Your Life at UB

UB is a melting pot of cultures with more than 200 student clubs and year-round activities. There’s always something fun, tasty, exciting and relaxing going on!

Hear our stories in our own words! We're international students, alumni and faculty, and we can't wait to share some of our UB experiences with you.
UB’s campuses feature something for everyone, from the traditional “ivy-covered” collegiate setting to state-of-the-art facilities located in Buffalo’s downtown medical science center.
Life on our dynamic, friendly campuses never stops changing, offering you endless opportunities to have fun, get involved and make lifelong connections. From your first day of orientation until the day you graduate, all aspects of student life—sports, clubs, student activities and our on-campus housing communities—are connected, diverse and welcoming.
Students travel thousands of miles to attend UB for more than the academic opportunities. They also seek out UB for experiences they’ll remember long after they graduate.
Located on Lake Erie, one of the famous Great Lakes, the Buffalo-Niagara area is a friendly, accessible community that is close and convenient to several major metropolitan areas, including New York City, Washington, D.C., Boston and Toronto, Canada’s largest urban center. UB is minutes from Niagara Falls, professional sports, world-renowned museums, diverse restaurants and vibrant arts and entertainment.
We want UB to be your home away from home, and we have just the place for you, including traditional dormitory style housing and on-campus apartment villages.
Amherst, N.Y., home to UB’s North Campus, is a friendly suburb of Buffalo that is consistently voted one of the safest communities of its size in the United States. In fact, Western New York is known for its warm and welcoming citizens. UB is committed to providing our students with the safest possible living and learning environment.
