Step 2: Submit Your Deposit and Application Fee

In order to secure your housing application and receive priority for housing placement, a $25 non-refundable application fee and a $300 housing deposit is required for all new housing applications. You may pay the application fee and housing deposit by cash, check, or credit card. We currently cannot accept deposits online.  Please refer to the refund/rate schedule for the cancellation schedule.

The $25 non-refundable application fee and a $300 housing deposit are payable to Student Accounts.

Step 3: Submit Immunizations

Proof of required immunizations is mandatory for all residents of UAS Student Housing. To remain in compliance, all residents must provide documentation of required immunizations and tuberculosis testing or treatment to UAS Student Housing.

If it is not in your possession, your immunization record may be available from your previous schools or colleges, local health department, your primary health care provider, military immunization record, or your parents. STUDENTS WHO FAIL TO COMPLY WITH THESE REQUIREMENTS WILL BE UNABLE TO MOVE INTO HOUSING OR WILL HAVE THEIR HOUSING AGREEMENT REVOKED BY THE UNIVERSITY.

Residents may be granted an exemption from one or more of the specified immunization requirements based on a documented medical recommendation or for religious reasons in accordance with university regulation. Those persons exempted from immunization or testing for a disease may be removed from student residence facilities should an outbreak of that disease occur or threaten to occur.

Please submit with your application for Student Housing to:

University of Alaska Southeast, Student Housing, 4300 University Drive, Juneau, AK 99801

Effective May 18, 2005, the State of Alaska requires that all post-secondary educational institutions must provide information about meningitis and meningitis vaccine to all students who intend to reside in campus housing and requires that students sign a form indicating that they have either been vaccinated against meningitis or have received information about meningitis.  See the text of law, including required information about meningitis below:

Sec. 14.48.165 of the Alaska Statutes reads as follows:

Immunization of postsecondary students

A postsecondary educational institution in this state shall provide written notice to each student who intends to reside in campus housing before the student’s initial period of residence that includes the following information:

Meningococcal disease

  • is a serious illness that can cause death within a few hours of onset; one in 10 cases is fatal, and one in seven survivors of the illness is left with severe disability;
  • is a contagious but also largely preventable infection of the spinal cord fluid and the fluid surrounding the brain;
  • Scientific evidence suggests that college students living in campus housing are at a moderately increased risk of contracting meningococcal disease; and
  • Immunization against meningococcal disease decreases the risk of contracting the illness

Effective Fall 2021, Residence Life requires that residents of UAS Housing be vaccinated against COVID-19. Students who are partially vaccinated may move into Housing and work with Residence Life on a timeline for full vaccination. For more information about the COVID-19 vaccination requirement, visit the "Before Your Arrival" webpage.
