Log on to find information regarding your schedule, finances, activities, important campus announcements, news headlines, etc. MyUB offers links to help students reach the information they're looking for. On the top toolbar you will see links to UBMail, UBLearns, and the HUB Student Center (via MyUB).

Note that many professors/staff automatically send out information to UB email, and some may even refuse to recognize a non-UB email address.
