Baird Point


Baird Point is one of UB's most iconic and unexpected sights-an outdoor, Greek-style amphitheater overlooking Lake LaSalle. With this backdrop, Baird Point is an attractive staging area for the Student Association's annual Springfest and Fallfest celebrations. Its historic marble columns were once part of the old Federal Reserve Bank in downtown Buffalo.

Lake LaSalle, a 60-acre manmade lake at the edge of the campus, is a popular spot for watching wild ducks, herons and geese. Built in 1970 to provide flood control and water runoff, it has an average depth of 10 feet; maximum depth is 25 feet.
