Whether you’re visiting UB from out of town or from across the city, we can help you plan your visit. Find out how to get here, where to stay, and what to do once you’re on campus. We want to make sure that your visit is productive and enjoyable.

Attend an Open House

Visit during a UB Open House or Discovery Day and take a guided tour of our facilities from one of our students.

 

Register for a SoPPS Information Session

If you cannot attend an open house, contact the UB SoPPS Office of Admissions and Advisement (716-645-2825 Option #1) to register for a SoPPS Information Session held 8:30am or 1:30pm on select Monday’s and Friday’s throughout the year.  Our SoPPS Information Session lasts about one hour. It is geared toward prospective pharmacy and pharmaceutical sciences students and is a great way to see all we have to offer. It includes an information session where you'll learn about the pharmacy and pharmaceutical sciences application processes, admission requirements, academic opportunities, professional experiences, and campus life; and, you’ll get answers to your questions. You'll also take a walking tour of classrooms and laboratories in our new building – John & Editha Kapoor Hall on UB’s historic South Campus. If you wish to tour the rest of the South Campus, you will be provided with a guide: Self-Guided Walking Tour of UB's South Campus.

 

Register for a "Visit UB Program"

Prospective freshman and transfers should also be sure to also register for a “Visit UB Program” on UB’s North Campus, offered by Undergraduate Admissions. You’ll attend an information session to learn about applying to UB, living on campus, financial aid, and scholarships and will take a walking tour of our North Campus, led by a student tour guide.  Interested students can also set up an appointment with the University Honors College. The most informative visit has guests attending both a SoPPS Information Session and the Visit UB Program.

 

Meet with a Peer Mentor

Current PharmD (doctor of pharmacy) and Pharmaceutical Sciences students are available to chat with prospective and current students. Consider this a great complement to meeting with your academic advisor. Please consider dropping by to say hello in 270 Kapoor Hall. Our Peer Mentors are excited and very willing to speak to you about getting involved, special programs, course selection, and other advice and tips.
