Release Date: March 11, 2020


BUFFALO, N.Y. — For the past month, the University at Buffalo has been preparing to move to a distance learning model for student instruction in response to the evolving COVID-19 situation.

With the governor’s guidance announced today, and in collaboration with SUNY leadership, UB will now move forward to implement its plans for distance learning beginning March 23.

The university is open this week. Classes, events and activities are operating on a normal schedule.

In consultation with SUNY, UB’s leadership will provide more information to our students, faculty and staff this week regarding implementation of distance learning at UB and the availability of on-campus services such as residence halls and dining.

UB has been communicating with the university community via its COVID-19 website, which has been updated almost daily since launching in January.
