Student housing at Arizona State University

ASU ensures your home away from home is modern, safe and comfortable. All admitted first-year undergraduates are expected to live in on-campus student housing. After year one, undergraduates may choose to live on or off campus. Graduate students may also apply for on-campus housing, though it is not guaranteed.

Living on campus 

It’s important to note that the style of student housing and the types of amenities available will vary among campuses and residence halls. Room and meal plan costs will also vary from location to location.   

Housing is available on a first-come, first-served basis on the campus of your major. The housing portal opens in early January for the upcoming fall semester and in November for the upcoming spring semester. We recommend that you apply when the housing portal opens in order to have a good chance of being assigned a room. After that date, you are less likely to secure accommodations on campus.
