Students at UB's Orientation

Welcome to UB!

All new students will participate in the New to UB experience, which includes Spring or Summer Orientation, Welcome Weekend and Year One. The steps on the left will help you officially and fully prepare for life as a UB student.

At your on-campus orientation, you will learn about academics and campus life at UB, while meeting other new students as well as current UB students. You will also begin to navigate campus and complete final tasks to get you closer to a successful start at UB!

  • For students entering UB in the fall semester, we host several on-campus orientation programs throughout the summer. You will receive detailed information about orientation in the mail after you submit your tuition deposit and/or intent to enroll card beginning in March. Our website is undergoing construction this winter, you'll be directed to a new site in March 2019.
  • For students entering UB in the spring semester, we host four on-campus orientation programs in December and January. After you submit your tuition deposit and/or intent to enroll card, you will receive detailed information via email, beginning in October.
