The University of Alaska Fairbanks is a world-class institution that thrives on creative interaction between students, faculty, the local community, and the world. Our campus is alive with possiblities from our 24hr midnight summer sun to our signature -40 below winters. By living on campus you have friends next door, zero commute to class, and plenty of activities to join in — you are in the center of the action.

Living on campus not only is convenient and affordable, it's a great way to find a home within the university community. UAF's residence halls vary in size from the 320-resident Moore Hall to the Sustainable Village with just 16-residents. When campus is at your doorstep, the only thing you need to do is step outside.
