Getting Ready for the New School Year
For New UB Students: Submit Immunization Records to Student Health Services
In order to comply with New York State Public Health law, new students must provide proof of immunity against measles, mumps, and rubella. It also requires that all students receive information about meningococcal disease and make an informed decision about whether to receive immunization against the disease. Send the required health information via fax to 716-829-2564. You will not be able to register for classes until you have fulfilled the requirements. More information can be found on the Immunization & Meningitis Requirements page.
For All UB Students: Prepare to Live More Independently
Students who are living away from their home need to have first aid supplies and medical information in order to take care of themselves. Student Health Services recommends that each UB student put together a health care kit for their own personal use. List of suggested items: PDF (95KB) | Word (45KB)
For All UB Students: Medical Care Options when Student Health Services is Closed
Life-Threatening Medical Emergencies
Any time you have a medical emergency, call 716-645-2222 (if you are on-campus) or 911 (if you are off-campus).
For urgent medical concerns at times when UB Student Health Services is CLOSED, please call 716-829-3316 and listen to the phone message; you will be given instructions for how to reach the after-hours nurse. This nurse will provide medical care advice and assistance over the phone.
If you need urgent (but NOT EMERGENCY) medical care when UB Student Health Services is closed, you may want to visit a local urgent care facility. We advise you to check with your insurance company regarding coverage before you go to one of these centers as the cost for care at these locations is your responsibility.

UB has a partnership with MASH Urgent Care to provide UB students with free transportation to MASH Urgent Care locations when UB Student Health Services is closed. The free transportation is available from 5pm - 9pm Monday - Friday, and 8:30am-9pm Saturday and Sunday. Students should call 716-701-6331 to arrange a pick up by the MASH van.
