College Life Rating

The student life at UB is very lively! There is always something going on in the Union or in the dorms so you are never bored. Its close to stores and restaurants. There is a club for everyone and everything. If you think of one, you can create a club of your own!

College Life Rating

Lots of clubs to select from and there is so much to do on campus. There are also a lot of restaraunts and the campus itself is pretty. I lived on the north campus but a lot of people lived on the south as well. There are also plenty of different options as to the type of housing that you'd like.
