We have housing options for everyone that will help make campus your new home! Our comfortable, modern and affordable on-campus housing includes all-inclusive residence halls, shared academic communities and even private rooms.
No matter what you choose, our housing makes it easy to make friends and to get involved.
At UB we don't require students to live on campus, but we strongly encourage you to do so. We find that students who live in the dorms are more successful academically and are happier overall with their university experience. Here are some of the many reasons why:
You’re minutes from your classes, dining centers, recreation centers and support services. No driving is necessary!
All residence halls have quiet areas, group study rooms, tutoring and shared interest areas. Studies consistently show that students who live on campus do better academically.
On-campus housing is a safe, secure environment where residents gain access through either their UB ID Card or keys. Facilities are equipped with fire safety systems and staff are on duty 24/7.
Everything associated with your residence hall room is included in the price of housing. There are no extra bills for electricity, water, cable TV, Internet and laundry; all services are included in the price of your room.
Living on campus is the easiest way to make new friends. And there are so many activities that you will always find something to do!
Living on campus makes the UB experience. Check out what UB has to offer in on-campus living.

Student housing is available on the North Campus, where most of your classes will be held, and on the South Campus (approximately three kilometers from the North Campus with university bus service between the campuses).
Our residence halls are comfortable living communities that make it easy for you to meet friends and to get involved with activities outside class. The North Campus has residence halls in two clusters: Governors Complex and the Ellicott Complex, including the environmentally friendly William R. Greiner Hall. The South Campus has two residence halls.
Several room styles are available, including suites with their own lounges and more traditional two-person rooms along corridors. Each room also has free cable TV and high-speed Internet connections.
Apartment-style housing (generally reserved for juniors, seniors, and graduate and professional students) is available both on and adjacent to the North Campus. All apartments are furnished and feature a full kitchen with all appliances and amenities.
Students applying for housing are given the option of entering housing preferences for either North or South Campus options. North Campus housing options fill up quickly, so the earlier you apply the better your chances will be to secure your desired location.
UB offers housing during the fall, winter, and spring break periods. Students residing in our on-campus apartments are automatically approved for all break housing. Students residing in our residence hall (dormitory-style) housing must apply and be approved for housing during the break periods. Additional charges apply for the winter break period for residence hall students.
