Find Your Home

At UB, you can choose to live on-campus or off-campus. Many students choose on-campus housing for the convenience, safety and community. For students who want to live off-campus, we offer an interactive directory of inspected apartments, help for dealing with landlords, and resources to help you be a good neighbor.

Deciding to live off campus is something you should take seriously. An off-campus apartment can be an amazing new home — but it could also cost you a lot more than you think and cause problems with your roommates. We’re here to help you understand these issues, so you can make the right decisions and enjoy your time living off campus.
