Additional Campus Parking Information

Alaska Pacific University assumes no responsibility for any damages, theft, or personal injury involving vehicles parked in University lots. Efforts will be made to contact vehicle owners to inform them of vehicle break-ins, hit and run damage, headlights left on or situations in which moving your vehicle is necessary before doing so (snow plowing, construction, etc.).

Electrical outlets are provided for block or circulating car heaters in the Atwood Center parking lot and they are at a first come, first serve status.
