About Ellicott Complex

Ellicott Complex—a Community of Communities

The Ellicott Complex is UB’s largest housing complex. It houses approximately 3,200 students and is divided into six buildings, or quadrangles (Fargo, Porter, Red Jacket, Richmond, Spaulding and Wilkeson), each with its own activities and events. Dormitory-style rooms vary from one to four-person rooms in each building. Ellicott offers general and specialty housing, including areas designated for first-year students (management, health, social sciences and first-year exploration), as well as gender-inclusive housing.
