My Housing at ASU

Living on campus is critical to your personal and academic success. First-time freshmen live with students with whom you share a common academic and professional interest at the location of your school or college. Residential college freshmen study together, work closely with college faculty and have access to college support services and programs. Living and studying with other students in your academic major provides a tremendous advantage to you in your first year and it eases the general adjustment to university life.

To apply for housing, log in to the My Housing portal and select the First-time freshmen or transfer, continuing and graduate students application. First-time freshmen (students who are applying for admission to ASU while enrolled in high school or a student who has not attended college since high school graduation). Transfer, continuing and graduate students ( students who are applying for admission to ASU and has previously attended a college or university after high school graduation). Most students who have completed courses while still in high school (dual enrollment) are considered freshmen.

Family Housing options are available at the Polytechnic campus for students with families.

Getting Started

Applying for housing is completed in two phases.  Once you access the My Housing portal, the first phase is to complete your housing application.  The second phase gives you access to our roommate finder tool and allows you to self-select the room of your preference.  During the second phase, you will also be selecting your meal plan. Meal plans are required for all freshmen and some upper class communities.  Through our system you will be asked to review and agree to the terms of our License Agreement for the full academic year. Please make sure you carefully read this document.

Apply to live on campus
Living on campus is critical to a successful transition to university life and first year academic success. From in-hall study groups to recreational sports to late-night programs, residential colleges provide access to resources and services to prepare you for the rigors of your academic major and success in your chosen discipline.

ASU expects first-time freshmen to live on campus in the residential college of his or her major and guarantees housing to all first time freshmen. Students who intend to live elsewhere during their first year should notify University Housing, so we can connect you to valuable resources and support for your first year.

Once you are admitted to ASU and have completed your enrollment deposit, housing options will be presented to you based on your campus and academic major. You should review your options as soon as you have paid your enrollment deposit to improve your chances of receiving your living and dining preferences. If you prefer to live elsewhere, please access the My Housing Portal to complete your housing preference.

Students who have submitted a housing application and who wish to request to cancel the application, will need to sign into the My Housing portal and cancel application by clicking on the ‘cancel application’ link. Please note, cancellation fees may apply and are outlined in the My Housing portal or at the schedule of fees and charges on the housing website.

Housing and Dining Confirmation Fee
All Arizona State University Housing residents must read and electronically or physically sign the University Housing License Agreement. A non-refundable Housing Living and Dining Confirmation fee of $125.00 will automatically be billed to your ASU student account and due immediately. If financial aid is awarded and accepted, your confirmation payment may be covered by your aid. By signing this agreement, you agree to reside in on-campus housing for both the fall and spring semesters; the agreement binds the student financially for the entire academic year. Please note this fee is for processing, preparing and reserving your housing preferences. This is not considered a contract fee and is due regardless if an actual housing assignment is made.

Roommate Requests
Students living in the same residential college can search for each using the roommate finder wizard on the housing selection portal.  All students who apply for housing can create a roommate profile to be used to search out roommates that share similar interests and behaviors.  Students can also form roommate groups and organize to occupy entire rooms or suites.  If you have a specific roommate in mind, once he or she has applied all students can be searched in the roommate finder by their ASURITE.  (ex: John Smith is jsmith)

Charges and Deadlines

Housing for students with families

University Housing is pleased to offer residential living options to students with families at our Polytechnic campus.  Students must maintain enrollment in nine (9) credit hours per semester during the Fall and Spring and one (1) credit hour during the summer at ASU and must be making consistent progress toward a degree. Student status and eligibility to remain in residential living will be verified during each month. When a student withdraws or is withdrawn from a class for any reason, it is the student's responsibility to inform University Housing.
By signing a license agreement with University Housing, the student gives permission for the college or university to release directory and credit-hour verification and financial aid information relative to the student's eligibility and priority assignment status (as per the Family Education Rights and Privacy Act of 1974).
