Open REC

Recreation Re-Opening Plan

Current UB Students can now enjoy modified services and programming from UB Recreation at Alumni Arena.

The fitness centers will remain CLOSED as we work towards meeting NYS guidelines set by the governor's office that must be met prior to re-opening our fitness facilities and gyms. Once those guidelines are met, we will re-open our fitness facilities.

In the meantime, we are offering a variety of other recreational activities to UB Students.

THANK YOU for your patience and understanding as we navigate through these challenging times. To connect with us please use the following:
