If you have some free time in Fairbanks, have access to transportation and want to learn more about Alaskan history, check out the museum at the university. It's relatively new museum, thoughtfully laid out and comprehensive in its review of how Alaska came to be. We spent an afternoon there and really enjoyed it.

have a chat with the local students to get a boots-on-the-ground view of life in the interior. lots of them live without running water. the university is beautiful but well-maintained topically, but there's a lot that's been neglected over the past 40 years. it is NOT RV or pet friendly, there are no food options. the logistical setup of the...

A small campus with not much In The way off attractive buildings. The museum is worth a visit but is not earth shattering. Mind you there is not much else to look at in Fairbanks

I finished my bachelors degree at UAF in the '80's. Then I started raising and taking care of my boys. But during Spring and Fall registration I worked for the business office. That lasted ten years. Meanwhile when my kids started field trips in school I always went on the field trips to the UAF Museum. I feel it is... More

I am not sure why you would visit this university unless you were attending school. It is spread out on a hill. Amazing research is conducted at UAF. Little to no architect worth mentioning.

Heard about the campus and public art & drove up. Quiet during Memorial Weekend, but, were free to walk around, enjoy the views, art & architecture. What student wouldn't be motivated to enjoy this campus with it's unique degrees & focus, climbing wall and epic views?

We really enjoyed the Alaskan art displayed at the museum. The animal exhibit was wonderful, and the Northern Lights movie was a great choice.

Cute little school set up high with fantastic views from the main drive. The buildings are different and the campus is lovely, a nice little side tour if you have a little time to kill. I understand the art museum there is exceptional but we did not have enough time to go through it.
