Former Vice President of the United States Joe Biden will be in Buffalo tonight giving a speech at UB.

The Former VP will take the stage at Alumni Arena as part of UB's Distinguished Speakers Series.

Doors for the event open at 6 pm and UB officials are warning people attending the event to arrive early due to security precautions.

Everyone who is attending the event will have to pass through metal detectors and all coats and large bags will be searched. This is expected to cause longer than normal delays entering the building.
