Oozefest is BACK!

Open to Everyone

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 more.
