What to Do
Performances, lecture series, gallery openings and events that
bring the community together: At UB, you’ll find a lot to do,
regardless of the time of year or how much money is in your pocket.
UB has more than a dozen residence halls, along with five campus

services to address smoking cessation, alcohol use, stress, and
