Student Resources

Students sitting in a row.

The University at Buffalo has many different resources to aid you in your academic studies. These services are available to all students, on and off campus. Please take advantage of all they have to offer.

It is also important to understand what sources are allowable. Many professors prohibit the use of certain resources, so please be sure to check what is acceptable for each of your courses.
