Student Life Brick Legacy Program

A lasting tribute! As a donor to the Brick Legacy Program, your desired name or message will be etched  into one of the bricks on the front outer wall of our Student Union—proudly displayed and forever commemorating your support of our students and university.

Student Life is funded in part through the generous donations of individuals like you—parents, alumni and other enthusiastic supporters who share a common commitment to preserving the rich legacy of our university and supporting its students.

The Student Life brick program began in 1992 as a class project, aimed at increasing campus community and a sense of belonging. The Student Union, as the hearthstone of the campus, was identified as the ideal location for students, families and campus organizations to leave their legacy in perpetuity.

The Legacy Wall of the Student Union is located on the south side of the building, facing the academic spine. This highly trafficked
pedestrian area showcases those who have chosen to leave their enduring symbol of pride and support for the University at Buffalo.

By purchasing a personalized brick for only $250 you too can become a permanent part of the University at Buffalo, while providing financial support to the UB Fund for Student Life. Your tax-deductible gift will be designated to support student centered programs and other essential student services on campus.
