Students travel thousands of miles to attend UB for more than the academic opportunities. They also seek out UB for experiences they’ll remember long after they graduate. You’ll see this when you get here. UB has many unique traditions that forge lasting connections and memories.
UB is committed to providing all members of its campus community with a safe, friendly and welcoming environment to live, learn, work and visit. We are a diverse, multicultural institution that welcomes and celebrates the people who live, work and study at our campuses. Our largest campus is located in Amherst, N.Y., which is ranked among the safest cities in the country.
Students like you are what make our campus community great. Our diversity and international engagement make us more inquisitive as scholars and more compassionate as human beings. Our doors remain open to everyone. Buffalo, New York is known as the City of Good Neighbors for good reason. Here, we take care of one another.
