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.

Residence Life

UAF’s residence halls are some of the best in the state, and they are the only residence halls in the nation that boast a view of the Alaska Range and Denali, the highest peak in North America.


UAF offers many different dining locations for Fairbanks residential and commuter students. Wood Center’s Dine 49 facility has several types of fare, including Mongolian grill, homestyle meals, deli sandwiches and wraps, pizza and pasta, and a salad bar. At Arctic Java students enjoy late-evening service and special events and programs on the coffee house stage. Other retail options available at Wood Center are sushi and favorites off the grill.
