Arizona State University - Tempe Campus

Basics

  • Living on campus gives students access to a new world of opportunities in a dynamic university environment. The residential experience is designed to promote students academic and personal success and to help students make the most of their first year as a Sun Devil.
  • To gain the most from your first year, freshmen are expected to live on campus. While ASU offers housing for upper-division students, graduate students and families, the majority of the residence halls are designated for freshmen. ASU encourages you to live on the campus of your major to receive the most from your academic experience.
  • Student housing at the Tempe campus is organized into neighborhoods that promote your academic and personal success. Residence halls are just minutes from your classes and dining options, and provide a community where you can learn, grow and make the most of your Sun Devil experience.

Student Comments

  • The immense number of freshmen who enroll every year makes it necessary to sign up and request housing early for the best results. (College Prowler)
  • ASU's Freshman Year Experience (FYE) program is a terrific way for incoming freshman to ease themselves into life away from home and the college experience among peers. (College Prowler)
  • The halls are well furnished for the most part, and the apartment-style residences offer an even plusher lifestyle. The dorms are also fairly safe because there is 24-hour security on duty for each one as well as 24-hour desk service. (College Prowler)
  • The cost is high for living on campus, but worth it. The campus is huge and convenient. (College Prowler)
  • It's very close to all of the classes, which makes for great convenience. It's also very easy to meet people, as many students leave their doors open. But the dorms are fairly small, so there isn't much room for belongings. (College Prowler)
  • The dorms are great at ASU, but it's all about what you make of them. I lived in PV West and absolutely loved it. It was in a great location, and it really didn't matter that it was in an older building because it just added to the experience. (College Prowler)

North Neighborhood

  • Residence halls in the North Neighborhood offer a variety of dining options, along with academic support and community activities.

        • The dorms are okay. Manzanita Hall is really big and fun but it can be sort of a love-hate relationship. (College Prowler)

      • Student Comments
        • Living in such a small with another person can be a lot to handle. However, living in the dorms allowed for me to make a ton of friends that I am still in touch with. I lived in Palo Verde West, there was a campus restaurant called Devil's Diner downstairs and it was convenient for late night food runs, but definitely not very healthy. They served greasy hamburgers, quesadillas, chicken fingers, ice cream, etc. I remember using the SRC (our gym) very often. It's really nice and has a couple of pools, a room full of treadmills and ellipticals, weight rooms, and they also offer a variety of fitness classes. The best part of the SRC is that students can use it for free and it's within walking distance from all the dorms. One of the negative sides to living in the dorms was that during winter break you were forced to move out or pay extra to stay during that time. (College Prowler)

      • Student Comments
        • I'm an Architecture student and I lived in Best C. My building was part of the Herberger Institute for Design and the Arts, so all of the students were design and arts majors. This was really helpful because I was able to work on projects with other architecture students without even leaving my dorm! On the bottom floor of our building was a studio where we were able to work on projects, which was extremely convenient because it would be bothersome to walk across campus with all your supplies and portfolio.

        • I lived in Hassayampa when it was brand new, my freshman year. The elevators broke down often, but have since been fixed. The rooms themselves were very nice and good sized for dorms. (College Prowler)
        • Hassayampa Village is the dorm to go with for freshmen. (College Prowler)
        • Hassyampa is definitely the best (next to BHC) dorms to be in. They're in great condition and very convenient in location. The older dorms are okay, but could use some renovation. (College Prowler)

        • If you're more concerned with the actual condition of a dorm, then Sonora may be the place for you. It's further from the Main campus but it's [one of the newest dorms]. (College Prowler)
        • Everyone seems to like Sonora even though it's way too far off of campus. It's definitely the nicest, though. (College Prowler)

      • Student Comments
        • I lived in Cholla. My only real issue was that the outer walls are paper thin, also the dorm linens where scratchy so you can hear everything in the elevators if you're next to them (I was). However, the convenience of having our own kitchen and being just far enough off campus to give us some separation from our classes made it a pretty fair location. (College Prowler)
