As non-traditional student housing, the apartments include a mixture of graduate students, married students and those with children, single parent families, and students over the age of 26. Phase I of Indian Village contains 100 apartments and the opening of Phase II brings the total to 192 apartments.

Members of each ASU team will be on-hand at various stations to teach skills in their respective sport.
