Be a good neighbor in the city of good neighbors.

Whether you live on or off campus, it's important to be courteous to those living around you. The following resources have some helpful tips on being your best as a neighbor:

It's important to be a responsible member of the community. Remember — not all of your neighbors may be college students.

  • Living Together
    At UB, we strive to provide a safe and comfortable home for the nearly 7,000 students who live on campus. To make things run as smoothly as possible, we expect students to be considerate, use common sense, and follow our well-established guidelines.
  • Community and Safety
    Here, you’re part of a diverse, welcoming community. We encourage you to understand the rules that apply, and know what is expected from you as a UB student.
