Director of Residential Life
Budget Title: Director of Residential Life (SL-5)

Salary: Commensurate with experience

Binghamton University's Residential Life program serves the needs of approximately 7,400 students through a system of five residential colleges and two apartment-style communities.

We provide a "small school" residential experience within a premier public university. Binghamton's collegiate residential system is patterned after a visionary plan developed in England, often called the "Oxford Model," adopted in the 1960's. It is an organizational model that combines academic opportunities for learning within a community living environment.

Our dedicated staff and faculty engage with students to build strong communities that empower personal development and academic success. Our residents share experiences, history and traditions while developing lasting friendships, strong bonds and a community culture that sustain them through graduation and beyond. Binghamton alumni more often cite their residential community as their primary affiliation with the university than their school, college or major.

Distinctive characteristics of residential life at Binghamton include all, but are not limited to, the following:

Faculty Engagement: Providing students with a living, learning environment is an integral part of the academic mission of Binghamton University. Operating within the Oxford collegiate model, the Residential Life staff includes Collegiate Professors (CPs) who actively recruit other faculty and staff Fellows to become involved in the day-to-day lives of students. Each community has its own CP who helps to create a distinct community identity through their individual programs and initiatives.

Student Engagement: Binghamton's residential communities have a strong culture of student shared governance. Each community has its own governing council and each building its own representatives to the council. These collegiate councils engage with the residential life staff and CP to support all manner of community programming and to participate in community level decision-making.

Traditions: There are long-standing traditions distinct to each community that connect alumni and current students through their residential experience.

Partnerships: Binghamton's residential life program draws upon meaningful and ongoing partnerships with academic and programmatic areas to an extraordinary extent. In addition to the CPs and Fellows, Residential Life relies upon partnerships with our graduate program in social work, the Fleishman Center for Career and Professional Development and the Division of Diversity Equity and Inclusion (DDEI). All of these programs embed graduate students and/or staff within residential life to provide specialized services to residential students.
