I don't live on campus, but I have visited some of the dorm areas (Called The Commons) where there is a post-office, cafeteria, snack shop, computer lab, and a multi-purpose room for meetings. Therefore, I cannot comment much on social atmosphere other than I've heard the dorms are very small, very expensive, and too far from classes (requires either a car or using the on-campus shuttle service or walking when the weather permits, if not too cold, too icy, or too snowy).

There are three Residence Halls, five Templewood apartments, and six MAC apartments. Residence Halls benefit students by having their own bedrooms, but checking in is seriously annoying. Templewood apartments are spacious, include kitchens, and have garages. They are the best places to live on campus, however they are usually taken up by students on the athletic teams. Main Apartment Complex (MAC) is in my opinion, the worst of the on campus housing. They are over thirty years old, stink, never maintained, and yet still offer students with kitchens. I would never stay in MAC.

Getting into the halls and a place to live can give you a heart attack. Many people including myself has experinced last minute placements when you set up a place to live a long time ago. It really can make you worry about if you will have a place to live or not. Once you are in the rooms are small unless you live in a single suite but the living rooms can be large. The halls do not have a kitchen but every where else does, you have to pay for laundry unless you live in temple-wood.

The dorm process is the worst as there was no survey process for roommates for the 2013-14 year, selection was totally up to chance if you did not already have someone in mind. The dorms are small and there is no kitchen area. The social scene is bad as there are no parties on campus. To add insult to injury Res Life constantly promotes things like "Octsober" and Jeopardy with a focus on the horrors of smoking marijuana. So if you don't enjoy the knitting or pumpkin carving then UAA is not the place for you.
Sorry, there are no reviews.
