Prospective Students

Life at UB doesn’t just take place in the classroom. We have more than 200 student clubs and organizations, award-winning residence halls and dining facilities, and popular orientation programs that make the transition to UB easy for you and your family. Start here, and see how we can help you build a strong foundation for your academic and personal development, connect with people and resources before you even arrive on campus, and learn proven strategies for success at UB.  

Explore our residence halls, learn about top-rated dining choices that fit your lifestyle, find directions and maps (including information on bike routes), and see why we’re one of the leading “green” campuses in the country. 

Discover new passions. Carry on traditions. Show your college pride. As the heart and culture of our UB community, we offer countless ways for you to get involved. See how we help students uncover new personal insights, make lifelong friends, and gain a fuller understanding of the world. 

Whether you’re thinking about graduate school, building a resume for life after graduation, or you just want to focus on strengthening your personal development, we have the resources to give you a competitive edge. With countless learning opportunities outside of the classroom, we can help you achieve your goals during your time at UB, then make the successful transition from college to career — or whatever your next step may be. 

Learn about our comprehensive services, including urgent and non-urgent medical care (including immunizations), counseling designed to help you manage the transition to college, and wellness education focused on healthy eating, stress management and other timely topics. We also invite you to meet our University Police — certified New York State Police Officers who keep UB safe.
