The Lodge, located in the heart of campus housing, was designed with the needs of students in mind. The front desk of the Lodge is open from 8 AM to 10 PM Monday through Friday and 12 PM to 10 PM Saturdays and Sundays. The Lodge desk offers students services such as copy/fax facilities, mail and package pick up, and recreation equipment check-out. Equipment available for check out at the Lodge Desk includes pool cues, air hockey paddles, board games, vacuum cleaners, mops, brooms, snow shovels, and other useful items. Checked out lap tops may be used anywhere in the Lodge at no cost.
When the Lodge is closed, the card key access located on the back of your student ID allows students after-hours access into the Lodge until midnight. After hours, CAs carry cell phones to offer 24 hour assistance with issues such as lock outs, housing related disturbances, and emergencies.
Additionally, the Lodge has the following facilities for your convenience:
- Game room
- Lodge dog available for walks and short hikes
- Television room with DVD player

Living on campus at the University of Alaska Southeast provides residents with amenities and support that students living off-campus do not have available to them. In addition to simplified billing and protection against shared leases, Student Housing offers a safe, interactive, and stimulating living/learning community close to the main campus.
Live-in professional and paraprofessional staff members provide the residential student community at UAS with social and educational activities, personal support and referrals, conflict mediation services, responsiveness to 24-hour calls for assistance, and are highly trained in crisis response.
Paraprofessional Community Advisor (CA) employment opportunities are offered to returning students living in Student Housing. Those staff members assist the live-in professional staff in serving the needs of residents in any way possible.
Community Advisors are skilled in:
- Helping skills
- Effective listening technique
- Student development
- Crisis management
Each floor in Banfield and every apartment building has an assigned Community Advisor who is responsible for the residential needs of his/her residents. They are available for students to approach with personal needs, concerns, or housing questions.
Living with roommates can sometimes be a challenge. Consistent with the department's Philosophy of a Residential Campus, students are encouraged to make extensive and mature efforts to reconcile differences, to communicate needs and expectations, and to establish compromises and standards for living with their roommates.
To this end, students can request that a staff member facilitate a conflict mediation between residents to ensure a productive discussion about household issues. To arrange a conflict mediation, contact your CA, a PA, or the Residence Hall Coordinator. Mediation is typically required before room changes will be considered.
Security and 24-Hour Assistance
The Residence Life Staff provides 24-hour coverage of the student housing complex. Residents can call the CA cell phone (907) 209-6539 day or night for assistance, whether it be to key them in to their rooms, to make noise complaints, or to report health or safety issues. Additionally, a professional staff member is always on call to assist the paraprofessionals when necessary.
Goldbelt Security provides overnight coverage of the housing complex to address disruptions or unwanted visitors. All of the staff have undergone extensive training in emergency response and crisis management, and are First Aid/CPR/AED certified.
