We encourage you to learn more about official UB on-campus housing. Of course, you can always contact us if you have any specific questions or concerns.
On-campus apartment housing provides students the best of both worlds. You have greater independence and expanded amenities such as close parking, free laundry, having your own room, low student-to-bathroom ratio, full kitchens and air-conditioning while still having the support of UB staff throughout the year.
We recommend that residents have renters' insurance, since we are not responsible for damage to personal property.
New student roommate requests may be updated until May 1. All roommate requests must be mutual. Requests will be considered; however, they may not always be possible, due to space availability and eligibility requirements. Students looking for roommate requests after assignments are done should complete an assignment change request form
When your insurance policy, future employers, post-graduate housing providers, or other off-campus entities need to confirm your current or former on-campus address, Campus Living will provide an address verification for you.
To request an address verification, please contact email@example.com. Include your full name, UB Person Number, phone number and email address where the verification should be sent. In order to confirm your identity we may reach out to you via phone or email.
Government contractors or other third parties should be prepared to present investigative credentials in person at 106 Red Jacket Quad, Ellicott Complex Buffalo, NY 14261 during regular business hours.
Our live-in residential life and apartment staff is available to provide assistance and leadership. In our residence halls, there is both a residence hall director and an assistant residence hall director. In our apartments, complex directors and assistant complex directors serve similar roles. Directors are full-time staff members with master's degrees, while assistant directors are specially trained graduate students.
Directors and/or assistant directors are on duty each night. In addition, there is typically one live-in resident advisor for approximately every 30 students. Resident advisors (upper-division undergraduate students who are carefully selected and trained) will usually be your first point of reference and assistance during your stay with us.
Parking is available near your residence hall. You are not guaranteed a spot by your building. Unlike other universities, UB does allow first-year students to have cars on campus.
Parking at each village is reserved for residents of that village only. You are not guaranteed a spot by your unit.
You can send and receive mail and packages when you live at UB.
Landlines have been removed from on-campus housing. There are courtesy phones located throughout the buildings for emergencies and on-campus calls. Most students use cellphones as their telephone service.
You are...and for your convenience, washing machines and dryers are located in every residence hall and apartment building. Laundry machines are available free of charge, 24/7 to students living on-campus.
Recycling is available in every residence hall and apartment complex.
Your rent is conveniently billed directly to your student account.
