Commuter Student Services - What We Do

The Daily Den

The Den is located on the first floor of the Student Union. Commuter Student Services provides this area as a student lounge from Monday through Thursday, 8:00 a.m. to 10:00 p.m. We offer a variety of free beverages, healthy snacks, and some guilty pleasures to help with those commuter blues. Come hang out, study, relax, play games (we provide them), have some snacks, visit with friends, and make some new ones.

Come grab a snack during the following times:

  • Morning: 10:00 am - 11:00 am
  • Afternoon: 2:00 pm - 3:00 pm
  • Evening: Monday Night Football/Special Events from 6:00 pm - 7:00 pm

Off-Campus Living

We assist in the pursuit of student-friendly living arrangements, connecting student roommates together, and help finding a temporary renter to sublease. Check out our housing board located on the second floor of the Student Union to find roommates, apartments, and more.


We can assist you by connecting you to UAA departments or Anchorage businesses that provide car maintenance, bicycle workshops, carpooling opportunities, Anchorage trails and traffic information, public transportation, on-campus parking, Seawolf Shuttle information, and more.  


We offer all sorts of free events that encourage a healthy lifestyle, including dance lessons, yoga, Zumba, and more.  


Discover the countless opportunities to interact within the UAA community!  Share your interests, and we'll point you in the right direction!  Stay in the loop with campus events by checking out the Wolfwire and UAA Life websites!

Advisory Board

The Student Union & Commuter Student Services Advisory Board meets several times a year to gather student  input on how to improve our department and our building.
