contact on-campus living

on-campus living is made up of two departments:  university housing, Dining & Conference services ("housing") and the department of residence life. staff of both departments work closely together to ensure that all aspects of the residential student experience are covered. 

university housing

university housing handles meal plans, maintenance concerns, and other details related to the business side of on-campus living. before moving to campus, housing is the primary contact for most prospective residents and their families, and provides answers to questions residents may have about moving into a campus living community. 

contact the housing desk in the gorsuch commons with questions about applications, assignments, contracts, meal plans, check-in, facilities, etc.



residence life

residence life provides a living and learning environment through programs, services, and opportunities that contribute to the personal and academic success of students living in the uaa residential community. residence life employs and trains the resident Advisors (RAs), Apartment Community Assistants (ACAs), Peer academic & Wellness (PAW) leaders, and other student staff who live and work in the residence halls.
