What is UBLinked?

Get involved! UBLinked is a central hub of everything pertaining to campus activities. It provides an easy and convenient way to explore, connect with, and learn more about the various clubs, organizations, and offices on campus. This platform also serves as a means to track your participation at different events throughout the year and create a comprehensive resume, also known as a co-curricular transcript, with all of the activities you were involved with.

Getting Started

Getting started on UBLinked is simple for currently enrolled students: using your UBIT name and password, log-in in the upper right hand corner of the UBLinked page: ublinked.buffalo.edu External Site Link Icon
(About UBITname/password External Site Link Icon )

Located on the homepage is a virtual event flier board that displays all of the events created by different clubs and organizations on campus.

Click on your name in the upper left hand corner of your page. Under this tab you are able to edit your profile and interests. Once you designate your interests, start joining organizations to get up-to-date information on events! Also by your name is the "My Involvement" tab. Under this section, you can see UBLife, your co-curricular transcript.

  • What is UBLife? UBLife is the co-curricular record listing experiences you have had outside of the classroom during your time at UB. It is a document that compliments your Academic Transcript by defining key engagement experiences, otherwise referred to as Pillar Experiences. These experiences help enhance your academic record and provide insight to your involvement on campus.
  • What is a Pillar Experience? Pillar Experiences are events, workshops, student employment, service, or other opportunities that are high-impact experiences. In order to be classified as a Pillar Experience, it must have a learning outcome, be a substantive interaction in or out of class, deepen understanding of self or others, connect in-class and out-of-class learning, and be non-credit bearing.
  • Register your organization! Once logged into UBLinked, you can register your organization (if you haven't done so already). Click on organizations under the main banner. On the left hand side of the screen click on "Register a New Organization."

  • How do I make my event a Pillar Experience? In order to create a Pillar Experience, it must meet the criteria set by the University. There are five components the event needs to encompass:
    • Must have a clear learning outcome
    • Cannot offer academic credit
    • Must be a substantive interaction, in class or out of class with peers, faculty and/or staff
    • Can be a common experience that deepens understanding of self or others
    • Must be an opportunity to connect in-class and out-of-class learning
    If your event meets these criteria, create the event through UBLinked for your organization. Part of the event creation form will ask if you want the event to be considered for a Pillar Experience. Just click "Yes" and fill out the additional information so it can be properly evaluated.
