If you need mental health support during this stressful time, please visit the UB Student Life Mental/Emotional Well-Being webpage or contact UB Counseling Services at 716-645-2720 to schedule a same-day appointment.

UB has also created a helpful tip sheet for managing COVID-19 anxiety.

Food Support

If you are struggling to buy groceries, UB has some Food Support resources to assist with this:

  • Consider using UB’s Blue Table, all enrolled students are welcome – place orders online and pick up your order in the Student Union (with a valid Student ID). You can order online using the Blue Table support form.
  • The United Presbyterian Church Food Pantry across the street from the South Campus provides food items for students and residents who are in need. You can find more information on the UPC Food Pantry website.
  • You may be eligible for the Supplemental Nutrition Program (SNAP) SNAP issues monthly electronic benefits that can be used like cash to purchase food at authorized retail food stores. COVID-19 relief has softened eligibility for students (students eligible for work study or who have  expected family contribution (EFC) of $0 on their FAFSA form may be eligible).
