Life and Learning Workshops

Life & Learning Workshops is UB's central resource for workshops that support student success in the classroom and beyond. UB Student Affairs, in partnership with Student Advising Services, the College of Arts & Sciences, International Student & Scholar Services and others, offers a wide variety of workshops.

Whether you're looking for helpful how-to information on managing your time or career, or the chance to develop a fun, new interest, Life & Learning Workshops is the place to go at UB. Most workshops are free to UB students, and they are offered at a variety of convenient times and locations.

Can my class, residence hall floor, or student organization, attend a workshop?
You may arrange for your group to attend one of the scheduled workshops listed in this website. If your group cannot make it to one of the scheduled sessions, many of the offices presenting these workshops will gladly provide customized workshops for groups associated with the university. If you are interested in either option, please contact us by email.

What is the cancellation policy?
If you are unable to attend a workshop that you are registered for, please notify us by e-mail. Occasionally, there is a change in a workshop time or location. In the event of such a change, every effort will be made to notify registrants. Should weather conditions cause the cancellation of classes at UB, workshops during that time will also be canceled.

Are there other non-Life & Learning workshops on campus? Yes, some units listed above offer additional workshops. Also the Libraries offer many workshops. View the UBEvents calendar for additional workshop offerings.
