Buffalo State students

✴️COVID-19 (Coronavirus) update

We continue to monitor the Coronavirus 2019 (COVID-19) outbreak in consultation with public health professionals and are taking steps to protect the campus community and future SUNY Buffalo State College students.

One of those steps is to limit large gatherings. Therefore, we have cancelled all on-campus and off-campus Admissions events including information sessions, tours and admitted student open houses.

Our admission staff are currently working from home, but they're still ready to help answer any questions you have about the admissions and enrollment process!

We provide up-to-date information on the rapidly evolving situation on our website, Coronavirus 2019 (COVID-19).

We have created a number of virtual options to keep our students informed, including live information sessions, video chats, one-on-one with an admissions staff member, virtual tours of campus and more!

All Admissions Virtual Options>>


Our 125-acre campus is very accessible, walkable, and is located in Buffalo's vibrant museum district.

Buffalo State is surrounded by trendy cafés, museums, restaurants, shops, parks, and Victorian-styled housing. Accessible by car or bus, the campus is approximately 20 minutes from the Buffalo Niagara International Airport. Directions to campus.

As SUNY’s only urban four-year college, Buffalo State has a mission that grows directly from our location. We serve the city because we are of the city.
