This morning, our Facilities and Campus Services team was made aware of a pothole that shut down the westbound lanes of Northern Lights Boulevard between UAA Drive and Career Center Drive. It has since been upgraded to a sinkhole, and the lanes will remain closed for an undetermined amount of time while crews repair the damage. We anticipate the closure will extend through the week.
Finals week is a very stressful time for students. Students, please know that your professors have been made aware of the situation. Please communicate with them any delays you may experience due to this issue. We know this is an unexpected traffic challenge. Please take a deep breath. We want you to have a smooth and safe finals week.

UPD ... has an app for that!
Introducing the UAA SAFE app!
Providing you with tools to help you on campus, and on the go! The UAA SAFE app turns your smart phone into a Mobile BlueLight phone while you are on campus, allowing University Police Dispatchers to see your location using your phones GPS information when you make your Emergency BlueLight call, If you move to make yourself safer, your location will update with the Dispatcher.
Need to walk from a building to your car, One building to another, Main campus to Housing, while it is late, dark, or you just have a feeling of unease? Use the Virtual Walk home feature while on campus to have a University Police Dispatcher monitor your progress via your phones GPS location, and they will be able to answer your call should you need assistance.
Don't feel the need to have a Police Dispatcher monitor your walk? With the Friend Walk you can send your location to a friend or family member via SMS or email and they can monitor your travel from your GPS location where ever you are on or off campus.
Rest assured, Your GPS location is only provided to UPD when you decide to do so. You have to activate the location services, and the feature in the app for your location to be seen. Once you close your walk, or disconnect the BlueLight call, your phone is no longer providing the app with your location. So all of the late night trips to the bathroom are not being counted by anyone other than you.
Several other resources are also available like the Seawolf Shuttle Map, Emergency Plans, a Safety Toolbox, and Support Resources. Feel free to download the Free app from the Apple App Store or Google Play today!
