UAF is here for you too

The college decision is an important one, and we realize that parents need to have just as much information about an institution as their son or daughter.

We look forward to helping your student achieve his or her academic goals and explore the possibilities of the Last Frontier — where inspiration is around every bend, independence is championed, and adventure is inevitable.

Health and safety

UAF Health and Counseling services
The mission of the UAF Student Health and Counseling Center is to help all UAF students stay healthy, grow and develop personally and do as well as they can in their university studies. Health and Counseling offers multiple services right on campus including medical care and counseling with the student insurance plan.

Safety
UAF boasts an extremely safe campus with our own police force right next door to the UAF residence halls. For more information about safety, crime statistics and the campus police visit the UAF Police website. The UAF police force offers several safety services including police escorts, and Parking Services offers vehicle jumpstarts.
