UAA Campus is Open

We are pleased to report the UAA Anchorage campus will open on Wednesday, Dec. 5, following last Friday's earthquake. The Chugiak-Eagle River Campus will remain closed, but classes will resume in alternative locations. Students should check UAOnline for their new meeting location. As you return to campus, we encourage you to check the web page uaa.alaska.edu/earthquakerecovery for important safety tips and resources about how to submit work requests to facilities for repairs. Please continue to check our Facebook and Twitter accounts for updates.

Shops & Dining

From full-service restaurants and cafeterias to convenience stores and coffee shops, the main campus at UAA features a wide variety of dining options. If you need a quick caffeine fix, there’s likely a coffee shop nearby no matter where you are on campus. Many of these shops offer grab-and-go options for days when you’re on the run, while sit-down restaurants at UAA provide a relaxing dining experience.
