UB's campus master plan serves as the physical manifestation of the university's emergence as a premier 21st-century public research university.
Across its three campuses, UB has developed and modernized facilities to support the growth of research in its strategic strengths and to enhance the student experience in classrooms, labs, libraries, dining and residence halls and recreational spaces.
The university's living-learning landscape has been transformed by the following new and renovated facilities:
Due to record enrollment in the School of Engineering and Applied Sciences, UB is planning to construct a new, $102 million engineering building on the North Campus. During her 2022 State of the State address, Governor Kathy Hochul announced funding for this transformational project.
Over the last decade, the school has seen a 60% increase in undergraduate enrollment and 110% increase in graduate enrollment.
Over the next several years, UB has plans to build a new wellness and recreation center on the North Campus to house Health Services, Counseling Services, Health Promotion as well as numerous recreation spaces.
With tentative plans to complete the new wellness and recreation center by 2026, UB has temporarily moved UB's Health Services to a 13,000 square foot space on Maple Road in Amherst in order to provide more comprehensive health care to students. This space also includes an in-house pharmacy.
