Legislative Housing List


LEGISLATIVE HOUSING LIST

The Legislative Affairs Agency (LAA) provides information to legislators and staff for session housing. LAA accepts clean, reasonably priced, furnished houses, apartments, and rooms to rent. The greatest need is for downtown rentals and those that accept pets. We do not accept unfurnished accommodations.

Legislative sessions begin the third Tuesday of January and may last between 90 and 120 days. In 2022, session starts January 18 and may last until April 17 (90 days) or through May 17 (120 days).

DISCLAIMER: The Legislative Affairs Agency does not act as an agent for any legislator or staff. Any agreement is solely between the landlord and the prospective tenant. Neither the Legislative Affairs Agency nor the Legislature is responsible for any issues that may arise between the two parties. Housing offers may be reviewed and inspected before being included in the Agency housing list. We reserve the right to exclude those listings that do not meet our criteria.

The Legislative Housing List is maintained by the LAA Executive Director’s Office. Listings are posted on an internal website available only to legislators and staff; however, sometimes listings are shared with an outside party. To date, we have had no complaints about this issue.

Legislators and staff outside Juneau must maintain two households during session and are seeking reasonably priced accommodations. Juneau residents can help by providing economical rentals through this listing service. Legislators and staff typically arrive in Juneau as close to the start of session as possible and leave shortly after session adjourns.

Rental listings are accepted beginning October 1 through the first day of session. A listing is active for one session; to post the same property for a subsequent session without repeating the online form, please contact our office. Please provide notification once you have a confirmed rental agreement, so we can mark the listing as rented and you do not get further inquiries.

When submitting your information, please be as detailed as possible. Pictures are very helpful as many legislators and staff will not have the opportunity to see their rental until move-in day. Please complete the “dates available” section so prospective tenants are aware of any limitations should session be extended.

Below are average rental rates from our list; the range is wide based on several factors (location, utilities included, amenities, pet possible, etc.). It’s possible average rental prices for legislative listings are not representative of the Juneau market. The purpose of this list is to provide a service to legislative employees seeking affordable housing in the Capital.
