Off Campus Buildings

In 1987, David Anderson purchased an abandoned elementary school in Buffalo's University District. Renovation of the existing structure and construction of a two-story glass-walled addition was completed five years later. The first floor exhibition space consists of four galleries that comprise over 4,400 square feet. The second floor space includes an exhibition hallway and a glass-walled sculpture gallery, comprising another 4,200 square feet. For the past ten years, the Gallery has produced over seventy-five exhibits featuring artists that are internationally recognized as well as emerging. The Gallery was donated to the University in 2000 and falls under auspices of the Center for the Arts.
Baird Research Park is what is known as an incubator site. It is a cooperative effort between the UB Business Alliance and the Western New York Technology Development Center. Its purpose is to improve the success rate of startup technology companies. Since its inception in 1988, the program has helped create more than 1,000 new jobs through partnerships with 63 companies that graduated from the incubator and 32 current tenants with annual revenues of $60 million. The program is run by UB's Office of Science, Technology Transfer and Economic Outreach (STOR).  The University leases space in the facility.
The boathouse is located in the Town of Amherst's Veterans Park, 50 feet from the North Tonawanda Creek. Veterans Park is located off of Brenon Road which is off of Tonawanda Creek Road. The boathouse houses the rowing equipment for the UB rowing teams.
Flickinger Court is one of UB's graduate student housing options. The village contains 115 units in thirteen townhouse apartment clusters arranged on 11.5 acres of lawns and landscaping. There is also a community building.
To relieve overcrowding of book stacks in all of the UB Libraries, and to provide minimal space for continuing growing of collections, the new high-density center will house about 1.5 million volumes. The Annex will also include a reading room, a document delivery center, staff work areas and parking.
This home is the residence of the current University President.
