Choosing a college is a very important decision and deciding whether to live on or off campus can be just as important. The living and learning environment of Student Housing can be a source of further support, social connection, and personal development for students seeking a comprehensive college experience.
The UAS Juneau campus offers a variety of on-campus housing options, all convenient to class locations, campus services, and recreational opportunities. Students are encouraged to explore the many benefits of living on campus via the housing website.
Options and Rates
Please visit the options and rates section of the housing website to explore housing options and floor plans and view current year rates.

Basic utilities including water, electricity, wireless internet, garbage, heat, snow removal, and parking are included in the housing rate.

Students residing in on-campus housing are expected to maintain a minimum 2.00 GPA and show record of current immunizations (contact Housing Office for a complete list).
The student housing complex is staffed by live-in professional and paraprofessional student staff. The Associate Director of Residence Life, First Year Experience Advisor, and the Residence Life Coordinator are highly trained professional staff members who administer facilities, serve as resources to students, and provide live-in on-call response. They also supervise Community Advisors (CA's), the primary student staff contact for housing residents. CA's act as mentors and resources for residents and promote the welfare of the housing community. CA's receive extensive training both prior to residents’ arrival and throughout the academic year, making them valuable resources to residents in Housing.
Residents of the student housing complex share the Student Housing Lodge. The facility provides a commons area with a fireplace, classroom, residence life offices, and television lounge. The building also houses a large laundry facility and secured gun storage area for residents who wish to store firearms on campus. The Bear’s Pantry convenience store is located on the lower level. The Lodge is the site for many social and educational activities. A community pavilion with grills, a playground, and a basketball court is located outside of the Lodge. Residence Hall students have access to study and social lounges, kitchens, and laundry facilities on site in their respective halls.
Students are encouraged to apply early, as housing facilities fill quickly. An application is not considered complete until a non-refundable $25 application fee and the $300 deposit is received, signed housing agreement is returned, proof of immunization has been verified, and a Criminal History Form is provided.
Assignments to student housing are made prior to the start of each semester. Students with completed applications will be informed via email of the details of their assignment by July 15th for fall contracts and December 15th for spring. Assignments are made in the order that applications are confirmed complete. A completed application consists of a signed housing agreement, deposit and application fee, and proof of current immunizations. All efforts will be made to honor special housing requests such as roommate preferences when received by the advertised contract deadline.
The Housing and Residence main office is located in the Housing Lodge at 4300 University Drive, Juneau, Alaska 99801.
