Parking, Biking & Transportation

UB Stampede Bus Picking up students.

Whether you need to find parking, get to class or go shopping, we can help point you in the right direction.


Residence Hall Parking

If you live in the residence halls, you can park in one of the nearby lots. Please note that a parking permit is required (weekend visitors can park in a residence hall lot without a permit after 3 p.m. Friday). Also, please note that freshmen who live in the residence halls are required to leave their vehicles in their residence hall lot or in a Park and Ride Lot during prime hours. 

First-Year Students Can Have a Car at UB

Unlike other universities, at UB all students are allowed to have a car on campus—including first-year students in residence halls.

Apartment Parking

Parking at each UB apartment complex is reserved for residents of those apartments at all times (a parking permit is required). While there is usually plenty of parking, please note that you are not guaranteed a spot by your apartment.

Buses & Shuttles

Bus and shuttle stops are conveniently located at (or near) all of UB’s official on-campus residence halls and apartment complexes.

UB Buses & Shuttles—Only at UB

UB buses and shuttles only go to official UB on-campus residence halls and apartments and specific designated off-campus locations. They do not go to private, off-campus apartments.

Bicycling at UB

UB offers many resources for students who wish to bike on campus.
