Andrew Nerland Hall

Fairbanks Campus

Description:  406 Denali Lane

The four-story Andrew Nerland Hall opened in 1953 as an all-male residence for 100 students, the center building of the Stevens-Nerland-McIntosh complex on Denali Lane. The university built six residence halls on the main campus in a seven-year period. Today Nerland is coed by floor and in the mid-1990s received a “Healthy Lifestyle” designation. During 1997, the hall underwent renovation that included new furniture and wiring for high-speed Internet access and cable television.
