About Wood Center
The William Ransom Wood Campus Center was designed by a UA alumnus to provide students with an antidote to cabin fever. The center features a ballroom and adjoining conference rooms, an eight-lane bowling alley, six pool tables, multilevel lounge, a pub, coffee and espresso café, a pizza place, a large grill and food court and an inspirational “staircase to nowhere." Wood Center also has offices for several UAF departments and student organizations.
The “stairs to nowhere” in the center of the building are there because the Wood Center was originally designed to have three floors, and when construction plans changed due to unforeseen permafrost problems, the stairs had already been built.
