UB is the premier public research university in the Northeastern United States and the largest and most comprehensive campus in the 64-campus SUNY system. We’re an established leader and are consistently recognized by top university guides and publications for our excellent value and high-quality academics.
The Buffalo-Niagara region is a major metropolitan area with a diverse blend of communities, each with its own distinct character and all united in a rich panorama of life.
Our region is characterized by a neighborly way of life, an unpretentious nature and spirited loyalty among residents. Those only familiar with the area’s snowy stereotype are immediately captivated by the region’s beauty, heritage, temperate climate and welcome feeling.
More than 260,000 UB alumni are making a difference in every state and 148 countries around the world. Among our celebrated graduates are the director of NASA’s Goddard Space Flight Center; the CEO of China’s largest search engine; the executive producer and host of NPR’s “Fresh Air”; the Washington Post’s Pulitzer Prize-winning editorial cartoonist; and the breakout star of Marvel Studios’ “Black Panther.” 
For the past 16 years, UB has been among the top 25 US institutions enrolling the largest number of international students. UB partners with 90 leading universities around the world and sends more than 600 students abroad each year.
