Get Involved

You’ll spend most of your time at UB outside of the classroom. Living on campus helps you get involved in activities and clubs that interest you—including opportunities only available to students who live here.

Hundreds of Clubs. Thousands of Programs.

At UB, you can tailor your own experience. You’ll find something for everyone on campus, with thousands of community-building programs each year in the residence halls and apartments alone—plus more than 500 academic, service-related, international, and multicultural clubs and organizations. Use UBLinked to search by name or type of organization, or view by interest categories. (You’ll get UBLinked access when you’re admitted to UB.)

Exclusive Leadership Opportunities

When you live in official UB on-campus housing, you'll have leadership opportunities that are only available to on-campus students. You can learn new skills, show your initiative and help build strong communities, right where you live. Ask your resident advisor or campus assistant for more details.

Residence Hall Association (RHA)

  • One of the largest student-run organizations on campus
  • Open to all students living in UB’s residence halls or apartments
  • Oversees hall and village councils
  • Affiliated with regional and national residence hall association organizations, including the National Association of College and University Residence Halls

Hall & Village Council

  • Student government body that represents students on various issues
  • One council for each residence hall and apartment complex
  • Develops programs for residents and facilitates communication 
  • Gives you a voice in decisions that affect your residence hall or apartment

Peer Conduct Board (PCB)

  • Hears cases from students who violate residence hall rules or policies
  • Listens to evidence and decide if your fellow students are responsible for the alleged violation
  • Open to any student who lives in the residence halls and does not have any significant conduct violations

Research shows that students who live in on-campus housing are more engaged and build longer-lasting connections than their peers.
