Town of Dickinson, NY (WBNG Binghamton) SUNY Broome officials say construction is on track for its residential housing.

The multimillion dollar project is both on budget and on time for 335 new living spaces for students.

SUNY Broome President Dr. Kevin Drumm says moving from a commuter community college to a residential one means big opportunities for the campus. It also blurs the line between SUNY Broome and a four-year school.

"I've heard a lot of friendly complaints during my three years here from parents who wanted their kids to attend here, but in the end they wanted the resident hall experience so they're going somewhere else. That's not an excuse anymore," Drumm said.

The residents halls are scheduled to be completed by August of 2014.
