A brief description of the institution’s main campus and other aspects of the institutional boundary used to complete this report:

Pride of Place:North Campus (Amherst, New York - 1,077 acres, 125 buildings); South Campus (Buffalo, New York - 153 acres, 49 buildings); Downtown Campus (Buffalo, New York - 19 buildings). UB’s North Campus, where most of the university’s core academic programs are offered, is located in suburban Amherst. Opened in the early 1970s, it is the largest of our three campuses. Its 125 buildings include state-of-the-art academic and research spaces, student residence halls and apartments, the Student Union, athletic venues and administrative offices. Complementing the built environment are abundant green spaces, Lake LaSalle and Letchworth Woods. UB’s South Campus on Main Street is a Western New York landmark dating back to the 1920s. Situated in a residential neighborhood in North Buffalo, the 154-acre parcel is home to classic ivy-covered buildings, as well as residence halls and cutting-edge research and teaching facilities. The schools of Architecture and Planning, Dental Medicine, Public Health and Health Professions, and Nursing are located here. The pillar of our growing Downtown Campus is the Jacobs School of Medicine and Biomedical Sciences, which moved there in 2017 following construction of a state-of-the-art building at Main and High streets. Most of our other Downtown Campus entities are also located on or near Buffalo’s medical corridor, a lively hub of clinical care, research and educational institutions in the heart of the city. They include the New York State Center of Excellence in Bioinformatics and Life Sciences, the Research Institute on Addictions, and the Clinical and Translational Research Center.


Which of the following features are present on campus and which are included within the institutional boundary?:
Present? Included?
Agricultural school No No
Medical school Yes Yes
Other professional school with labs and clinics (e.g. dental, nursing, pharmacy, public health, veterinary) Yes Yes
Satellite campus Yes No
Farm larger than 5 acres or 2 hectares No No
Agricultural experiment station larger than 5 acres or 2 hectares No No
Hospital No No

The rationale for excluding any features that are present from the institutional boundary:

UB does not have an agricultural school, an agricultural experiment station, or farm. UB does not own a hospital. The New Jacobs School of Medicine & Biomedical Sciences built at the UB downtown campus is adjacent to three area hospitals collectively known at the Buffalo Niagara Medical Campus.
