Welcome to #NanookNation!
We are so excited to have you join us during New Student Orientation. Don't know where your classes are? We've got you covered. Where's the food? Come with us, we'll show you! Can I work a student job or climb an ice wall or get funding for research? TOTALLY!
New Student Orientation prepares you with the knowledge, skills and resources you need to succeed at UAF.
Spring New Student Orientation will take place Friday, January 13, 2023. Check back later this fall for a schedule of events.

Stay Connected with Residence Life
UAF is invested in your success as a student. Experience and research conclusively shows that living on campus — especially during your first year in college — leads to academic success and greater connection to the campus community. All incoming first-year undergraduate students attending the Troth Yeddha' campus in Fairbanks who are enrolled in 9 credits or more, and under the age of 21, are required to live on campus.
