South Campus Halls

Residence Halls: Clement, Goodyear

With restaurants, boutique stores, a movie theater and a supermarket right across the street, the South Campus Halls offer the best of city living in a classic residential setting. The halls are located on UB’s picturesque South Campus—the university’s original campus, and a local landmark since 1920 with its ivy-covered buildings and grand courtyards.

About South Campus

South Campus Halls—Welcome to the Neighborhood

South Campus offers general and specialty housing, including areas designated for architecture students.
