Dining Dollars are used instead of cash in residence halls, food courts, snack bars, vending machines and university convenience stores for food and beverage purchases.

Eating at Home

Off-Campus Supermarkets

There are several supermarkets near the North and South Campuses. If you don't feel like walking, you can take a free, convenient ride on UB's Mall and Market Shuttle. 

Food Support

The University Presbyterian Church has a food pantry available to students and residents. UB students who wish to use this service should know the following:

  • You don't need to register as an ongoing client to use this service. You just need to present a valid UB student ID.
  • The pantry is open to the public from 12:00 to 4:00 p.m. on Tuesdays and Thursdays. If you cannot make arrangements to visit during these times, you can contact the church to set up an appointment.

If you are a student who is concerned about access to food, or if you're a staff or faculty member who is concerned about a student's access to food, please contact Health Promotion for an evaluation and to get connected to resources both on and off campus.

Your Kitchen

Make dinner with your friends, bake a birthday cake or just enjoy a midnight snack. When you live on campus, you’ll have easy access to a kitchen in your residence hall or apartment.
