  • Crime Reporting
    If you know about a crime or any suspicious activity, please report it as soon as possible. Telling an authority about crimes and suspicious activity helps keep you and other members of the UB community safer.
  • Suicide Intervention
    Even when problems seem overwhelming and too difficult to handle, there is always someone here to listen, offer support and help you through a crisis.
  • Students in Distress
    Make sure you know how to recognize a student who may be distressed, or whose behavior is concerning to you because it is disruptive or disturbing. With your help, any student can get the professional care they deserve — and UB can be a safer place for all of us.
  • Alcohol and Drug Overdose
    If any of these signs occur, get help — don’t do it alone. Alcohol poisoning and drug overdoses can lead to death. Stay with the person until help arrives.
  • Unwanted Sexual Experience
    If you or someone you know has been sexually assaulted, it’s important to get help as soon as possible. Professionals trained in crisis intervention are available free to UB students, and can help guide you through what services are available, so you can choose what happens next.
  • Victim Assistance
    If you’ve been affected by a crime, we’re here to help you make a report and connect to supportive resources.
  • Emergency Funds
    Unanticipated circumstances can prevent students from continuing their education and achieving academic success. UB has unique resources to connect students to emergency funding. 
  • Food Support
    Consistent access to food is a necessary part of being a successful, healthy student. Should you experience an unanticipated hardship or emergency, we can help connect you to groceries.
