Concerts, world-renowned speakers and performances, and events that bring the community together: At UB, you’ll find a lot to do, regardless of the time of year and how much money is in your pocket. Did we mention we also have mud volleyball, farmers markets and cultural events?

Go Bulls!

 UB Men's Basketball

The UB Bulls' 20 athletic teams keep the excitement going all year long as they compete for Mid-American Conference championships.

UB boasts 20 NCAA Division I athletic programs that compete in the Mid-American Conference, with the exception of women’s rowing, a member of the Colonial Athletic Association. The UB Bulls play some of the top football programs in the nation. Our rugby team has hosted the national championships and our women’s rowing team is a conference champion.

Where to Live, What to Eat

One of UB's more than two-dozen dining options, Crossroads Culinary Center offers Marché-style dining featuring a variety of ethnic-themed foods, all prepared in front of students.

UB has more than a dozen residence halls, along with five campus apartment communities. On-campus living puts you at the heart of university life, making it easier to get to class, study and meet new people. Our residential dining centers, food courts and snack shops suit every taste.

Getting Involved

Expand your horizons. The UB experience is more than academics. There are hundreds of ways to explore your interests, make new friends, build new skills and contribute to the world around you.

Academics are important, but there’s so much more to your UB experience. Forge lifetime friendships through clubs, Greek life and community service. Learn about yourself and the world around you through leadership and diversity groups. With more than 300 clubs and organizations, there’s something for everyone.

Be Well, Live Well

Each semester UB's health and wellness offices (Counseling Services, Wellness Education Services, and Student Health Services) conduct events, like Chill Out, to help UB students recognize the signs of stress and find fun ways to relieve it.

Stay active by joining an intramural program or club sport, or enjoying an outdoor activity. For students, UB has a wealth of services to address smoking cessation, alcohol use, stress and other health and wellness issues. Other programs are available to the entire campus community.

Our Campuses

 UB's North Campus spine promenade.

Students walk along the Academic Spine on the North Campus, one of three distinct campuses that comprise our university. Each campus is easily accessible through free shuttle and bus systems.

UB’s North Campus in suburban Amherst houses most of our core undergraduate programs. Our South Campus is nestled in Buffalo’s University Heights neighborhood, and our Downtown Campus is home to cutting-edge medical research. A shuttle system links all three, making it easy to get around.

Explore Buffalo Niagara

A vibrant arts scene, quaint neighborhoods, remarkable restaurants and an affordable cost of living are just some of the things that make the Buffalo-Niagara region so dynamic. With professional sports teams, picturesque parks and world-class art galleries, there’s always something happening in the City of Good Neighbors.
