Your New Home On-Campus

Choosing a college is a very important decision, but deciding whether to live on or off campus can be just as important. There are numerous benefits to living on-campus, beyond simple convenience. Opportunities to develop friendships with other residents and connections with faculty and staff can be vital to creating a supportive network and resources in your education.

The Residence Life department’s goal is to provide a living environment that focuses on academic success. We do this by creating and maintaining comfortable homes for our students, through policies and procedures that encourage learning and studies, and by implementing programs and events that challenge our residents to reflect upon their growth.

Why live on-campus?

No Hidden Costs

Room and board cost includes all utilities, amenities, and services provided by Housing and Residence Life. This includes internet, access to cable TV, a staff that cares about your success, quality services and programming, and more.

We'll Cook for You

Though we have kitchens in Student Housing, sometimes it's nice to let someone else do the cooking. We have various meal plan options that can cover up to every meal you would eat a week. Menu options range from hot meals or a sandwich on the go to a morning cup of coffee before class. With multiple food options and locations, Dining Services is here to help you focus on your studies.

Make New Friends

Students who live on campus have more opportunities to become involved with study groups, events, and clubs. The more involved you are on campus, the more likely you'll learn from your experiences and be successful socially and academically, inside and outside of the classroom. These opportunities are just around the corner when living on campus, sometimes living right next door to you!

Academic Success

National research shows that students living on campus complete college in less time, have more contact with faculty, staff, and other students, are exposed to a wider range of ideas and cultures, and are challenged to develop strong interpersonal skills in comparison to their off-campus classmates.

Convenience

Walk to class or student services such as counseling, the UAS Learning and Testing Center, academic advising, health services, and more. Or enjoy easy access to campus life offerings such as dining services, student activities, and the Student Recreation Center. This is all possible without the need to fight traffic and winter driving conditions, without a long commute, and without having to pay for gas. The Juneau bus system also serves the UAS campus allowing you access to experiences within the greater Juneau community.
