North Campus: Suburban Academic Center

UB's North Campus, where most of the university's core academic programs are offered, is located in suburban Amherst. Opened in the early 1970s, it is the largest of our three campuses. Its 125 buildings include state-of-the-art academic and research spaces, student dormitories and apartments, the Student Union, athletics venues and the university’s administrative offices. Complementing the built environment are abundant green spaces, Lake LaSalle and Letchworth Woods.

South Campus: Classic Neighborhood Setting

UB’s South Campus on Main Street in North Buffalo is a Western New York landmark that dates back to the 1920s. Located in a residential neighborhood in North Buffalo, it is home to classic ivy-covered buildings, as well as dormitories and cutting-edge research and teaching facilities. The schools of Architecture and Planning, Medicine and Biomedical Sciences, Dental Medicine, Public Health and Health Professions, and Nursing are on the South Campus.

Downtown Campus: Growing Urban Presence

UB is creating a state-of-the-art center for teaching, research and clinical care in downtown Buffalo, sparking a revitalization of New York State’s second-largest city.

With funding from the Governor’s NYSUNY 2020 Challenge Grant program and other sources, including private philanthropy, UB plans to relocate the School of Medicine and Biomedical Sciences in downtown Buffalo. The move will align UB medical education, research, and clinical care more effectively with regional hospitals and research partners.

Most of our Downtown Campus buildings are located on or near the Buffalo Niagara Medical Campus. They include the New York State Center of Excellence in Bioinformatics and Life Sciences and the 10-story Clinical and Translational Research Center (CTRC)—built in partnership with Kaleida Health, the region’s largest hospital network—which also houses a UB Biosciences Incubator. In addition, UB built a new home for its Educational Opportunity Center, connected to the UB Downtown Gateway building, which houses university outreach programs. | Learn More
