Housing Rates

2020-2021 Housing Rates

Payment Methods

It's all about convenience!

An application fee and refundable deposit are due at the time of application and can be paid with a debit or credit card as part of the online application. 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 Bursar's Office 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!
