Whether you’re playing cards in the lounge at 2 a.m.,
sharing a meal with 30 of your new best friends or discovering
interests you never knew you had, these are the times you’ll
remember for the rest of your life.
You’re closer to classes, friends and everything UB has to
offer when you live on campus. You can walk or bike around campus,
use our free buses and shuttles, or bring your own car to get
around—even if you’re a freshman.
UB is committed to providing you with a safe, friendly and
welcoming environment. From safety escorts and trained staff to
nationally recognized University Police, we’re here to help
keep you safe 24/7.
UB is proud to be among the top 2 percent of colleges and
universities in North America for sustainability, based on our
certified “gold” rating from the Association for the
Advancement of Sustainability in Higher Education.
UB is more than a place to live. It’s a community where
you belong. We are proud to offer a safe, supportive and
comfortable living environment where students are encouraged to
appreciate diversity, act with civility and treat others with
dignity at all times.
Life on campus is full of activity and fun! There are a number
of ways to view the faces, places and people that make living
on-campus at the University at Buffalo so special. Review our full

UB is consistently ranked as one of the top public universities
in the nation, and we’re proud to play a role in helping
students succeed. When you live on campus, you’ll be
surrounded by people and programs here to help you get better
grades, graduate on time and achieve your full potential.
You’ll spend most of your time at UB outside of the
classroom. Living on campus helps you get involved in activities
and clubs that interest you—including opportunities only
available to students who live here.
Whether you want food trucks or Starbucks, global cuisine or
locally grown veggies, you’ll find it at UB. From
made-to-order breakfasts to midnight snacks—and everything in
between—you’ll savor every bite.
There’s always something happening at UB, usually just
steps from your door—and for free! See some of today’s
hottest bands. Play video games. Take a cooking class. Or cheer on
your favorite UB Bulls team.
When you live on campus you’ll enjoy modern fitness
centers, free personal training and classes. You’ll
appreciate a total fitness program, thanks to our established
relationships with UB’s School of Public Health and Health
Professions and Wellness Education Services. And you’ll
experience the natural outdoor beauty of our campuses.
Learning happens everywhere at UB. Just walk down the hall or
across the yard, and you’ll find countless opportunities to
grow as a student—and as a person. We take an active approach
to your personal development, with a residential curriculum
intentionally designed around proven learning outcomes.
