Anniversary of the Hayes Hall Clock Tower chimes.

Celebrating UB’s favorite bells

July 19 is a special day for one of UB’s most iconic buildings. It marks the anniversary of the bells in the clock tower in Hayes Hall on the South Campus. The bronze bells’ stately sound has rung across campus every quarter-hour since July 19, 1928, except for a few years starting in 2011 when Hayes Hall was renovated.
