Many students at UAF attend the university after having started a family of their own. To meet the family and educational needs of these students we have several facilities for married or financially inter-dependent couples or single parents with or without children. In these facilities we try to support our student families while they establish a family atmosphere within an educational environment. All of our family facilities are located on the main UAF campus on College Hill about 4 miles from downtown Fairbanks.
The Department of Residence Life offers one-bedroom, two-bedroom, and three-bedroom apartment complexes and single, duplex and triplex homes for students with families. Family Housing is available for married students, students with a financially inter-dependent partner, and students with children. Family housing agreement terms are usually for the length of the academic year. EFG housing agreement terms are typically for 12 months. Residence Life also provides housing for employees and their families. We offer apartments and duplexes for students with children and apartments for married students without children.
Staff and Programing
EFG units are staffed by an Area Coordinator and one or two Resident Assistants (RAs). The Area Coordinator coordinates, judicial hearings, maintenance and check-outs, along with other duties. The Resident Assistants are student members of the Department of Residence Life who live on campus and provide various services to the residents. The RAs also coordinate and facilitate activities for the residents in family housing. These activities may range from community BBQ's to art projects for kids.
According to research, on-campus students do better academically than their peers who live off-campus. Nationally, as well as at UAF, students who live on campus persist in school and have a higher graduation rate than those who do not. On-campus students find it easier to take advantage of academic assistance services and also get increased motivation by working alongside their peers.
Safety and Security
Residence halls are locked 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. Residents are issued a Polar Express card, which grants them entrance to their residence hall. Guests and visitors must be escorted at all times. Exterior entrances to halls are checked nightly by Security Officers. Professional Staff live in each building and Resident Assistants are on duty each night. Safety Awareness Programs and evacuation drills occur each semester.
Students are within walking distance of classrooms, Rasmuson Library, Wood Center Student Union, Dine49 Cafeteria, and the Student Recreation Center.
Living on campus is often more economical than living off campus. There is no worry about monthly bills - students pay only once a semester! Services such as high-speed internet, water, and electricity are included in this total cost.
Caring, trained, and professional staff care about each student's experience at UAF. Staff also provide resources, support, and programming to enhance the student experience.
Beginning in their freshman year, many students build their resume by working for Residence Life or other campus departments. Students learn problem-solving skills and sustainable practices to follow as they are encouraged to take personal responsibility for their community.
On-campus students get the opportunity to interact on a deeper level with a diverse group of their peers, forming friendships and memories that last a lifetime.
