Stay Late and Finish Strong

Final Finish is coming!

Wednesday, November 28

6:00pm – 12:00am

The end of the semester brings a level of stress that can make even the most conscientious students feel alone. But you don’t have to do this by yourself. The RLB library has your back.

Every semester, the library designates one special day to stay open extra late and support students as they prepare for finals week. We call this Final Finish, and it has become something of a UB tradition over the last couple of years. At Final Finish, you can get any kind of academic support you need to end your semester with the kind of grades you know you are capable of. The kind of grades that make employers look twice when you list them on your resume. The kind of grades you can brag about on social media.


At Final Finish, we pull out all the stops, give away amazing swag, and provide free study snacks, coffee, and food for UB students. This fall, the first 40 students who have an appointment with a Writing Consultant, Tutor, or Reference Librarian will get a commemorative winter hat, great for getting you through the next Nor’Easter, or even just getting you through the next hour in the chilly library.

If you’re already planning to come to Final Finish, great! You can make an appointment to work with a tutor in Math, Statistics, or another subject, or you can schedule a time to work with a Writing Consultant or Reference Librarian by visiting the Appointment Tool. You don’t need to make an appointment, however. We can put you on the schedule in person at the event as well!

Final Finish is a one-stop shop for all the academic support you might need to get those projects, papers, and exams in the books. But you can also study quietly on your own, join a mindfulness workshop, or just come for the food. We’ll be ready to answer your questions as they arise. Remember, you’ve got support at the RLB library.
