Personal Vehicle Information

Students bringing a personal vehicle to AVTEC must register and obtain a free parking permit from the Residence Life Office in Marathon Hall. The permits must be displayed in the lower left of the driver's side windshield.


Students may park in any unrestricted AVTEC parking areas. Handicap-Accessible, Staff-Only, and State Vehicle parking areas may not be used and are located around all AVTEC buildings. Inappropriately parked vehicles, vehicles without parking permits, non-drivable/operational vehicles, and abandoned vehicles may receive a parking violation that could result in the loss of parking privileges, or the vehicle towed at the owner's expense.

With permission of the attendant on duty, students may park in front of the 3rd Avenue entrance only when unloading or loading while moving in or out of the dormitory. Students may leave vehicles parked on campus during school breaks with permission from the Residence Life Department Head. Students may not leave their vehicle on campus during summer break between school years. Vehicle maintenance is not allowed anywhere on campus property.

AVTEC assumes no liability for damage to personal vehicles by other individuals or due to conditions caused by snow, ice, or snow removal equipment.

Dress Code

Students are instructed in the appropriate attire required for the training areas and for professional appearance in the workplace. Students wearing attire inappropriate for the classroom will be required to change clothes immediately. The time it takes to change clothes is unexcused time away from training.

Mail Delivery

For mail services, the US Postal Service has an office located at 507 Madison Avenue, open 9:30 a.m. until 4:30 p.m., Monday through Friday, and Saturdays from 10:00 a.m. to 2:00 p.m. It is closed on Holidays. Students that live within City limits that want mail services can go to the US Post Office to secure a post office box. A rental fee and a refundable key deposit may be required.

To prove Seward residency, students living in AVTEC dormitories and family apartments must have two forms of ID and an AVTEC Business card, available from dormitory staff.

Students living off-campus in private housing must provide their rental agreement, or a utility bill with their address, to the Post Office to rent a post office box.

Parcel Delivery

Parcel Delivery (UPS, FedEx, etc.) can be sent in the students name to Student Housing. Students should inform the Dormitory Attendant when they are expecting a package. Deliveries should be addressed to the Residence Life office at 516 3rd Avenue, Seward, AK 99664. You will be informed when a package arrives.

Student Employment

A few part-time positions at AVTEC are available to students. Please inquire about student work opportunities with AVTEC's Human Resource Office.

Student ID

Students enrolled in a training program six weeks in duration or longer receive a picture ID valid for the length of the training program. If an ID is lost or stolen, it must be re-issued and a fee may be charged. To reflect any change in status in a program, or a housing change to on or off campus, a new ID will be issued free of charge.

Transportation for Students without Personal Vehicles

AVTEC provides transportation for students between the Residence Life Campus and training facilities before and after training and for lunch, Monday through Friday. Bus schedules are posted in the dormitory, cafeteria, and training areas.

Transportation to the First Lake Facility is seasonal, dependent on weather. The transportation schedule is set and students are encouraged to be ready to board the bus five minutes before departure.

AVTEC also provides transportation to the grocery store every weekday evening and at noon on Saturdays and Sundays. Meet at the dorm office in Marathon Hall. Students may arrange transportation with dormitory staff, at least 24 hours' in advance to doctor's appointments, the pharmacy, or other community resources. Dependents of AVTEC students can ride in State vehicles only if they follow State law regarding mandatory child restraints.
