Location: Mud Pit on St. Rita's Lane, UB North Campus
This event sells out every year. Reserve your team's slot early!
Oozefest started in 1984 as a way to help students de-stress before exams and bring the UB community together. Today, anyone can play at Oozefest, including students from UB and other schools, staff, faculty, alumni, corporate sponsors and friends. It’s a great way to show your school spirit, hang out with your friends, and win trophies, gift cards and other fun prizes.
Oozefest is an all-weather event. Here are a few tips to help you get the most out of Oozefest:
You must register your team online, and registrations will be accepted on a first-come, first-served basis. Space is limited, so make sure you sign up early.
You can volunteer individually or as a group. Volunteers are needed to help register people, feed the players and volunteers, referee games, keep score, make announcements, take photos, staff the outdoor showers and keep the area around the mud pits clean. Volunteers must attend a volunteer information meeting to learn more about Oozefest and the specific volunteer areas.
Sponsorship opportunities are available; please contact Student Engagement for more information.
