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.
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!
