The Chancellor's House, known formerly as the President’s Residence, was built in 1954. At the time, it was described on postcards as "one of the finest homes in Alaska and probably the most photographed." President Patty and his family moved into the five-bedroom showcase home in late March 1954.

In June 1994, the house became a residence for the UAF chancellor. The president moved to a new home built off campus with private donations.

The Chancellor's House is used as a meeting and reception space if not occupied by the sitting chancellor.
