Off-Campus Living and Community Relations

Moving off campus is a decision many of our students make, and being informed about moving off campus is crucial for their success. This site holds valuable information when considering moving off campus, tips once you have chosen to live off campus and information about neighborhood relations. 

Please visit the site for information about actions Buffalo State has taken to strengthen its role as a good neighbor in Buffalo's West Side community. We encourage you to help us achieve our “good neighbor” goals and to let us know your questions or concerns by contacting the Dean of Students Office in Campbell Student Union 311, by telephone at 716-878-4618, or by e-mail at


The Housing Registry

To assist current students, faculty, and staff with their off-campus housing search, Student Leadership and Engagement has secured The Housing Registry service. This database contains apartments and rooms for rent, as well as a roommate registry. The housing and roommate search features are available to the Buffalo State College community through the use of their college email. Property Owners, Rental Agents and non-members of the College community are invited to post their rental vacancies on The Housing Registry free of charge. Please read and follow the Posting Guidelines as they are strictly enforced. All postings must comply with the Fair Housing Act and all local, State and Federal rules and regulations.
