Community Day

UB students join forces with community members to make the neighborhoods a bit brighter as part of UB Community Day.

UB Community Day is held twice each year to help clean up neighborhoods and assist local agencies with service projects, benefitting the community, fostering better relationships with residents, and showing students the value of getting involved in neighborhood projects.

About the event

During this day of service, student volunteers work hand in hand with neighborhood residents at sites around the Downtown and South campuses. Past projects include painting, preparing community gardens and neighborhood flower beds, removing graffiti and general cleanup tasks. Community Day is a chance for the university community to give back to the city it loves and to demonstrate UB’s commitment to the neighborhoods around its campuses.
