UB will grant prorated credits for room and board (including residence hall/housing, and dining/meal expenses) to students with housing and meal contracts who opt to remain off campus. Non-resident students who have meal plan contracts are also eligible for a prorated credit.
After these credits are applied to the students account, refunds will be granted where applicable — for example, seniors who complete coursework this spring and do not plan to return to UB.
Students anticipating a refund are encouraged to enroll in direct deposit, https://www.buffalo.edu/studentaccounts/refunds/refund-direct-deposit.html. Absent a direct deposit on file, a refund check will be issued and mailed to the student’s permanent address.
