Start your journey here.
Where will your journey take you? How will you make use of nearly 22 hours of daylight?
Will you use it to uncover solutions to challenges small, global and everything in between?
And what will you make of the world after making friends with genuine, easygoing people in a place like no other?
The University of Alaska Fairbanks is the place to start your journey.
From accounting to Yup’ik language and culture.
There’s a program for you here, and myriad minors, majors, degrees and certificates for you to earn. Perform research alongside academic powerhouses. Find and explore your voice in the arts. Make even more of your military service. Here’s where your intellectual journey gets good:
Connect with a current student.
As you meet unique people across this landscape, you’ll learn to see everything differently.
No matter where you’re from or how you attend, you’ll find your place here.
Include everyone in the journey.
Your base camp may be family or may be friends, and it may not look anything like your classmate’s or roommate’s. That’s why UAF provides students — and all their base camp people — with what’s needed for success.
What — and who — we’re made of
42 years before
Alaska became a state
from 49 states and
make up the Fairbanks campus
Find your place.
Beneath the shimmering aurora. By the glow of your computer, anywhere in the world. Here, there are no limits to how you can learn.
When you reach Fairbanks, you’ll know you’re someplace fundamental. Denali glimmers and darkens. Migratory birds wing in for summers that touch 90 degrees. Moose hunker down in winters that reach negative 40.
Wilderness surrounds Fairbanks, yet highways, airlines, fiber and satellites firmly connect it to the world. So you can attend and earn your degree online from anywhere.
In Fairbanks, you’ll find the Troth Yeddha’ Campus, the UAF Community and Technical College and the Interior Alaska Campus. Beyond, regional campuses serve Kotzebue, Bethel, Nome and Dillingham. Research sites can take you to Kodiak in the south, Juneau in the east and Toolik Lake above the Arctic Circle.
