Live on Campus at UAS-Juneau
Are you looking for the complete college experience?
Some place where you can be close to campus, have a quiet place to study, yet be able to participate in lots of activities and interact with other students?
Then the UAS-Juneau Campus Student Housing is the place for you! Living on campus allows you to participate in all aspects of campus life, and will help you achieve the fullest experience at UAS.
