ASU’s newest housing facility is located between the Baptist Campus Ministry and the Convocation Center. It accommodates 836 students in five separate residential buildings.  It also includes a Community Building with a laundry, kitchen, meeting rooms, and administrative offices.  Students live in four-bedroom two-bath suites.  Each suite includes a living room and kitchenette.  Bedrooms and living rooms are furnished. 

The Honors College Hall, Building Three, is home to first year and upper-class Honors College students.  The remaining four buildings are reserved for students with at least one year of college experience. 

Residence Life offers six campus housing options. According to director Patrick Dixon, Residence Life provides a safe, diverse, and well-maintained environment that complements and supports the academic mission of the University. The department creates a dynamic living/learning experience that promotes and inspires individuals to become empowered community members.
