Seawolf Advisory!

This morning, our Facilities and Campus Services team was made aware of a pothole that shut down the westbound lanes of Northern Lights Boulevard between UAA Drive and Career Center Drive. It has since been upgraded to a sinkhole, and the lanes will remain closed for an undetermined amount of time while crews repair the damage. We anticipate the closure will extend through the week.

Finals week is a very stressful time for students. Students, please know that your professors have been made aware of the situation. Please communicate with them any delays you may experience due to this issue. We know this is an unexpected traffic challenge. Please take a deep breath. We want you to have a smooth and safe finals week.

Outdoor Gear Rentals

The Outdoor Gear Room in the Student Union offers current students, faculty, and staff affordable outdoor equipment to meet their recreational needs. No matter the season, get the gear you need to make the most out of our beautiful state.


UAA students (renters) use all equipment at their own risk and have had the opportunity to ask questions regarding the inherent risks involved in using the rental equipment. The renter is responsible for inspecting equipment with a UAA employee and seeing that it is complete and in safe and satisfactory condition.

No credits or refunds are given for equipment returned early or unused.
