Student Clubs and Organizations

Updated September 25, 2019

At the University at Buffalo, we recognize that clubs and organizations are an invaluable part of the university community. UB students organize and lead over 600 clubs and organizations

We are proud to support campus UB clubs and organizations by offering a variety of programs and services designed to help them, including advisement on UB and SUNY policies, available campus programs and how to start a new student organization (budgeting, fundraising, travel and office space). 

Student clubs and organizations must be officially recognized to utilize services and participate in campus events.  An organization can be recognized by one of UB’s student governments or by a university department. 

There are currently seven student governments that have an affiliation with the University at Buffalo:

At UB, these independent student governments represent the student body to university administration. All UB governments are funded by a  mandatory student activity fee, per SUNY guidelines.
