First-year undergraduate students are guaranteed housing on the campus that hosts their major, in a residence hall with others who share their academic or career interests.

ASU-USA Pathways students can apply to live in one of two residence halls on the West campus: Casa de Oro or Las Casas. Since housing is limited and is not guaranteed, you are encouraged to apply as early as possible.

Graduate and transfer students can apply for apartment-style housing on any campus. Housing is limited on each campus and is not guaranteed.

Off-campus housing options include university-recommended apartment complexes near your campus. Pathways and English preparation students can also choose to live in a “homestay” with a local host family — a great way to practice English and immerse yourself in American culture!

At ASU, you’ll have lots of resources to help you succeed in your university studies. The International Students and Scholars Center hosts workshops where you can learn tips for US academic study, while the University’s Academic Success Programs offer peer-to-peer tutoring in a variety of subjects, writing help, and advice for developing your academic skills.
