By far the greatest and largest service that we provide to the UB student body is the more than 160 clubs that any UB undergrad can join for FREE! The Student Association also produces events and sponsors university programs that directly affect your life. A few of these programs include:


  • Gala - Each semester we bring a much needed break to your finals schedule  by bringing you our Holiday and Spring Gala. Come dance the night away with dinner, music, and much more.
  • Concerts & Fests - SA's most recognizable event, and UB's largest concert series, Fest brings national touring artists to the UB undergraduates for free. Check out our past artist list here.
  • Comedy - For over a decade, SA has brought such big name comedians as Dane Cook, Dave Chapelle, Chris Rock, Trevor Noah, Louis CK, and Aziz Ansari. 
  • International Fiesta - Every year our clubs compete in a dance tournament designed to promote cultural diversity by encouraging clubs to present exhibitions that celebrate their cultural roots.
  • Carnival & Spirit Week - The oldest of SA's traditions is also one of the oldest traditions at UB. SA celebrates our homecoming game and school spirit with a FREE concert. A week's worth of events in and around the UB Student Union culminates in our Carnival, which includes a pep rally and a giant bonfire at the end of the night.
  • Student Activities - In cooperation with the university, SA brings you small events throughout the university, including variety shows, rides, games, contests, and much, much more.
