The choices you make can help you feel better today — and prevent health issues in the future. Learn more about how to take care of yourself as a UB student.

Be Your Best

A healthy lifestyle can help you get better grades, stay out of trouble, and enjoy all of your time at UB.

  • Sleep
    Getting enough sleep helps you learn faster, gives you more energy throughout the day and even boosts your immune health.
  • Healthy Eating
    As a busy college student, you want to eat well. With nutritious on-campus meals, cooking workshops and more, we’re here to help you feel your best.
  • Alcohol and Other Drug Safety and Awareness
    It’s up to you to decide whether you want to use alcohol and other drugs — and if so, we’re here to help you and your friends reduce risk.
  • Sexual Health
    Not all college students are sexually active. However, if you are, here are a couple things you should know to stay safe and healthy.
  • Quit Smoking
    Whether you smoke or vape, quitting isn’t easy. UB has resources to help you quit so you can feel better and save money.
  • Personal Health Kit
    Whether you’re living on-campus or off-campus, it’s a good idea to have a personal health kit filled with things you might need in case you’re not feeling well. Pack a kit before your first semester — then check it at the beginning of each semester — and you’ll save time and money if you get sick later.
  • Financial Wellness
    A Financial Wellness Coach can help you reduce financial stress and promote positive financial behaviors while sharing on- and off-campus resources that promote your financial well-being.
