A residential community is a place where students from the same academic discipline come to live and learn together. Our living-learning communities are housed within a residential college and are designed to foster student success by easing the transition from high school to university life. When you live in a residential community, you’ll meet friends who share your interests, develop better study skills in a collaborative environment and engage in university events to enhance your overall development.
Leaving home for college is a huge change, but we’re here to help ease your transition. When you live on the Tempe campus in one of our residential communities, you’ll have the resources to thrive at the intellectual heart of the university with students who share your academic interests.
Our residential communities provide a supportive, vibrant environment designed to help you succeed at the university. Living among fellow students in the College of Liberal Arts and Sciences, you’ll have access to opportunities and experiences that will contribute to your personal and professional development.
As the largest college at the university with the most choice and diversity of studies, our residential communities are a great way to learn about departmental activities as you start forging connections with faculty and students.
When you live in a residential community, you’ll have a Community Assistant – an upper-class student who lives on the same floor and supports your journey toward success as a first-year student. Our mentors are well-rounded, enthusiastic scholars who are great resources and can provide advice on how to succeed.
If you still have questions about living in one of our residential communities, contact the Office of Student and Academic Programs at 480-965-6506 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
