Academic & Full-Year Application

At UB, we make it as easy as possible to apply for official on-campus housing. You are guaranteed housing as long as you follow the application process and submit your housing deposit (and, for new and transfer students, your tuition deposit) by the deadline. 

New to UB?

Please view the Before You Apply page in order to understand the full housing application process.

Please note that most housing agreements are for the academic year, while some apartments are available for full-year housing.

Fall Semester – New and Transfer Students

Submit your housing application

Fall housing for new and incoming transfer students is assigned based on the date you completed your housing application, including signed housing agreement, your $150 tuition deposit (if apllicable), and your $300 housing deposit. You will have the opportunity to enter preferences for:

  • room type and location
  • roommate(s)
  • Living Learning Communites
  • Accommodation Request

UB offers many different types of housing, from traditional dormitory-style rooms to on-campus apartments (some of which offer full-year housing agreements). Your eligibility to live in each of these communities depends on a number of factors, including your high school graduation date. Current UB students are given first preference to select apartments, so availability for new students is limited in these areas.

Assignments are emailed in early July and in early August (with full move-in information).

If you apply after the deposit window has closed, you will be directed to apply for a spot on the waiting list.
