The best way to learn about life at Buffalo State is to come experience it yourself! We have many visit options for you to choose from listed below.
Please note that all guided tours scheduled through the Office of Admissions are coordinated to appeal to any visitor. All guided tours of campus include interior views of the E.H. Butler Library, the Campbell Student Union, select athletic facilities, a classroom, and a residence hall room at the conclusion of your tour (optional). We do not include specific academic departments or facilities during our walking tour that is approximately one hour and fifteen minutes in length.
If you are interested in speaking with specific Buffalo State faculty or viewing specific academic spaces (labs, studios, etc.) we encourage you to contact each academic department directly. To access contact information for a specific academic department or office, please visit our Undergraduate Program Directory.
