If you’re arriving by plane, train or bus, direct a taxi to bring you to the Ellicott Complex Residence Halls on the University at Buffalo’s North Campus. We will be in Wilkeson Quad.
If you are traveling by car via the New York State Thruway (I-90), take Exit 50 to I-290 West. Stay on I-290 to Exit 4 (I-990). Follow the signs for University at Buffalo, which is exit 1 off I-990. Exit 1 will bring you onto Audubon Parkway, the main road that encircles UB’s North Campus. Use the “turn-around” just before the traffic light, and travel north on Audubon. Continue straight through the traffic circle. Turn left at the traffic light, Frontier Road. Take the first left and park in the Spaulding Lot on your right. After parking, follow signs and staff direction to Wilkeson Quad where the check-in site will be located. Please note, students and family members attending orientation must park in Spaulding Lot.
If you are using a GPS device for navigation, enter the intersection John James Audubon Pkwy. and Frontier Rd., Amherst, NY 14228. The Spaulding Lot will be north of the intersection.
Maps of the UB campus are available online.
We will start and end the orientation program at Wilkeson Quad. Please note when planning your travel and allow plenty of time for arrival (program begins at 9:00 a.m.) and departure (program ends by 4:00 p.m.).
