On-Campus Undergraduate Housing

Housing at UAF is in high demand, so apply early!  Students who wish to live in undergraduate housing should apply at least one month prior to the move-in date.  Applications will be considered on a first-come, first-served basis; there is no guarantee that space will be available. To apply for housing, students must be enrolled in at least six (6) semester credits.  UAF encourages all students to apply for admission before applying for housing.

How to Apply for Housing 

STEP 1 // Download and Review Applications
Download the Residence Hall Application & Agreement. Review the documents carefully before filling them out to make sure you don't miss a step!

Fill out applications by hand or electronically using Adobe Acrobat. Make sure to print and sign all applications and forms. Residence Life will not process applications that are submitted without signatures. You will need Adobe Acrobat to open the application. For a free download of Adobe Acrobat click here.

STEP 2 // Submit Housing Application
Applications can be submitted in person at the Residence Life Central Office, by mail, by fax, or by email. All pages of the application must be completed and included for Residence Life to be able to process your submissions.  If you decide to have a land line connected to your campus room, make sure to fill out the Telephone Agreement on page 4 of the housing agreement.

Send your room deposit and your processing payment to the Residence Life Office.  UAF does not accept any payment information by mail or email.  You will receive written confirmation of acceptance and a receipt for your deposit.

Please Note: All UAF residence halls, with the exemption of the Sustainable Village, require residents to purchase a meal plan.  Please contact Dining Services at 907-474-6661, for dining application availability. If a student does not apply for a dining plan, they will automatically be assigned the default meal plan. Graduate students, regardless of their hall assignment, are not required to purchase a meal plan.

While we encourage all students to apply for admission to UAF, acceptance to UAF is not required to apply for housing. Once you have applied for housing, additional campus forms and information are available through Admissions.


Explore your housing options We have numerous housing options, choose to live in Stevens, Nerland, McIntosh, Wickersham, Bartlett, Skarland, Moore, Lathrop, the Cutler Apartment Complex, or the Sustainable Village. 


Assignments for the fall semester are made throughout the summer; spring semester assignments are made in late December and as received after winter break. You will be informed by letter as soon as a room assignment is made. All requests for specific rooms or halls are honored on a first- received, first placed basis as long as space is available and all eligibility requirements are met. Several of our more popular residence halls will have only a few spaces for new residents. We try to place you in the building of your choice, but this is not always possible. Please note on the application any request for a specific roommate. We cannot guarantee all requests.

  • DOUBLE-SHARED A room built for two and occupied by two
  • SINGLE A room built for one and occupied by one; limited availability
  • DOUBLE-SINGLE A room built for two but occupied by one; limited availability.

The cancellation policies specific to your agreement are available on the back page of your application, or page 2 of the online application. If you want to be released from your housing agreement then you need to cancel your housing assignment. Please complete the Housing Cancellation Form and/or Exception to Policy Form and send it to the Department of Residence Life at uaf-housing@alaska.edu
