Our new freshman residence hall opened Fall 2014. This facility is located directly on-campus, with amazing views of Auke Lake, Mendenhall Glacier, and the numerous mountains, trees, and wildlife that surround the Juneau campus. With 120 bed spaces spread out across four floors of two-bedroom, suite-style units, this building will be a hub of activities, social connections, and access to educational services on-campus. View a few photos of the new facility in our campus photo gallery. Required placement for students under the age of 21 and entering the Fall semester with less than 24 credits.
In addition to resident units, this 34,000 square foot facility offers lounge spaces, study nooks, a seminar classroom, community kitchen, laundry facilities, student mailboxes, and interior access to garbage and recycling disposal. A front desk location will not only allow for monitoring of student and guest access to this swipe-card access secured building, but also be a source of information and referral for residents.
Our Banfield Hall residence hall is a similar two-bedroom, style facility smaller in overall size that houses our sophomore status residents. Located in the Student Housing Complex near our Housing Lodge and apartment units, Banfield Hall offers residents private rooms at a cost similar to our other comparable shared bedroom unit types. We also have exciting renovations taking place within our Banfield Hall facility. Some of these renovations include a new, larger community kitchen facility, newly created dining and study areas, and new lounge furniture. Students moving through Student Housing as a group build a sense of community with their peers, establish realistic timelines towards completion, and maintain a diverse support network. Required placement for students entering the Fall semester with more than 24 credits but less than 48 credits (sophomore status). Available, as well for juniors and seniors upon request and available space.
