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 if I require reasonable accommodations for a workshop because of a disability?
Please contact the presenting office as far in advance as possible.

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 check out workshops offered by the Libraries and graduate/professional student programs hosted by the Graduate School. View the UBEvents calendar for additional workshop offerings.
