Guest Housing Options
The Department of Residence Life offers housing to those visiting the campus for both academic and recreational pursuits from Memorial Day through August 1. There is LIMITED availability after August 1 for approved guest housing extensions until August 15.
Our summer conference staff is trained in customer service and we strive to provide excellent service to all groups and individuals staying at UAF. Our main goal is to provide a memorable and rewarding experience for every guest.
Our accommodations are more affordable than most lodging options in the area and we provide convenience to the rest of the UAF campus and its many attractions. However at present, we DO NOT operate our conference housing in a manner similar to a full-service hotel, with daily individual room cleaning services. Therefore, fresh linens and towels are available 24/7 at the main front desk in the MBS lobby.
Our housing accommodations consist of seven traditional residence halls and 60 two-bedroom apartments for guests. We also offer ADA accessible housing, please contact our office if you require special accommodations.
