UAA Justice Center is temporarily relocating for Summer 2018

The Justice Center will be temporarily relocating over Summer 2018 due to renovations at the UAA/APU Consortium Library. We will be open as usual— 8:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m — for the summer session at our summer location at University Center, 130. The University Center is located at 3901 Old Seward Highway (see map below).

In the meantime, the Justice Center is a bit cluttered and messy, with packing boxes scattered about. Please don't let our mess dissuade you from stopping by  if you need to visit with faculty or staff. We are operating as usual, and are here to help in any way we can. Thanks for your patience and understanding while we work our way through this transition.
