Campus Life

Experience the ideal campus culture

When you become a student in the School of Geographic Sciences and Urban Planning at Arizona State University, you’ll study on the Tempe campus with more than 50,000 scholars who are eager to excel academically and beyond. As the original and most historic of five distinctive campuses throughout the Valley of the Sun, the Tempe campus is home to Old Main, the first university building constructed, as well as other points of pride, including Palm Walk, “A” Mountain, Cady Fountain, Danforth Chapel, University Bridge and the Desert Arboretum Park.

You’ll also be able to support your fellow Sun Devils in various sporting activities on campus from football at the Sun Devil Stadium and basketball at Wells Fargo Arena to swimming at the Mona Plummer Aquatic Center and softball at the Alberta B. Farrington Softball Stadium. If performance and visual arts peek your interests more, the Tempe campus is also home to an extensive public art collection and various shows at Gammage Auditorium.

Multiple residence halls to call home on campus

There are various housing accommodations on the Tempe campus for first-year students and upperclassmen. Newly admitted freshman are encouraged to live in a specified community within the College of Liberal Arts and Sciences Residential College. Each community is designed to foster academic success as you’ll be living with students from the same major and you’ll have access to an array of support services like tutoring centers.

The university welcomes upper-division students to live on campus as well. Whether you’re looking for more of an apartment-style accommodation or a suite-style room, the Tempe campus has a residence hall to suit your needs.

Get involved outside the classroom

If you want to get the most out of your college experience as a Sun Devil, get involved in student clubs, community service, intramural sports or whatever interests you. ASU has more than 1,000 clubs and organizations for students to join and if you can’t find one that suits your needs, you can always start your own.

The School of Geographic Sciences and Urban Planning also has a variety of involvement opportunities, including the Gamma Theta Upsilon Geography Honor Society, the Student Planning Association, Students for the New Urbanism and so much more.
