All UB students can reserve their on-campus housing in just 3 simple steps!

Step New/Incoming (to UB) Students* Current/Returning (to UB) Students
1 Submit your Housing & Tuition Deposit: Housing Assignments for new/incoming students are done based on the date you submit your tuition & housing deposit. If you make the deposits separately, the later deposit date will be used. (Note: Graduate students may not need to submit a tuition deposit) Submit your Housing Deposit: Students must deposit before February 6. Please note: assignments are not based on the date of deposit.
2 Enter your Housing Preferences: Shortly after submitting your deposits, you will be sent instructions on how to enter room & roommate preferences. Students can add/change preferences until May 15. Review your Housing Selection Information: You will be sent information on how to select your on-campus housing. This information will include your housing reservation number as well as your selection window/appointment time for each process.
3 Review your Housing Assignment: In early July, all students who submitted both a housing & tuition deposit will be able to log into the housing website to view their room assignment. Assignments will be made based on preferences submitted and deposit date. Go online & select your on-campus housing: All students who submit by the appropriate deadline will be guaranteed the opportunity to self-select their own on-campus housing. This includes choosing your own room & roommate. NOTE: Eligible students interested in graduate/non-traditional housing in Flickinger Court, Creekside Village & Flint Law areas will be contacted about a separate process.
