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.
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 255,000 UB alumni are making a difference in every state and 150 countries around the world. Among our celebrated graduates are NASA’s lead astronaut for medical issues; a former president of the American Medical Association; the former minister of education in the People’s Republic of China; the CEOs of J. Crew and A&E Television Network; and the Washington Post’s Pulitzer Prize-winning editorial cartoonist.
For the past 15 years, UB has been among the top 25 US institutions enrolling the largest number of international students. UB partners with 85 leading universities around the world and sends more than 600 students abroad each year.
