Wende Hall


After a major renovation in 2008-09, Wende Hall is now home to UB's School of Nursing with expanded state-of-the-art classrooms, research center, and specialized laboratories to accommodate a growing student population.

One of the original buildings on the site that would become the South Campus, historic Wende Hall with its distinctive stone fašade was originally the maternity ward of the county alms house. After its purchase by the University, the building was named Hochstetter Hall and was the first home for UB's Department of Physics. Over the next few decades, the building has housed various university classrooms and satellite offices, including University Development.
