On Dec. 11, 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.

Explore Options for Living on Campus
When you live on campus, your classes, the library, and campus activities are just a short walk, bike ride or shuttle ride away. With on-campus housing you also have the added conveniences of on-site laundry facilities, cafeteria, and convenience store located right withing your housing complex.
Consider the hidden costs of living off-campus: large security deposits, cable hook-ups, heating and electricity bills, groceries, trash removal fees, gas and transportation costs, etc. Now consider on-campus living: with only a $300 deposit, and your cable, internet, heating, electricity, trash removal, and basic maintenance all included in one predictable semester charge. Plus with the addition of a meal plan, you won't have to spend your time grocery shopping or cooking!
