UB is committed to protecting the health and safety of the UB community while remaining focused on our academic, research and community service mission. Ensuring the safety of the campus community is paramount as we evolve our response to the COVID-19 pandemic.

Effective Summer 2023

The State University of New York announced that a COVID-19 vaccine will no longer be mandated for students to attend SUNY’s 64 campuses, effective for summer courses, which coincides with the official end of the national public health emergency by President Biden’s administration.

  • Students enrolled in health-related programs must continue to provide proof of their primary COVID-19 vaccination. Documentation must be uploaded using the UB Student Health Services portal
  • All UB students and employees are strongly encouraged to stay up to date with their vaccinations, including getting  booster shots when eligible.
  • Proof of vaccination against COVID-19 is not required to attend events at UB.
