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.

As of 2012, the university currently enrolls 28,601 students in 13 separate colleges. The university houses the largest state-operated medical school and features the only state law school,architecture and urban planning school, and pharmacy school in the state of New York. The university offers over 100 bachelor's, 205 master's, 84 doctoral, and 10 professional areas of study.

According to the Carnegie Classification of Institutions of Higher Education, the University at Buffalo is a Research University with Very High Research Activity (RU/VH). In 1989, UB was elected to the Association of American Universities, which represents 62 prestigious, leading research universities in the United States and Canada. 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.

Buffalo has consistently placed in the top cluster of U.S. public research universities and among the overall top 30 research universities according to the Center for Measuring University Performance and was ranked as the 38th best value for in-state students and the 27th best value for out of state students in the 2012 Kiplinger rankings of best value of national universities. U.S. News and World Report's 2013 edition of America's Best Colleges ranked UB 106th on their list of "Best National Universities," and 51st among public universities.
