Our purpose for having Residence Halls not simply to provide residents a place to sleep. We are striving to create an environment where emotional, social, cultural, academic and recreational growth and development may be enhanced. Through residence hall programs and activities, this student development concept can be realized. At the same time, residents are provided with guidelines for living in this type of environment. A learning experience should take place which will enable residents to develop a balanced and realistic approach to life after they leave the University. Every effort is made to ensure that residents may exercise their rights, provided they assume the corresponding responsibilities.
ResLife provides the best possible housing at a reasonable cost to residents, while at the same time providing more than just the basic physical needs of the apartments, houses, and residence hall rooms. Each area is a unique community staffed by well trained Resident Assistants and Resident Directors or Assistant Resident Directors. Housing is offered year round, although on a limited basis in designated areas during the Winter Break and Summer Season.
Living On-Campus provide the opportunity to meet people and get involved in a close-knit community that combines all the comforts of home with all the excitement of the traditional college experience. Whether you prefer a private room with suite-style living or have interest in sharing a room, one of the various floor plans and price points available in our residence hall communities are sure to meet your needs.

ROOMMATES IN UAF RESIDENCE HALLS
Meeting other students is one of the greatest assets of living in a residence hall. You can either select your own roommate or we will try to help you find one with a similar lifestyle and interests. If you select your own roommate, you both need to request the same hall and each other, and contract for the same type of room. University Housing does not guarantee a roommate in the matching process; however, we work hard to place students with their roommate preferences.
