Before Your Arrival

Confirm Your Placement

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. Once your application is complete, check your placement at Housing Self Service:

Self Service

If a placement is not visible in Self Service you likely have not completed all of your application requirements. Reach out to to verify any outstanding items.

Move-In Day, Vaccination, and COVID Testing

All housing residents are asked to provide proof of vaccination for COVID-19  prior to arrival on campus or at check-in. You will not be permitted to move in unless you can demonstrate you are up to date with your vaccination series. 

If you have an approved COVID-19 immunization exemption, you are expected to receive a COVID-19 test before move-in. This test should be administered no more than 72 hours before check-in and you should bring your negative results with you. Staff will determine your status and any applicable restrictions upon arrival utilizing the information on our Testing and Quarantine Status webpage. Please review this carefully as there is a possibility you will not be able to attend class or New Student Orientation and you may want to request an early move-in.

If you receive a positive COVID-19 test result regardless of vaccination status, the State of Alaska expects that you will not travel and will instead observe a self-quarantine in place. Do not travel to Juneau or UAS Housing. Please notify UAS Housing of your positive test so that we can assist you with connecting with faculty and support networks at UAS via distance.

Submit COVID-19 immunization records to Residence Life at or by fax at 907-796-6387.

COVID Vaccination FAQ

Effective March 14, 2022, all students will need to be up to date with CDC vaccination guidelines including boosters in order to move in each semester unless there is a valid medical or religious exemption on file. If this will present a challenge to you, reach out to us at

Like all required immunizations for living on campus, students may file either a religious or a medical exemption with the University and will be released from the vaccine requirement. Note that you will be held to campus entry restrictions and more stringent move-in/travel testing requirements. You may also be asked to quarantine if you are named as a close contact of someone who has COVID-19 regardless of any symptoms you may or may not be presenting with.

The CDC generally recommends that individuals who recently had COVID-19 receive a vaccine if they are no longer symptomatic. Inform Residence Life at if you’re recovering post-covid and we will work with you on a vaccination timeline that is appropriate for your specific case.

Before You Arrive on Campus

Completion of Housing Application
Your application must be complete in order to move in. This means that you need to have submitted all required immunization records, as well as have paid your deposit and application fees. Visit the Apply webpage for more information about completing your housing application. If you have not completed any of these tasks, please reach out to the Housing Office at

Sign Your Move-in Paperwork:
Before you arrive on campus, save time by filling out your move-in paperwork. You can access the Student Housing Check-In paperwork here. After logging in, select "Applications," then "Move-in Agreement."

What to Bring

Beds in all housing units are twin, extra-long. These are not standard twin bed dimensions and proper sized bedding is recommended for purchase.

No linens or pillows are provided.

Some residents also purchase mattress pads or foam toppers.

You may bring many items to decorate your housing unit. When planning out your decor, keep in mind that UAS Housing highly recommends the use of 3M brand Command Hooks & Strips or Sticky Tack for hanging any items on walls. Nails, tacks, screws, or any items that cause damage to paint or place holes in the walls will lead to damage being charged to you after move-out.

Please review the "Decorations and Modifications" policy for more information.

For John Pugh Hall Hall residents, microwave dishes are good to have. All John Pugh Hall suites come with a full-sized refrigerator and microwave A few plates, bowls, and silverware are the basic necessities for residence hall life. The John Pugh Hall communal kitchen is closed for Fall 2020, so you may consider bringing additonal small appliances to utilize in your unit as well, including:

  • Instant Pots
  • Crock Pots
  • Coffee Makers
  • Water Kettles
  • George Foreman Grills
  • Griddles

We do not allow small appliances with directly exposed heating elements, which includes:

  • Toaster Ovens

In the apartments, there is a shared kitchen available, but housing does not provide any kitchen appliances, dishes, or utensils; so it’s usually a good idea to bring your own dishes, silverware, pots and pans, and other utensils for cooking. All apartments come with major appliances, including a full-sized refrigerator, stove, and microwave.

Please see Housing Policies for a more comprehensive list of appliances that are permitted or prohibited in housing. 

You may bring weapons to store within Student Housing, although weapons are not allowed within residential units under any circumstances. This includes paintball guns, air soft guns, and BB or pellet guns. We require that residents ask Student Housing professional staff prior to bringing any item onto campus. We offer a secured storage for weapons. Please check our policies for what weapons can be stored in the weapons storage and our weapons storage guidelines.

What Not to Bring

Any appliances with open, exposed heating elements, including single-coil cooking elements, non-enclosed space heaters, pizza ovens, or toaster ovens are not permitted.

For more information regarding small appliances, review the UAS Housing Policies page.

UAS Housing has wireless internet setup throughout all Housing Units, and residents are not permitted to setup their own wireless access points or other wireless network equipment.

While incense and candles are not prohibited within student housing, they may not be burned. You should carefully decide what items to pack and bring to Housing. Jar candles may be used on candle warmers.

Some incoming residents wish to come prepared to use coin-op laundry. However, all UAS Housing laundry facilities are operated by funds loaded onto your student ID card.

The Move-In Process

When you arrive to move-in you should visit the front desk in either the Housing Lodge (apartment placements) or John Pugh Hall. If you arrive after hours, call the RA Cell Phone at (907) 209-6539 and someone will meet you and assist you.

The move-in process will occur as follows:

  1. You will be asked to present a form of photo identification. A staff member will then complete a short verbal health questionnaire, check your temperature, and if needed, collect your negative COVID-19 test results and/or vaccination information. 

  2. The staff member will verify you’ve completed all of your housing move-in paperwork. They will also ensure that you have provided up to date contact information for yourself and an emergency contact. Finally they will issue you a key to your unit.

  3. After moving into your unit, log into Housing Self Service and access your Room Condition Report by selecting "RCR/Damages" in the left-hand menu. Any damages found in your unit after 72 hours will result in damage charges being placed on your account. 

Please note that if you are not fully vaccinated and your COVID test results have not been received by the time you arrive at UAS Housing, you will be redirected to a temporary quarantine unit, as space permits. UAS has limited quarantine housing, so students may be turned away if quarantine spaces are not available. UAS highly encourages you to submit your vaccination information and/or receive a test with negative results before traveling to Juneau, and to communicate with us as soon as possible if you realize you will be unable to do so.
