Life at ASU’s Downtown Phoenix campus | Arizona State University

I absolutely love living at the Downtown campus. I love the small community. You honestly get to know your classmates, and your teachers are super nice. So I just love that I feel like I’m not alone. You see business people. You see students. People from a lot of different backgrounds, a lot of different cultures. People that are very like relaxed and cool, but also very professional. Living in downtown, you are close to everything. We have the opportunity to live downtown, like in the heart of a city that’s growing. I think the biggest thing that stands out for people is First Fridays. We have Roosevelt Row. There’s a lot of local markets around that you can just walk to. There’s CityScape with more restaurants. We can go watch Suns games. We can go to Diamondbacks games. The nightlife is really pretty. The city is all lit up. Having the light rail so close to campus makes it very convenient to go to Tempe. You’ll just turn a corner, and you’ll probably find something that will peak, like, anybody’s interest. Living in Taylor Place is so convenient. I absolutely love it. So we actually scan in to get into our building, which makes it very safe downtown. I’m in Barrett, The Honors College so all the students on my floor are Barrett students. It’s easier to find people to go hang out with, study with. Based on your major, there’s different clubs you can join. Internships are pretty much 5 to 10 minutes away, if not on campus. You make connections with people every day. You network every day. That’s pretty much what your entire experience is here. You really make these great connections that are going to stay with you for the rest of your life.
