North Campus Buildings
The University at Buffalo's North Campus is located almost exactly in the center of the town of Amherst, NY approximatly 3.5 miles from South Campus on the northeast edge of Buffalo, NY. In the mid 1960s, the University was quickly outgrowing its 178-acre campus which was once the grounds for the Erie County Almshouse and County Hospital. After a few unsuccessful attempts to aquire land for a new campus in downtown Buffalo, the University looked to to the surrounding suburbs. Nelson Rockefeller, then governor of New York, helped the University acquire 2,000 acres in Amherst and on October 1968 the University began the intensive planning for the newly-acquired land.
In July 1970, the State University Construction Fund and architectural design firm Sasaki, Dawson, Demay & Associates, Inc. published The Campus Plan in two volumes, which outlined in great detail the vision for the new campus.
