*Shared room rates are based on occupancy of at least two students per room. If a student is sharing a room and their roommate moves out, the student remaining will be charged the prorated single room rate for the period they are in the room alone. If students are in a shared room alone and wish to maintain the shared-room rate, they will have the option to consolidate with other students who also wish to share a room. If a student wishes to remain alone in a shared room and guarantee they won't have a roommate, they can talk to the Housing Desk about buying out the unoccupied side of the shared room.

**Apartments are typically reserved for students who have lived on campus at least one year or are 21 years of age or older.

***This option is only available if space allows and if the MAC and Templewood Apartments are not full. This rate guarantees single occupancy in a room meant for two students.

All other housing and dining fees will be assessed to your UAA student account prior to the start of each academic semester and should be paid along with tuition and other UAA fees by the UAA payment deadline for each semester. Students must keep their accounts with the University of Alaska in good standing in order to live in on-campus housing.

For information on how to pay your student account, visit the Accounting Services Cashiering webpage.


All rates are effective as of March 4, 2020 for the 2020-2021 academic year and are subject to change. Rates are listed per semester. Students can apply for housing anytime during the year and rates will be prorated depending on the actual move-in date.

All students living in the residence halls are required to have a meal plan. Apartment residents are not required to purchase a meal plan; however participating in one of these plans can be more convenient than grocery shopping and kitchen clean up!
