For graduate and professional students, Flickinger Court Apartments offer family-friendly housing. Only one person needs to be a student at UB (contact us for details), and units can be rented as same-sex units or as gender-inclusive units.
UB offers gender-inclusive housing areas in select residence halls and apartments. In these communities, students are welcome to have roommates of different genders in the same room.
