GETTING TO ASU
If you are flying into Phoenix, you may take the light rail or a taxi/uber from the airport. If you are driving, you may park in any of the paid parking around ASU, or purchase a parking pass (see below).
We have included a campus map below, but you may also use the ASU Interactive Campus Map, or simply use Google Maps to find any building at ASU.
Dorm students may arrive at the Sonora Center dorm starting on May 20th. The front desk will be staffed 24 hours a day. You will receive a key card, linens (if you ordered them), welcome packet, and your room assignment when you arrive. If you wish to purchase linens, but did not request them yet, Sonora will have a limited supply available to rent. There are two kitchens (1st and 5th floor) available for your use. Please be courteous and clean. Everyone will be sharing these kitchens. *Please note, the vendor that previously provided mini-fridges and microwaves is no longer offering this service. Please ask the front desk if you have any questions regarding garbage, kitchens, or have any issues with your room. Please make CLI aware of any issues as well, by emailing CLI@ASU.EDU.
