Residence Halls

North, East, and West Halls are the three residence halls in the UAA Housing community. UAA’s residence halls offer suite-style housing with one (single suite), two (double suite) or four (quad suite) bedrooms and one or two bathrooms within each suite.  Most bedrooms are private bedrooms, but each hall also has a limited number of shared-bedroom suites that offer a more economical option. Each hall houses approximately 200 students and features common-area lobbies with community kitchens, lounges for studying and socializing, and laundry facilities.

**The residence halls have community kitchens in the lobbies.  Individual suites in the halls do not have kitchens; therefore, residents must select from one of the various convenient meal plans offered through Seawolf Dining.

A number of the apartments are specifically designed to accommodate students with both temporary and permanent disabilities. Students who experience disabilities and need housing-related adjustments or accommodations should notify the Housing Office and the Office of Disability Support ServicesView the steps involved in requesting housing adjustments through Disability Support Services.
