Feel the Buffalove!
We’re not the land of ice and snow (though we have that, too!). We’re a big city with a small-town feel with four beautiful seasons, friendly neighbors, and exciting things to do. Buffalo is the second-largest city in New York state and is always changing. Welcome to the City of Good Neighbors.
Our 125-acre campus is very accessible, walkable, and located between two culturally-rich sections of Buffalo's West Side: The Elmwood Village Museum District and Grant Street neighborhood. The college is surrounded by cafés, museums, restaurants, shops, and parks.
Buffalo boasts commercial, residential, and institutional buildings from some of the most revered architects in American history. The H.H. Richardson-designed Richardson Olmsted Campus looms large on Buffalo State's landscape.
Like Buffalo's architecture, the city's lush parks are steeped in history. Designed by landscape architect Frederick Law Olmsted, Delaware Park is located directly across the street from campus and offers a green getaway for relaxation, exercise, and rejuvenation.

Buffalo's cuisine offers something for every palate. From its world-famous chicken wings to local specialties like beef on weck, the city offers a full menu.
Everybody knows that Buffalo gets snow in the winter, but most don't realize that the bulk of the white stuff falls south of the city proper. That's where world-class skiing, skating, and sledding can be found. Some avoid the winter, Buffalo embraces it!
