About Buffalo, NY


Though the name Buffalo, New York, may conjure up images of the majestic American Bison, the city was actually named by its French settlers for the beautiful river, or beau fleuve, that rolls through it. This upstate town was one of the country's early centers of industrialism, and though many of the factories have now closed, it's still a mecca for students, foodies, and nature lovers alike.

  • University at Buffalo

    The University at Buffalo, part of the State Universities of New York (SUNY) is the largest state school in the state of New York and the largest public university in the northeastern United States. It was founded as a private medical school back in 1846, when 13th US President Millard Fillmore served as chancellor of the school for many years. Now, SUNY Buffalo (or UB for short) has the only state-operated med school in New York. In addition to that, UB houses the only state-operated law, architecture, and pharmacy schools in the state. New York definitely has Buffalo’s back in terms of academia, so why not take advantage of the Empire State’s resources?

    Living Off-Campus at UB

    UB offers a few residence halls for its students, and all students are guaranteed housing if they choose to live on-campus. However, only 34% of the student body lives in student housing. The large majority of Buffalo students will tell you that they rent independently and will encourage you to do the same, because there are many rental options in the area surrounding Buffalo and Amherst. In Buffalo, students can find great apartments for cheap prices; Amherst generally offers nicer apartments, but you’ll pay for the upgrade. If you need help finding you new place, read our guides on apartment hunting to help you throughout this process.

    Local Atmosphere at UB

    UB has campuses in two locations (Buffalo and Amherst) that provide different experiences for the students. Buffalo is home to South Campus and the Downtown Campus, and has all the action in a city setting with a very diverse population. Example: all of the good bars in town are around these two campuses. The main campus (North Campus) is in Amherst, a suburb of Buffalo. This town is quieter and more residential, but a bit uneventful at night. The famous Niagara Falls is close to both, and worth visiting for the weekend.
