The University at Buffalo is New York’s premier public center for graduate and professional education and the state’s largest and most comprehensive public university. As a research-oriented institution, the University at Buffalo supports faculty working at the forefront of such diverse fields as nutrition and chronic illness, earthquake damage mitigation, the neurophysiology of hearing, assistive technology for elderly and disabled people, the relationship between periodontal disease and systemic health, bioinformatics, photonics, and structural biology
The university has two major campuses. The South Campus, home of the School of Nursing, is located in the northeast corner of Buffalo. The university’s main campus for most of the twentieth century, the South Campus is now its health-sciences campus. The most recent addition is a $54 million medical research facility.
UB’s North Campus, located four miles from the South Campus in suburban Amherst, houses most of the university’s non-health-sciences divisions. Convenient shuttle bus service connects the university’s two campuses. Buffalo’s rapid transit system connects the South Campus with downtown and the waterfront.
