and/or roommate(s) AFTER your visa is approved.
We do not assist BEFORE the visa is approved so we do not make connections that can not be fulfilled due to a visa denial. You should be able to explain how housing works when the Consular officer asks this question. You may need to stay in temporary housing (for example, hotel) until your housing is finalized when you arrive.
We have estimated the cost of housing in the estimated yearly cost that you had to provide for the college to issue your I-20. This estimate includes costs such as apartment, utilities, food, transportation, etc. It will vary student by student, of course, but this is a fair estimate for the average student.
When first arriving, you may need to stay in a hotel near the campus temporarily until you confirm your apartment rental if you are not able to do so before you arrive. This is not uncommon. It is best to search for hotels online that are within close proximity to SUNY Broome for your convenience. We do not recommend any hotel in particular as there are a variety of hotels in the surrounding area. Many of these are convenient by bus, car, or taxi. To assist with your search, our street address is 907 Upper Front Street, Binghamton, New York 13905.
Any international student having additional questions should contact Susan Wellington, Assistant Director of International Admissions by phone at 1-607-778-5187 or via email at firstname.lastname@example.org.
