Looking for something to do?

The Office of Residence Life sponsors over 800 programs each year. Activities range from community service outings and sports events to floor socials. There's something for everyone. And if you're still not finding what you want, speak with your Resident Assistant or Hall Director about arranging an activity you would like.

Residence Life staff members at UAF are committed to creating fun and engaging environments in the residence halls. We know that the residence hall is a student’s home away from home. We strive to provide residents with valuable support and resources as well as activities and programs that serve to develop a sense of community and provide opportunities for learning. We strive to make our halls inclusive communities that enhance and support each student’s college experience.
