Constitution Hall (also known as Convention Hall, Alaska Constitution Hall and the Student Union Building) houses the student center at the University of Alaska Fairbanks in Fairbanks, Alaska. Completed in 1955, the building was the site that year of the meeting at which the Alaska State Constitution was drafted, a milestone in the territory's drive for statehood. It is a reinforced concrete structure two stories high.[2] The building currently houses a bookstore, barbershop, alumni association offices, and the studios of the student radio station KSUA.[3]

The building was listed on the National Register of Historic Places in 2005.[1]
