Building UB: Our Physical Plan

North Campus

The capital projects for North Campus address some of the varying needs of this diverse campus. These capital projects will improve the environments for many faculty, students and staff by creating new housing for students, improved amenities for faculty and staff and modern teaching and learning facilities.
