Masks are optional on UB’s campuses in most settings:

  • Students, faculty, staff and visitors, regardless of vaccination status, will no longer be required to wear masks in most settings, indoors or outdoors. 
  • Anyone who wishes to continue wearing a mask in a classroom, office or any other campus space is encouraged to do so. 
  • Clinical health care settings: Masks are required in clinical health care settings on campus, such as Student Health Services, dental school facilities and testing sites.
  • Buses and Shuttles: Individuals will be asked to put on a mask while aboard UB shuttles to the Student Health Services center at 4350 Maple Road, near Sweet Home Road. Masks are not required on other buses and shuttles.
  • UB faculty, staff and students who work or learn at hospitals, nursing homes, clinics or diagnostic and treatment centers off campus must continue to comply with any site-specific regulations in place.

Remember: There are many reasons that individuals may continue to wear a mask, including those who are:

  • Unvaccinated 
  • Immunocompromised
  • Living with someone at higher risk

Please be kind and respectful toward others in our UB community.
