College, AK

The community of College, Alaska, sits just west of the city of Fairbanks and makes up a portion of the Fairbanks metropolitan area. College covers almost 19 square miles of land in the Fairbanks North Star Borough, home to a population of about 13,000 people.

The area is largely considered part of Fairbanks rather than the separate entity it really is. The University of Alaska Fairbanks serves as the core of College, centered around the historic commercial intersection of Alumni Drive/College Road and Farmers Loop Road/University Avenue. College also borders Fairbanks International Airport, while the Chena River cuts through College’s southern end. Museum of the North is a center of Alaskan natural and cultural history located in College.

“What a breath of fresh air! After getting the run around at another garage and nothing was fixed, I cannot say enough good things about Metropolitan Garage! They were prompt, fixed the problem (on the first trip), and were very professional. The ladies at the front desk were friendly and such a pleasure to work with. I will never take my vehicle to anyone else!”
