The University at Buffalo is again offering a full schedule of in-person classes and a vibrant campus experience. To protect the health of the UB community, the university has implemented a comprehensive set of health and safety guidelines for the summer and fall semesters.
UB’s guidelines are based on the recommendations of the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, the New York State Department of Health and SUNY. All members of the UB community are urged to familiarize themselves with UB’s guidelines and to stay informed of any changes.
As always, the health and safety of the UB community remains paramount. The university may adjust its health guidelines, as needed, based on new scientific evidence and the course of the pandemic.
