Fall 2020 Opening Announcement

Housing is pleased to announce availability for Fall 2020!

In order to offer a safe and sustainable on campus living experience this fall, UAS will be reducing the number of students who can live on campus. We will place up to two students per unit (apartment or suite), and reserve some housing for quarantine purposes. All students will be provided a private bedroom at no additional cost. If you have not applied for student housing for Fall 2020, and would like to be considered for placement, please reach out to us directly at the Student Housing Lodge. Currently our applications are closed but we can add you to a waitlist. 

In order to open for Fall 2020 UAS Housing will be expected to comply with State of Alaska travel and health mandates. This has important implications for move-in. If you will be arriving from out of state, please review the State of Alaska's travel guidance carefully. You will be held to these expectations by UAS.

To learn more about Testing and Student Status when you arrive on campus, visit the Testing and Quarantine webpage.


August 20th or later

Move-In begins on August 20, 2020. Students are required to obtain a molecular-based test for COVID-19 either prior to a move into campus housing or within 24 hours of their arrival. Once you have received the results of your first test, you will be asked to continue minimizing interactions or quarantine for 7-10 days until a second negative test is received, which will result in reduced access to UAS facilities and services. Students are highly encouraged to disclose this requirement with their faculty prior to the beginning of classes so that accommodations can be made if necessary. 

If you arrive without a test, UAS will place you in a quarantine unit on campus when necessary until you can complete at least 1 negative COVID test. Each student will receive a determination at time of their arrival regarding whether they will be able to move into their permanent fall placement or if they will need to be temporarily placed within quarantine housing units.

Please note: If you receive a positive COVID-19 test result, the State of Alaska expects that you will not travel and will instead observe a self-quarantine in place. Do not travel to Juneau or UAS Housing. Please notify UAS Housing of your positive test so that we can assist you with connecting with faculty and support networks at UAS via distance. 

Fall 2020 Restrictions and Policies

In order to ensure student housing is a safe and secure living environment during the COVID-19 pandemic, additional restrictions and policies will apply to all Housing residents. By accepting your application and moving on to campus you are indicating that you will comply with these policies. Please review the COVID-19 policies and restrictions page carefully.
