Living on campus is about community
Why search for a study group, when you can live with your study group? LLCs bring together students with similar identities, values or needs. We also have faculty and staff who support your experience within the residence halls. A successful first year of college looks different for every student, and we offer programs to appeal to a diverse set of interests and structure them so students are given opportunities to adjust to UAF academically as well as socially. We also have LLCs for returning students to develop knowledge, passion, leadership.
Students develop a strong friendship with fellow students while gaining a deeper connection to the university with the support of faculty and staff. Students can expect to participate in fun and educational in-house activities and events with Resident Assistants who are a live-in resource with the same field of study or interest.
There are both first year and continuing education living learning communities. Depending upon your field of study, year at UAF, or personal interest, there are options to select a variety of areas. There are limited spaces available though, and applicants will be accepted on a first come first serve basis, so make sure to reserve your spot early!
