Spring 2016 Welcome Week & Move-In

Welcome home to our returning and new students!  We have lots of great resources and activities to help you get settled into Spring Semester at UAA! Here are a few to add to the list!

Spring Welcome Week…January 10-15!

We are excited to promote this year’s UAA Spring Welcome Week, which provides new and returning On-Campus Living residents at UAA an opportunity to come together in celebration of the new semester. Throughout the week, students will form lifelong friendships, become prepared to further their educations and learn valuable information about the University and surrounding community! Spring Welcome Week 2016 will feature 17 programs that focus on student safety, academic success, community building, and more.

Move-In Days for Residential Students…January 8-10!

Move-In is a busy time in the On-Campus Living community!  All residents will need to check in to the location corresponding to their room assignment. See the UAA Housing website for an On-Campus Living map. Visit our Move-In page for tips, tricks, and lists for what to bring (and what NOT to bring) to make move-in a snap!
