Explore housing options

There are limited on-campus options for transfer students; however, we strongly encourage you to take advantage of off-campus housing options surrounding each ASU campus. We understand that you may not be familiar with all of the housing options in the Phoenix metropolitan area, so we have developed the Off-Campus Housing Marketplace to help you search for the apartment or house that works for you.

Visit campus

If you haven’t toured campus already, visiting is the best way to get an idea of what life is like as a Sun Devil. Schedule a walking tour with a campus tour guide at all of ASU’s campuses. If you can’t make it in person, take a virtual tour — or if you’d rather explore campus on your own, take a self-guided audio tour to hear about every major campus attraction.
