You may also request access to use Student Union (SU) 325 on UB's North Campus from the attendants at the Student Union Welcome Center. The Student Union Welcome Center is typically staffed from 9:00 am - midnight, seven days a week, when classes are in session.
On UB's South Campus, you may request access to use a private space in Abbott Hall Health Sciences Library (HSL) by asking for the Room #112 key at the Library Circulation desk when the library is open. Abbott Hall HSL has evening and weekend hours when classes are in session.
Life happens outside of the workplace and classroom. An inclusive environment means allowing flexibility to balance academic, work and family obligations.
