By the late 1990s the University was moving towards apartment-style dorms for both graduate and undergraduate students. The idea was for students to enjoy the independence of being in an apartment setting with all the convenience of being on campus, creating a "modern collegiate residence environment".
Creekside VIllagewas the University's first "green" housing development. It contains thirteen two-story residential buildings and its community building was constructed to meet the requirements for certification as a Leadership in Energy and Environmantal Design (LEED) building, the first of its kind in Western New York.
