Submit your immunization record, which may be available from your previous schools or colleges, local health department, your primary health care provider, military immunization record, or your parents.

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. To request a religious or medical exemption form, contact us.

Immunization Records to Provide:

Measles, Mumps, Rubella

Immunization by:

  1. two doses of live measles virus vaccine, the first dose administered on or after the age of 12 months and the second dose administered more than 30 days after the first dose; or
  2. two doses of measles, mumps, rubella (MMR) vaccine, the first dose administered on or after the age of 12 months and the second dose administered more than 30 days after the first dose; or
  3. documentation of having been diagnosed by a physician as having had measles disease; or
  4. demonstrated serological evidence of measles antibodies.

If not covered by a measles, mumps, rubella (MMR) vaccine series, immunization by:

  1. at least one dose of live mumps virus vaccine administered on or after the age of 12 months; or
  2. documentation of having been diagnosed by a physician as having had mumps disease; or

Any combination of three or more doses of either diphtheria and tetanus (pediatric DT) and/or tetanus and diphtheria (adult Td) vaccine, with:

  1. the most recent dose having been received within 10 years prior to first living in the student residence facility; and
  2. a minimum time interval between the first and second dose of at least four weeks; and
  3. the third or last dose having been received at least six months after the second or previous dose of the basic series.

Tuberculosis

A negative tuberculin skin test (PPD) within one year preceding registration, unless previously positive. If you have tested positive for tuberculosis, a negative chest x-ray and proof of completed treatment is required.


Meningococcal Disease

Applicants under the age of 21 must show evidence of vaccination against meningococcal disease with the meningococcal ACWY immunization.

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

COVID 19

Residence Life requires that residents of UAS Housing be vaccinated against COVID-19. Students must be "up to date" with CDC guidelines, including booster shots. For more information about the COVID-19 vaccination requirement, visit the "Before Your Arrival" webpage.

If you requested Gender Inclusive Housing (GIH) while submitting your housing application, you must also submit a Gender Inclusive Housing Supplemental Agreement. This will become available to you after completing the Housing Agreement. From Student Housing Self-Service, select "Applications and Forms," then "Gender Inclusive Housing Supplemental Agreement." If you have requested GIH for more than one agreement period (i.e. Summer and Fall/Spring), you will need to submit the supplemental agreement for each agreement period.

Roommate selection is a deliberate and holistic process. It is important to us that your campus experience is as smooth as possible. In order to give you the most control over your roommate experience, UAS offers you the ability to search for and request specific roommates by name, or to select a roommate from a pool of applicants by filtering. 

Roommate Selection periods for 2022 are as follows:

Roommate Selection ProcessActive Timeframe
Summer 2022 Roommate SelectionApril 4 to April 13, 2022
Fall 2022 Gender Inclusive Roommate Selection*June 6 to June 17, 2022
Fall 2022 Roommate SelectionJune 20 to July 1, 2022

*Students who opt into Gender Inclusive Housing will be able to utilize this roommate selection process. If a student does not select a roommate in the GIH process, they will be added to the standard roommate process after.

You will receive an email from UAS Residence Life when a roommate selection period begins that you are included in. You may only request a roommate during this period. If you apply after roommate selection is complete or if you do not log in to Student Housing Self-Service to request a roommate during the roommate selection period, Residence Life will assign you roommates. If you do not select enough roommates to fill your housing unit, Residence Life will assign additional roommates. 

Note that roommate requests must be mutual - by selecting a roommate you are requesting them. Roommate groups larger than 2 must be "fully matched" - all roommates must have requested and accepted all other roommates. After matched roommate groups are placed, you may have additional individuals assigned to your unit. Due to UAS's small population size, this may include someone who you did not accept during the roommate selection process. If you would prefer not to live with someone, be sure to contact us at uas.housing@alaska.edu to add a note to your application. 

Housing placement begins in July (Fall Semester), December (Spring Semester), and April (Summer Semester) and is processed on a rolling basis as applications are submitted and completed, including submission of application fee, deposit, and immunizations. Residents will receive a notice that their placement has occurred via email. They can also check their placement at Student Housing Self Service.

Once a resident has received their placement, they should check the "Before You Arrive" page for information about sending mail, move-in locations, what to pack, and more.

Starting approximately one month before Move-In, each of the following forms and agreements will be available in Student Housing Self Service:

  • Move-In Agreement (Required for all residents)
  • Early Move-In Request 
  • Vehicle Registration Form
  • Bicycle Registration Form 
  • Animal Agreement (For students with approved ESA/Service animals)
