Paying Your Deposits

Congratulations on your acceptance to the University at Buffalo! UB has chosen you, and now it’s your turn to choose UB and reserve your place at one of the best public universities in the United States.

Once you have decided that UB is the school for you, it’s time to reserve your place here by paying your tuition deposit. After we receive your tuition deposit, our office will start processing your I-20 / DS-2019 (if needed).

If you are planning to live on campus, please visit the Campus Living website to submit a housing application and pay the housing application deposit. The housing application system is currently open for Fall 2023.


UB Person Number

Your 8 digit UB Person Number is required to pay your deposit. This number will be issued to you within 1 week of your admission decision. You will find this number at the top of your Applicant Status Portal.

Deposit deadlines

Spring Semester: December 1

Fall Semester: May 1

Missed the deposit date?

Tuition deposits are accepted after the deadline dates if seats are still available. But don’t lose your chance to study at UB; make your commitment by the specified deadlines.
