International Student Clubs

At UB, we are fortunate to have many vibrant International Student Clubs, which are a wonderful resource for new students.

Some of them organize airport pick-ups and temporary housing for new students. All possess a wealth of information about academic programs, campus resources, social opportunities and life in Buffalo. While the clubs are all very different, they revolve around specific countries, cultures, languages and/or religions. It is easy to get involved with any club in which you have an interest—regardless of your own affiliation. All you need is a desire to get involved and to learn. Be sure to contact your club or join a few!
