All-Inclusive Rates

At UB, your rates include electricity, cable TV, internet, laundry and much more. Our housing agreements are based on the 10-month academic year, so you’re not paying rent over the summer. And unlike off-campus apartments, UB offers flexible housing agreements for students who study abroad or need to change their housing arrangements. When you compare costs, it’s easy to see how you can save money by living on campus.

Governors - Your First Home

Home to nearly 800 students in double (two-person) rooms, Governors Complex is the smaller of the two dormitory-style housing complexes on UB’s North Campus. It is divided into four identical, interconnected halls (Clinton, Dewey, Lehman and Roosevelt), each with their own activities and events—and each named for a famous New York governor.

Governors offers general and specialty housing, including areas designated for FYI-Engineering, Honors College, Leadership House, and Daniel Acker Scholars.
