Official On-Campus Housing

Residence Halls

Outdoor fire pits. Environmentally friendly housing. Dining options voted the best in the nation. Residence halls designed by I.M. Pei and Associates. You’ll find all of this—and so much more—only at UB’s official on-campus housing. It’s easy to enjoy everything that UB has to offer when you live right here.

Residence halls are located on both UB's North Campus and South Campus. First-year students typically live in Ellicott Complex, Governors or South Campus Halls, and then many move to Greiner Hall for their sophomore year and into UB’s on-campus apartments for junior and senior years.

North Campus Residence Halls

Get the best of both worlds—a big-college experience with a friendly, community feel. Located on UB’s North Campus, just 5 minutes from the academic spine, Ellicott Complex is open to all students.
Make lifelong friends at Governors Complex, your new home away from home. Designed by I.M. Pei and Associates, Governors is located on UB’s North Campus, right across the street from UB’s academic spine. Everything you need is just steps away, from a new restaurant and laundry area to a high-tech study lounge.
Greiner Hall is a unique learning landscape designed just for second-year students. Whether you want to relax on the outdoor stone patio, grab a bite at Au Bon Pain or meet with your study group in the fireside lounge, you’ll find everything you need right here. Greiner Hall is located on UB’s North Campus, adjacent to Ellicott Complex, and just 5 minutes from the academic spine.

South Campus Residence Halls

With restaurants, boutique stores, a movie theater and a supermarket right across the street, the South Campus Halls offer the best of city living in a classic residential setting. The halls are located on UB’s picturesque South Campus—the university’s original campus, and a local landmark since 1920 with its ivy-covered buildings and grand courtyards.
