With the evolving COVID-19 situation, our staff is here to help you through this unprecedented time. Listed below are some updates regarding Student Life operations and resources for the spring 2020 semester.
Updated March 26, 2020
UBIT has sent instruction on how to test the ability of your personal computer to connect to UB and your online courses as well as information about free software and other helpful IT tools.
We have organized live, drop-in, sessions via Collaborate to assist students with the transition to remote course instruction. The goal of these sessions is to provide another resource to go to for questions about the basics of online/remote course delivery, successful strategies for participation, encouragement to engage, and even to address fears/concerns.
SUNY personnel will help to quickly address common questions about participation in online/remote courses, technical support for remote access to courses, and referrals to campus resources.
Hours of Operation:
The SUNY Learning at a Distance Resource Website features:
Campus operations such as health services, libraries, transportation, and campus safety, will continue. But due to the uncertain nature, please check directly with service providers for their latest hours of operation.
We understand that these developments may cause concern, stress or anxiety. Please know that you have many sources of support here on campus, including counseling services and crisis resources, as well as online information about mental well-being.
If you are experiencing a hardship due to these unexpected changes, UB is here to help. Contact Student Conduct and Advocacy for support resources.
Student employees, including student assistants and work-study participants, should consult their supervisors for guidance regarding any modifications to regular duties - and before returning to campus worksites.
