The Student Union and Commuter Student Services strives to assist students in all of their housing needs. We aim not only to help students find housing, but also to ensure that you are happy with your current living situation. Below you can find a list of useful links to help search for housing, learn more about Anchorage housing laws, where you can get your utilities, and more. 

Finding Housing

On-Campus Housing: If you are interested in the traditional collegiate experience, then check out the opportunities available at UAA's residential campus.

Off Campus Housing Board: Located in the Student Union on the second floor next to the KRUA booth. This board is open to students to use to find roommates and apartments for rent. 

Pad Mapper: This is a website that shows available housing on Google Maps. It is a great visual tool to discover housing options.

  1. Enter a desired zip code into the search bar. For housing near UAA, enter "99508."
  2. Click on the markers that appear on the map of the Anchorage area to view available housing.
  3. Take notice of housing near the part of the map labeled "University Area."
  4. Housing markers generally contain pictures, phone numbers, addresses, and information about the property.

Places 4 Students: This is a website that allows students to connect to landlords and roommates. If you are searching for roommates or housing, you can create a profile using your UAA email address. This makes it possible to communicate with other UAA commuter students looking for a new place.

  1. If it is your first time, you must register by clicking on the "Students" tab in the upper right corner. 
  2. Follow the registration steps. We recommend you use your student email address.
