Student Life Brick Legacy Program

Thank you for your interest in the Brick Legacy Program. Our 2024 campaign has closed for the semester. Please check back in the fall for details on particpation in 2025.

Give the gift that never fails - and a memory that never fades.

One class. One career. One defining moment. An experience made to be remembered.

Leave Your Legacy

The Student Life Brick Legacy Program began in 1992 as a class project, aimed at increasing campus community and a sense of belonging. The Student Union, as the hearthstone of the campus, was identified as the ideal location for students, families and campus organizations to leave their legacy on the wall in perpetuity.

When you reserve a brick on the UB Legacy Wall, located at the Student Union, your desired name will be etched into UB history.

For only $250 you can become a permanent part of the University at Buffalo, while providing financial support to the UB Fund for Student Life. Your tax-deductible gift will be designated to support student centered programs and other essential student services on campus.

What You Need to Know

  • Bricks have a limit of 17 characters (this includes: letters, numbers, punctuation marks and spaces)
