A place to find yourself.

As you meet unique people across this landscape, you’ll learn to see everything differently.

Include everyone in the journey.

Not everyone’s support system looks the same. Yours may be family or friends. It may not look anything like your classmate’s support system either, and that’s OK. That’s why UAF provides students — and their support systems — with what’s needed for success.

What — and who — we’re made of

Where you'll learn.

Wilderness surrounds Fairbanks, yet highways, airlines, fiber and satellites firmly connect it to the world. So you can attend and earn your degree online from anywhere.

In Fairbanks, you’ll find the Troth Yeddha’ Campus, the UAF Community and Technical College and the Interior Alaska Campus. Beyond, regional campuses serve Kotzebue, Bethel, Nome and Dillingham. Research sites can take you to Kodiak in the south, Juneau in the east and Toolik Lake above the Arctic Circle.
