Support Services.

You always have a real person to talk to when you live on campus. At UB, we’re here to help with what you need, such as getting along with your roommate and dealing with life-changing events.

Help is Just Steps Away

One of the first people you'll meet at UB is your Resident Advisor (RA) or Community Assistant (CA).

Your RA (in the residence halls) or CA (in the apartments) is an experienced UB student—typically an upper class or graduate student—who lives on your floor, in your building or in your apartment complex. They're the first person you should talk to when you have a question, need help with a problem, or want to get more out of living on campus.

Trained Resident Advisors and Community Assistants—Only at UB
  • Help students transition to campus life
  • Show you how to get around UB
  • Meet with you one-on-one throughout the year
  • Lead social and educational activities
  • Hold students accountable to conduct guidelines
  • Refer students to support services throughout campus
