Residence Life offers basic television channels.
Cooking is not permitted in individual rooms; however, a kitchen is provided in each residence hall for resident use. There are community refrigerators in all hall kitchens except for Wickersham. Wickersham has large freezers in each kitchen and a micro-fridge in each room. There are no community kitchens in Cutler Apartments or in Employee, Family, Graduate Housing (EFG), as each unit has its own kitchen with standard appliances provided.
In all kitchens, residents are responsible for:
● Cleaning all kitchen areas and items used in food preparation, including wiping down counters, sink, stove, and microwave, and washing all dishes used. Food left out will attract pests, and residents are responsible for keeping the kitchens sanitary.
● Providing their own utensils, dishes, and cleaning supplies.
● Not leaving cooking food unattended. Unattended food on the stove or in the oven can burn or boil over, causing a kitchen fire and endangering others within the community.
● In residence halls: labeling all food with their first name, room number, and date
the food was left in the community kitchen. Hall staff will dispose of unlabeled and
expired food. Hall staff is not responsible for lost or stolen items. Community kitchens
may be closed at the discretion of
Residence Life staff if the kitchen and/or items in the community kitchen are not regularly cleaned.
Washers and dryers are available at no additional cost to residents. Residents must provide their own laundry detergent. Laundry is available 24 hours and we ask that residents be courteous while doing laundry, especially during quiet hours.
See below for general laundry use guidelines:
● Do not overload the machines as it can damage both the machine and your clothes.
● Remember when you put your laundry in and remove your laundry in a timely manner so the washers and dryers are available for other residents. Please note that other residents may remove your laundry if it is left in a machine after the cycle is done.
● Washers and dryers are for resident use only. Please do not let non-residents into the facilities to do their laundry.
● Keep the laundry room clean and remove all of your belongings when you are done.
● If you have any problems with a machine, do not try to fix it yourself. Report any issues to Residence Life staff.
● Residence Life is not responsible for lost, stolen or damaged articles that result from the use of these facilities.
● Clothes lines in the laundry rooms or outside of apartments are not allowed.
● Residents need to remove the lint from the lint compartment after each dryer load.
Per Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act, or FERPA standards, Resident information will be kept private and used only when necessary, and always within the standard of the law.
While information shared with Residence Life staff is held to a privacy standard, any information presented to a Residence Life staff member relating to the violation of University policy, and/or a threat/harm, must be reported to the Residence Life staff member’s supervisor or the Residence Life professional staff member on call.
Residential facility entrance doors are locked 24 hours a day. This is an important personal safety and crime prevention effort. If an entrance door is propped open, shut it or seek assistance from a staff member.
Never open an entrance door for anyone. Residents are encouraged to always lock their doors even when they are in their rooms or apartments. The safety of our residents is of utmost importance to us and we strive to keep all of our facilities secure. The more proactive we are, the safer we become. Remember: If You See Something, Say Something, Do Something! Please report a safety concern by either contacting Residence Life staff, the UAF Police Department at (907) 474-7721, or the Office of Rights, Compliance and Accountability. Immediately call UAF Police for any emergency situations.
“Blue light” emergency phones are located throughout campus. These phones dial directly to the UAF Police Department. UAF Police staff make daily rounds of the residential facilities and campus. If you are suspicious of or uncomfortable with someone or a situation, contact your Resident Assistant, Resident Director, or the UAF Police. For emergencies, dial 911.
Trash must be disposed of in dumpsters that can be found near all residence halls and apartments. Do not leave trash in public areas. You may be charged $40/bag for any trash left in common areas, including bathroom and laundry room trash. Do not place hazardous materials such as motor oil, antifreeze, vehicle batteries, and large appliances in the dumpsters. Dispose of these items at the proper facilities located at the Fairbanks North Star Borough landfill.
