As of 2023, we have re-evaluated our summer conference program, in the context of emerging priorities with our residential physical plant. Our priority is to provide the best living accommodations for our academic year students. We must use the summer months to complete critical maintenance and repair projects at our facilities. In order to achieve this:
• We have limited conferences, camps, and programs to those that are sponsored by UB departments and composed primarily of current or admitted UB students.
• These programs must take place between June 1 and July 31 with stays meeting a minimum number of nights.
• Availability must first accommodate summer school, orientation, EOP and all other primary residential groups.
• For groups comprised of non-UB students, specific requirements must be met, and requests will be evaluated on a case-by-case basis to ensure the program supports the University or Campus Living mission, and aids in retention or recruitment efforts, particularly of underrepresented populations.
Locations vary from year to year as we use the summer months to complete critical maintenance and repair projects at our facilities. Assignments are typically determined by mid-spring. Available locations may include:
