Students are at the heart of UB, which is why, even before the COVID-19 pandemic struck, we offered crucial support to students facing uncertain financial circumstances. Now—perhaps more than any other time in the history of our university—our students need us to be there for them, and help them through this challenging time in their lives.
Even without the added burden of COVID-19, students are often faced with unexpected financial hardship. Many students simply do not have the financial resources to overcome a death in the family, medical emergency or loss of a job.
Now, as COVID-19 has put an unprecedented financial strain on our students, we are reaching out to students with numerous relief funds, both university-wide and within individual schools. In these difficult times, we are helping unprecedented numbers of students pay their rent, stay in school rather than drop out or simply not go hungry. With your generous support, we will continue to offer an essential safety net to our students, and show them that they can always count on UB.
