Hotels near Arizona State University West in Phoenix, AZ

Originally known as ASU West, the Arizona State University at the West Campus is one of the four campuses that make up Arizona State University. Situated on approximately 300 acres, Arizona State University at the West Campus is located in northwest Phoenix near the city of Glendale.

Established in 1984 as ASU’s second campus (after the much larger one in Tempe), ASU West was originally designed to offer only upper-level undergraduate courses in the areas of liberal arts and sciences, business, and education. Freshmen students were not admitted until 2001. Today, nearly 9000 students are enrolled on the West Campus where they are offered more than 50 degrees focused on interdisciplinary and collaborative undergraduate, graduate and doctoral programs. Areas of study include applied computing, natural sciences, criminal justice, teacher education, business and accountancy.

The West Campus strives to provide a rich and varied experience to its students. Freshman reside in the newly built Casa de Oro, a three-story resident hall that includes dormitory-style rooms, social and gaming lounges, a community kitchen, laundry facilities and other amenities. Continuing students reside in the Las Casas Apartments. In addition, students can take advantage of the recently completed Verde Dining Pavilion and Sun Devil Fitness Complex.

Fletcher Library, dedicated in 1988, combines the features of a traditional library (with over 400,000 volumes and an extensive media collection) with a state-of-the-art Student Success Center and Computing Commons on its lower level. On-campus activities include social and cultural events, student clubs and organizations, as well as intramural sports. Students can also avail themselves of the numerous cultural and commercial attractions offered by the surrounding city of Phoenix. Plenty of nearby shops, restaurants and bars cater to the student community. In addition, students enrolled in the West Campus passionately participate in supporting ASU’s numerous Sun Devil varsity athletic teams on the nearby Tempe campus.
