Congratulations on being accepted to UB. We look forward to seeing you on campus — but first, make sure you know what you need to do before you get here.

Welcome Weekend

The new student experience the first weekend before fall semester classes start is Welcome Weekend — during this time you'll get settled on campus, meet other new students, and adjust to your new home. All new students (first-year, transfer, domestic, and international) will participate in a series of optional and required programs and events.

Fun, Friends, Freedom
