A view of UB's North Campus from Greiner Hall in the Ellicott Complex
North Campus UB’s bustling North Campus, the site of most of the university’s core academic programs, covers more than 1,192 acres and includes 11 residence halls, five apartment complexes, the UB Stadium and more. Located in Amherst, N.Y., which is consistently ranked one of the safest cities in the nation, North Campus is an exciting place to be, any time of the year.
Hayes Hall on UB's South Campus
South Campus The picturesque South Campus, located 3 miles from North Campus in a residential section of Buffalo, was the university’s first home. Here, ivy-covered buildings and a historic bell tower complement new research and teaching facilities.
Jacobs School of Medicine and Biological Sciences in Downtown Buffalo
Downtown Campus Home of the Jacobs School of Medicine and Biological Sciences, UB’s Downtown Campus aligns medicine, research and clinical care with local hospitals and research partners — right in the heart of the city’s medical corridor.
