Before You Participate in Summer Orientation

  • Access your UB Zoom premium account. This is a premium account that you’ll need in order to access your Summer Orientation live sessions. To do this, you’ll select “Sign in with SSO” when given the option instead of signing into Zoom with Google, Facebook, or even just entering your @buffalo.edu email. Learn more about using your UB Zoom account.
  • Join the Slack channel for new students. You will be sent instructions in June for how to join.
  • Review the orientation schedule mailed to you in June and make your plan for which session(s) you'll attend.
