What You Need To Know


All UB students will be required to be fully vaccinated against COVID-19 to attend classes in-person in the fall, according to a mandate from the state. This requirement is pending final approval from SUNY and is also subject to full approval of the vaccine by the Food and Drug Administration, which we expect to be granted soon.

Submit vaccination documentation through the Student Health Services portal

If you live on campus

All students and advisers living in residence halls and university-owned-and-operated apartments are required to be fully vaccinated upon move in to their assigned, on-campus residence.


UB strongly encourages all employees to get fully vaccinated, which means getting both doses of the Pfizer or Moderna vaccine, or the single shot Johnson & Johnson vaccine, as soon as possible. The vaccines are safe and effective.

Human Resources has provided guidance to employees on how to provide proof of vaccination.
