Building UB: Our Physical Plan

The Impact of Our Physical Plan

Making our campuses more beautiful, sustainable and lovable—in support of academic excellence.

Building UB: the Comprehensive Physical Plan will create one university on three campuses. Our campuses will be better connected, with each other, as well as with our neighbors and the region, and developed in concert with city, town, county, and regional plans.
