SUNY Binghamton - Dickinson Community

Dickinson Hall was an early residence hall built on SUNY Binghamton's campus. The Dickinson Hall project transformed the former 1950's dining hall into a showcase facility that can house Enrollment Management, Student Accounts and Financial Aid. This project allowed for renovation of the first and second floors of the Student Wing, which began in early 2015. Dickinson Community has since become a model for all other residence buildings and meets all modern standards of safety, functionality, and comfort.

Renovations included adding 13,000 square feet to the existing building, in which a new lobby is now located; 25,800 square feet was gutted and re-designed; a green wall was constructed to act as a biological filter; extensive landscape work was conducted; a new courtyard was added; and new mechanical, electrical and plumbing systems were installed.
