Emergency and Crisis

Call University Police at (716) 645-2222 or use any blue light emergency phone for emergencies on campus. For off-campus emergencies, call 911.

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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
If you’ve been affected by a crime, we’re here to help you.
Unanticipated circumstances can prevent students from continuing their education and achieving academic success.  UB has two unique resources to connect students to emergency funding. 
Consistent access to nutritious food is a necessary part of being a successful, healthy student.  Should you experience an unanticipated hardship, we can help connect you to groceries.
