  • + amount for off-campus (with family) room, board and other expenses * # of students living off-campus with family
  • + amount for off-campus (not with family) room, board and other expenses * # of students living off-campus not with family)
divided by the total # of students. Students whose living arrangements are unknown are excluded from the calculation.

What Students Are Saying

3.92 Average Rating
SUNY UB makes the transition from High School to College easy with their many opportunities for clubs and other fun activities. UB's classes are challenging, yet very informative and most professors really do try and help students. There are plenty of majors to choose from, especially considering that they all have graduate programs as well, which really opens the doors for plenty of opportunities.
