Student Housing Handbook

Welcome to your Community



You are now a member of a community dedicated to academic achievement, learning, and personal growth. The Department of Residence Life at the University of Alaska Fairbanks hopes to provide you the ability to enjoy and benefit from a vibrant learning environment, as well as grant you the opportunity to responsibly contribute to your community by keeping it safe, healthy, and enjoyable for all. Your residential environment will provide the opportunity to experience new concepts, different cultures, an active community, and a pleasant and comfortable living space. Our goal is that your learning experiences outside the classroom encourage and enhance the academic mission of the University. This handbook is designed to help you make the most of your time as a resident and understand the policies and standards that apply while you are living on campus. Please familiarize yourself with its contents as you are responsible for knowing and complying with this information. We hope you will get involved in your residential community; make it your “home away from home.” We are pleased that you chose to live on campus. Our staff is dedicated to making your living experience a positive and successful one. Best wishes for a successful year!
