Even though classes are remote you can still get support from many offices on campus.

Tutoring & Academic Support Services

UB's Tutoring & Academic Support Services has a lot of great information on their website. Many of UB’s academic support services can be accessed online and some are also offering virtual appointments to allow you to speak with a staff member.

Check out their flyer for tips on being successful while distance learning below!

Navigate's Study Buddies Feature

Study Buddies is a feature within the Navigate mobile app or desktop site that allows you to opt-in to connect with students in each of your classes who are interested in forming study groups. How you choose to interact can be decided by your group, whether it be in-person or virtually.

Staying Connected

Social distancing does not need to end all socializing. Connect with others and meet new friends through these online activities and workshops.

  • Volunteer virtually: Click to RSVP for an event that lets you know how to support causes remotely.
  • Network for Enriched Academic Relationships (NEAR): this transdisciplinary mentoring directory functions to provide graduate students guidance with issues beyond academia
  • Through WiSE, undergraduate and graduate women majoring in STEM disciplines can network with peers and obtain support from mentors.
