Plan to experience residence life at KPC

With more than half a semester of occupancy under its belt, the new residence hall at the Kenai River Campus in Soldotna is gearing up to welcome additional students to residence life in the upcoming spring semester. For the first time, local students can opt to stay close to home, friends and family but live on campus and become a part of the KRC residence life community.

Applications for the KRC Residence Hall are available at and are accepted at any time. Rates are prorated to reflect the move in date. The spring semester move in date is Jan. 6 and classes begin Jan. 13

Parents and students are encouraged to schedule a tour of the new facility. Living in apartment suites, four students share a fully furnished living room, dining area and full kitchen, but each student has a private bedroom and shares a bathroom with only one other student. In addition, students have Wi-Fi and cable, access to free laundry facilities, game rooms, workout gym, half-court basketball and a nine-hole Frisbee golf course.

The hall has been very active this semester, hosting many programs for KPC students and providing meeting space for many community groups, including Central Emergency Services, KPBSD counselors, Soldotna Economic Development committee and Kenaitze tribal elders and leaders.

The residence hall, in conjunction with KRC’s campus at large, will offer summer conferencing opportunities beginning in May 2014. The location is ideal for corporate retreats, employee trainings utilizing KPC’s Career and Technical Education Center, computer labs, classrooms and meeting rooms while having access to all the Kenai has to offer in the summer.
