Seating and Prices

Health and Safety

For our first distinguished speaker event on Oct. 13, attendees will be required to show proof that they have received at least one dose of a COVID-19 vaccine. For our Nov. 16 speaker event and onwards, attendees will be required to show proof that they are fully vaccinated. Individuals are considered fully vaccinated two weeks after their second dose in a two-dose series, or two weeks after a single-dose vaccine. A vaccination card, a photo of a vaccination card, an Excelsior Pass or a digital vaccine card are all acceptable. Attendees should be prepared to show photo ID as well. Face coverings continue to be required for all inside campus buildings. For children under 12 who are not vaccinated, they still may be admitted with a ticket, but must be masked at all times. View the announcement of this policy and check UB's website regularly for the latest health & safety guidelines
