Need to check into an event with your UBLinked Event Pass? Good! It's required that all events that are hosted on UBLinked check people in using the UBLinked Event Check-In App and have attendees use their UBLinked Event Pass. So, how do you access your event pass to check into an event?
You can save the UBLinked Event Pass to your phone's wallet, take a screenshot and keep it in your camera roll, or sign in to UBLinked every time you check in to an event. It's that easy!
At UB, we recognize that clubs and organizations are an invaluable part of the university community. We are proud to support campus groups by offering a variety of programs and services designed to help them.
Did you know that any UB student can start a new club? Well, now you do! If you're interested in starting a new club on campus, check out the steps below.
New clubs can be recognized by a student government, university department, or campus ministry. To determine which recognizing agent would be best for the club you would like to start, look into what kind of clubs and organizations each already oversees.
In order to apply and be approved for club recognition, your organization must have at least 10 club members that should be added to your club roster when you register a new organization on UBLinked.
Each recognizing agent has a different process for new club recognition.
To be recognized by a Student Government…
Please utilize the links below to access each student government’s new club information:
To be recognized by a University Department…
Contact the department and request a letter of support from the Dean or Department Director that will be submitted through the university recognition application on UBLinked.
To be recognized by a Campus Ministry…
After receiving formal approval from your recognizing agent, your organization will be eligible to apply for university-wide recognition. All submissions will be received and reviewed on UBLinked. Submit your new club by navigating to the ‘Register a New Organization’ button.
Please note the following as you are completing your application in order to ensure approval:
Student Engagement will review all submissions on UBLinked within 7-14 days. All listed club officers and contacts will be notified via email whether the club submission was approved or denied. If denied, Student Engagement will work with you and your designated recognizing agent to determine how to achieve approval. If approved, you will receive an official email with notification of official university-wide recognition and you will have access to get your organization started.
