UAA Resources

  • Student Health and Counseling Center
    The SHCC is dedicated to providing 

    high quality, respectful, and gender-affirming healthcare for all of our students. We've included the ability for students to identify their preferred name, identity and pronoun use for their medical record, and offer an all gender restroom housed in the clinic.

    We offer primary health care and counseling services:

    • Annual exams
    • Pap smears
    • STD testing and treatment
    • PrEP and PEP
    • Birth control
    • Screenings and referral for mental health issues (related to coming-out, depression, anxiety, relationship issues).
  • Pride Center
    UAA supports LGBTQ+ community with several resources through the Pride Center (lower level of the Student Union).  Contact Jessi Saiki via email at to learn how to connect. All are welcome!
  • All Gender Restrooms

    The University of Alaska strives to create and sustain inclusive, supportive, safe, and nondiscriminatory communities. One aspect of creating a supportive environment is providing safe, accessible, and convenient restroom and locker room facilities. Students, staff, faculty, and campus guests are welcome to use the restroom and locker room facilities that correspond to their sex or gender identity, or utilize restrooms that are designated all gender.
