University at Buffalo North Campus – Buffalo, NY

Photos of North Campus in the Fall Photographer: Ariel NamocaCPSI takes place at the University at Buffalo North Campus, approximately 12 miles from downtown Buffalo. UB’s North Campus offers onsite amenities, including a new dining facility – the Crossroads Culinary Center (C3), comfortable and very affordable on-campus housing, numerous meeting rooms, free parking, and free Wi-Fi.

We will be providing information about on-campus housing in residence halls (where most participants stay), as well as off-campus hotels nearby.

If you want to be in the heart of the conference, staying in the residence hall on campus is the best option. Linens and towels are provided. Participants can choose from shared or single accommodation.

Griener Hall
