Features of ASU housing

  • Guaranteed for all first-year undergraduate students.
  • Close to classes, services and dining locations
  • On-site staff available at all times

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!

Academic support

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.

Studied Business Analytics at ASU, now doing OPT at Choice Hotels International

I met with an ASU career advisor before any interview. They prepare you according to the actual position you're applying for, and ask you to talk about how your experience fits with the specific job description. If you can't answer that, then you know you have more work to do. They really helped me a lot.

I have a world-class student advisor, who has been very helpful in ensuring that my stay in America is comfortable. ASU provides a platform for each student to learn and grow, but most lessons are best felt and acquired outside the classroom. I am proud and happy to be part of the ASU community.
