University at Buffalo, The State University of New York, also commonly known as the University at Buffalo (abbreviated UB) or SUNY Buffalo, is a premier public research university with multiple campuses located in Buffalo and Amherst, New York, United States. The university was founded in 1846 as a private college, but in 1962 was absorbed into the State University of New York (SUNY) system. By enrollment, UB is the largest of SUNY's four comprehensive university centers, and also the largest public university in the northeastern United States (comprising New York state and the New England region). In addition, by either endowment or research funding, UB is also the largest one of SUNY's four comprehensive flagship university centers.

UB's alumni and faculty have produced a U.S. President, a Prime Minister, astronauts, Nobel laureates, Pulitzer Prize winners, Emmy Award winners, Rhodes Scholars, and other notable individuals in their fields.
