When you’re a student at UB, you’re expected to dive in, go deep and try harder. But you’ll never be expected to do it alone. Our network of support is here to help you through every stage of your journey.
From the moment your student chooses UB, they become as much a part of our family as yours. Our family is dedicated to helping your student succeed — and we want you to feel supported as well. Here are some resources that will help your family navigate your student’s time at UB.
Office of Admissions
If you have questions about the college admissions process or admission to UB, the Office of Admissions has answers. Visit the parent and family page for more information.
Orientation, Transition and Parent Programs

Undergraduate Academic Advising
Every UB student is assigned to an academic advising center. Visit the Information for Parents page on the Undergraduate Academic Advising website to learn more about advising resources, tips for student success, FERPA (student privacy) and more.
