One World Café, UB’s new “front door,” is an exciting renovation that will provide students, staff and visitors with a state-of-the-art dining and gathering space.
One World Café is a transformative initiative designed by the UB community, for the UB community.
Slated to open in spring 2022, the café will be located at one of the busiest crossroads on campus, with tens of thousands of UB students, faculty, staff, alumni and visitors (including prospective students) passing through each year.
With seating for more than 800, One World Café will offer a global array of authentic, internationally-themed menu options. This premier destination for studying, socializing and exploring other cultures will also serve as the home of the University Club. The multicultural environment will support UB’s mission and showcase our global community, including one of the most international student populations in the country. It also provides an opportunity to promote research in such areas as sustainability and community food systems.
Now, we’re asking you to help bring this building to life. Donor support is essential to fulfilling the strategic plan for One World Café and achieving the full potential for this signature space. By making gifts totaling $1,000, $2,500, or $5,000+, your name will be recognized in this world class space for years to come!
