What are UB’s guidelines for special events?

For events and gatherings on campus, the university will adhere to New York State guidelines, as well as recommendations from the CDC and public health experts. Restrictions and requirements for an event or gathering may change, depending on the degree of COVID-19 spread within the community.   

Vaccination policy for campus events

Proof of vaccination against COVID-19 will no longer be required to attend events at UB.

Effective immediately, spectators do not need to show a vaccination card upon entering sporting events at UB Stadium or Alumni Arena, or to attend cultural events at the Center for the Arts and Slee Hall.

This also applies to students and guests attending commencement ceremonies in May.

Mask policy for campus events

Masks are no longer required at UB events, either, part of an earlier decision to lift that mandate for most campus settings on March 5, based on updated guidance from the state and Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.
