On-Campus Undergraduate Housing
Housing at UAF is in high demand, and not all applicants can be guaranteed space on campus. Students wishing to live in undergraduate housing are advised to apply at least a month proir to the date of move-in. Later applications will be considered on a first-come, first-served basis and there is no guarantee space will be available. Students applying for housing should be enrolled in a minimum of six (6) semester credits. UAF encourages all students to apply for admission prior to applying for housing.
