Our Mission

To maintain and enhance the quality of life within the University Heights by working with residents, property owners, block clubs, UB staff and students, law enforcement, business owners and elected officials in order to coordinate and develop resources and responsibilities within the community.


The University Heights is a unique, diverse, and affordable community located in the northeast corner of Buffalo. The Heights has seen incredible change since it’s original development in the early 20th century. It remains a highly walkable and dynamic neighborhood, with vibrant commercial districts filled with local small businesses, an eclectic mix of historic homes, a multitude of parks, and access to public transit.

Get Involved

The UHC is an umbrella organizations for the many block clubs in the neighborhood as well as acting as a sponsor for the Capen Garden Walk, University Community Farmers Market, and the University Heights Tool Library. Learn how you can get involved with these and other neighborhood initiatives.
