Residence Halls

HousingPromo

At ASU, we know today’s students look at housing as much more than just rooms in residence halls. That’s why we have created living-learning environments for our students.

We have 13 separate residential communities at ASU, including three apartment-style clusters with multiple buildings. Most of our well-equipped residence units are equipped with twin size beds, a chest of drawers, desks, wastebaskets, chairs, window coverings, mattresses and mattress covers. Some halls feature coin-operated or swipe card machines for personal laundering.

Residence hall entrance doors are equipped with swipe mechanisms requiring residents to utilize their ID swipe cards.

Whether assigned to one of our apartments, one of our historic residence halls or one of our new facilities, you’ll find that campus living will complement your studies, help you develop your independence and fulfill your potential. And best of all, campus living is fun! Learn more about each of our residence hall communities:
