Freshman Hall

Freshman Housing typical room floor layoutOur new freshman residence hall will be opening Fall 2014. This facility is located directly on-campus, with amazing views of Auke Lake, Mendenhall Glacier, and the numerous mountains, trees, and wildlife that surround the Juneau campus. With 120 bed spaces spread out across four floors of two bedroom, suite-style units, this building will be a hub of activities, social connections, and access to educational services on-campus.

In addition to resident units, this 34,000 square foot facility offers lounge spaces, study nooks, a seminar/classroom, community kitchen, laundry facilities, student mailboxes, and interior access to garbage and recycling disposal. A front desk location will not only allow for monitoring of student and guest access to this swipe-card access secured building, but also be a source of information and referral for residents.

Banfield Hall

The three story, 18,000 square foot Banfield Hall sits on a wooded hillside in the UAS student housing complex. In the distance, across the tops of spruce and hemlock trees, the Juneau Icefield looms as a reminder that this is an Alaskan campus.

Banfield Hall floor layoutThe coed hall has 42 rooms. Each room holds two students. Two rooms are joined into a suite for four, same sex students who share a common entry vestibule and bathroom. The vestibule contains a small refrigerator and microwave. Each room is wired for cable TV, phone and computers and students may choose those services on their own.

Modular furniture allows options for room arrangement schemes. Each bed can be lofted. The specially designed, wood grained desks and dresser can be placed beneath the beds to save floor space. Heat is regulated within each room. All UAS housing is non-smoking and pets are not allowed.

Banfield Hall was designed for social interaction while incorporating the privacy of a suite. Each student has a single, personal key that opens suite door and shared bedroom door.

There are several common areas in Banfield Hall including a cozy lounge with three-story, full length windows overlooking the nearby forest. There is also a study room, laundry room, kitchenette and television room.
