Some of the School of Architecture and Planning's most vulnerable students—those who rely on the university for food, income or housing—are experiencing significant hardship due to the current crisis. The School of Architecture and Planning's Student Emergency Fund helps to ensure these basic needs are met.
Give today to the School's emergency fund and make an immediate, tangible impact on students in need.
"On behalf of the entire faculty in real estate development, I encourage others to give what they can to support our students during this difficult time so that they can focus and excel academically."
- V. Jeffrey LiPuma, senior fellow and adjunct professor, real estate development
Students in the School of Architecture and Planning are eligible to apply for one-time limited financial support. Funds are available to meet unexpected needs that result from circumstances beyond the control of our students. The emergency fund is designated to offset short-term financial need related to COVID-19, and is not intended to replace or supplement financial aid or scholarships. Award and distribution is subject to availability of funds.
Specific support has been made available to students in the real estate development program due to the generous support of Jeffrey LiPuma on behalf of the school's entire real estate development faculty. These funds are targeted to students in the real estate development program. Please submit a request for assistance via the link below.
Through a partnership with the Student Association, UB offers Blue Table, a virtual food pantry service for UB students who do not have access to food.
