Welcome Weekend Overview

Welcome Weekend is the official kick-off to the fall semester for new students. During Welcome Weekend, you will prepare for academics at UB, explore UB resources and connect with other students. 

Welcome Weekend is an on-campus experience from Thursday, August 25, through Sunday, August 28; classes begin Monday, August 29. New students will move in on Thursday, August 25; you will receive more specific information about move-in from Campus Living.

Welcome Weekend is a semi-structured experience, meaning first-year students will have some requirements that are assigned, in addition to several opportunities to choose what is most important to you. All new first-year and transfer students are highly encouraged to participate in the weekend's events. 

We cannot wait to welcome you to UB and help you plan for a successful first semester!

Check back in May for more details about Welcome Weekend in 2022 including a schedule overview. For now, save the dates and plan ahead to be on campus for Welcome Weekend.
