Room and Board
The weighted average for room and board and other expenses is generated as follows:
(amount for on-campus room, board and other expenses * # of students living on-campus.
+ amount for off-campus (with family) room, board and other expenses * # of students living off-campus with family
+ amount for off-campus (not with family) room, board and other expenses * # of students living off-campus not with family)
divided by the total # of students. Students whose living arrangements are unknown are excluded from the calculation. For some institutions the # of students by living arrangement will be known, but dollar amounts will not be known. In this case the # of students with no corresponding dollar amount will be excluded from the denominator.

An intense school where people work hard and party harder. Very easy to fall through the cracks if you don't keep up with your work. A diverse and extremely accepting environment for all.
Louis from Brooklyn, NY
Binghamton University is the perfect school. They offer a wide range of majors and sports/clubs, a diverse student body, career planning and development, and so much more. You really need to visit to see what I mean.
Lauren from Staten Island, NY
The campus looks beautiful but it can be a lie! The winter here can be pretty gloomy but the fall and spring time is amazing. The popular things to study are engineering, business, and nursing.

Nick from Delmar, NY
Binghamton lives up to its prestigious reputation. Attending Binghamton, you get the chance to experience a small community within a large school thanks to the various dorm communities on campus. Best four years of my life.
Binghamton University has been a very academic, challenging and exceptional institution for my higher education experience. I have gotten involved with many different clubs, theater, sorority, community service and continue to maintain over a 3.5 GPA. The education and experience here has been superior and the financial cost is more manageable than a private institution.
