The State University of New York at Buffalo, commonly referred to as the University at Buffalo (UB), is a public research university with campuses in Buffalo and Amherst, New York, United States. The university was founded in 1846 as a private medical college and merged with the State University of New York system in 1962. Along with Stony Brook, it is a flagship institution of the SUNY system.[1][2] As of fall 2020, the university enrolls 32,347 students in 13 schools and colleges, making it the largest public university in the state of New York.[3]

Since its founding by a group which included future United States President Millard Fillmore, the university has evolved from a small medical school to a large research university. Today, in addition to the College of Arts and Sciences, the university houses the largest state-operated medical school, dental school, education school, business school, engineering school, and pharmacy school, and is also home to SUNY's only law school.[4] UB has the largest enrollment, largest endowment, and most research funding among the universities in the SUNY system.[5] The university offers bachelor's degrees in over 140 areas of study, as well as over 220 master's programs and over 95 doctoral programs, and 55 combined degree programs.
