Student Housing Master Plan

Starting in summer 2017, the University of Buffalo initiated a comprehensive student housing master plan across its three campuses. We are committed to better understanding the most appropriate and efficient use of all current and future campus student living space. The need to provide a memorable UB living experience for our students during their education is a fundamental aspect of the UB student experience.  The housing master plan study will:

  1. Assess our existing conditions
  2. Study the market realities of our area
  3. Develop a strategic vision for student housing; and
  4. Make recommendations on future steps. 

To operationalize this effort, a committee has been functioning under the leadership of Tonga Pham, associate vice president for facilities.

The final report is due from the consultants during the fall 2018 semester.
