Campus Locations

All UAS campuses are in coastal ocean communities; many of our programs take advantage of our locations for marine and maritime study and career opportunities.

Juneau is the state capital and the largest city in southeastern Alaska. The city offers a flourishing downtown business and arts scene, an extensive library system, and public transportation. As Alaska’s capital, Juneau sits at the epicenter of Alaska’s governmental and economic affairs.
Ketchikan is the first port of call for northbound cruise ships and state ferries, and is a center for commercial fishing and the maritime and timber industries.
Sitka has a rich heritage as a Tlingit village and the former capital of Russian America. A thriving fishing fleet, healthcare system, the U.S. Coast Guard and Forest Service call Sitka home.

Juneau

Offers housing and a traditional campus life experience as well as on-campus and online classes. With student activities, clubs, a recreation center, and residential halls and apartments, life on the Juneau campus could be considered comparable to attending a small private college.
