UB's Physical Plan

One University

South Campus Quad.

UB will be one university on three campuses: better places, better connected and better equipped to support the work of discovery.

The campus master plan features a comprehensive ensemble of projects, policies and programs to make our campuses more beautiful and sociable, to connect them to each other and the community, and to support the fundamental work of teaching, learning and research.

We will highlight the character of each campus, create more magnetic public spaces, do a better job taking care of the campus “public realm” and revitalize campus landscapes. All of UB’s campuses need to be more comfortable, more inviting and truly more lovable.

We will better connect our campuses, creating new physical links to adjacent neighborhoods; broadening the options for transportation to, from, and between our campuses; and making sure that campus design, place-names and signage all support easy way-finding.

The plan includes new mixed-use spaces to promote interdisciplinary research, technology-equipped classrooms and a network of informal learning spaces to support the tendency of students to learn everywhere, and better facilities for dining, residence, athletics, recreation, arts and culture to enrich campus life.
