Welcome to the first steps of becoming a Buffalonian!

In order to ease your transition into your new life as a medical student, we have created this website so that now you have all of the information you need at your fingertips!

Also, on behalf of Medical Student Polity, the medical student government here at UB, I would like to invite you to the Housing Weekend we host every year for incoming first-years looking for apartments in Buffalo. The date the weekend is held changes every year, but you will receive a packet with instructions regarding dates, and how to sign up.

The purpose of Housing Weekend is to facilitate your search for safe and comfortable housing here in Buffalo for the upcoming school year. You will also have the opportunity to meet your future classmates, look for a roommate, and get advice from current students here at UB.

If you are from the area or would just like to come and get acquainted with the area where you will be spending the next four years, I hope that you will join us anyway for a fun-filled weekend.

Housing packets will be sent out to you several months in advance, they will have information about deadlines for registering for the event, please return your registration form by the deadline listed. Please follow the directions on the form, you may send it in as soon as you know if you will be attending the event. Make sure you don’t miss the deadline.

If you have any questions or concerns feel free to email us at ubpolity@gmail.com. As more information about housing becomes available, I will pass it along to you.

Congratulations and Welcome!
