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.
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.
Get help managing college—and life—by focusing on your emotional well-being. We offer individual and group counseling, self-help resources and crisis intervention.
