From the first time a student steps on campus, Campus Life is here to support them, provide exceptional opportunities for them to get involved in the university community, and help them thrive outside of the classroom.

Discover. Experience. Learn.

Our goal is to help students discover their passions, experience the power of engagement, learn about themselves and others, and make amazing memories during their time on campus.

Social Media


Within Campus Life, there are a number of service areas that encourage and inspire involvement, leadership, diversity, pride, tradition, learning and self-development. These include:

Fraternity and Sorority Life

Fraternity and Sorority Life provides guidance and support for Greek life organizations at UB. Our goal is to serve as a resource for students, families and the entire UB community in regards to information and issues related to the UB Greek community.

Intercultural and Diversity Center

The Intercultural and Diversity Center (IDC) is committed to supporting all students on campus. Here, we create a strong sense of belonging by celebrating our differences as proudly as we celebrate our commonalities. By focusing on personal identity, advocacy and other critical issues that are facing society today, we help students broaden their perspectives and gain a deeper understanding of our ever-changing world.

The IDC supports the mission of the University at Buffalo and is committed to a safe and inclusive environment, ensuring equal employment, educational opportunity, and equal access to services, programs, and activities without regard to an individual's race, color, national origin, sex, religion, age, disability, gender, pregnancy, gender identity, gender expression, sexual orientation, predisposing genetic characteristics, marital status, familial status, veteran status, military status, domestic violence victim status, or ex-offender status.
