The world will come to you

Because UB is a microcosm of the world at large, life on campus is not only stimulating and fun, it’s also an important part of the learning process. With students and faculty from across the country and around the world, you’ll benefit and learn from the unique perspectives that they bring to campus.

Life at UB is part of the learning experience

Extracurricular activities not only help you make friends, they also offer valuable opportunities to learn and to lead. The Undergraduate Student Association supports more than two hundred academic, service-related, international, and multicultural clubs and organizations at UB. These organizations are a critical component of life and learning on campus, providing students with ways to get meaningfully involved with the issues of the day. The University Union Activities Board plans social events, programs daily films in the Student Union, and organizes the annual Spring Fest and Fall Fest concerts on campus. In addition, the university’s Distinguished Speakers Series brings renowned leaders to campus each semester. Recent visitors include Stephen Colbert, the Dalai Lama, Al Gore, Toni Morrison, Colin Powell, and Jon Stewart.

Living and learning communities

UB has many residential choices, including on-campus apartments and traditional residence hall living. UB also offers special housing areas for students who share similar interests. There are residence hall areas for first-year students, Academies-based residence hall communities, Honors and Daniel Acker Scholars communities, and areas for students who share the same academic major.

Just consider UB a small town that you can call home. If you’d like, you can even check out the latest statistics about safety on our campus.
