Arizona State University



The beautiful Arizona State University Tempe Campus is welcoming and easy to navigate. The ASU campus is within walking distance of many hotels in Tempe and Mill Avenue in Downtown Tempe. Visitor parking is available off of University Drive, Apache Blvd. and at Rural Road and Terrace Mall. Our university has grown from a small teaching college in 1885 into one of the largest universities in the nation. We encourage you to carve some time out of your trip to see what it’s like to be a Sun Devil.
