Surrounded by urban life and wilderness, the University of Alaska Anchorage (UAA) is a gateway to innovative thinking, learning and exploration. UAA is the state’s largest university, located at the heart of the state's largest city of Anchorage. Community campuses are located in Kodiak, Mat-Su, Soldotna and Valdez. Students at UAA come from Alaska’s towns, cities and rural communities; from all 50 states and U.S. territories; and over 30 countries. Our communities embrace the cultures, ethnicities, politics, experiences and goals of a diverse group of people, united by respect for others and commitment to education.
Involvement in campus life fosters the development of leadership skills, a sense of belonging and opportunities to contribute to the community. Through our many programs and activities, UAA students experience hands-on education, in and out of the classroom. We encourage students to explore the array of resources and activities available to them through living on campus (Anchorage/Kenai/Valdez) and participating in clubs and organizations, student government, social and recreational activities, community service, recreational sports, and athletics.
