LOCATION

Arizona State University is a large, metropolitan university. The main campus, housing 64,000 students, is located in Tempe, 15 minutes by light rail from Phoenix Sky Harbor Airport. Emblematic of the lively, eclectic atmosphere of Tempe is the city's main street, Mill Avenue. Anchored on one end by gleaming office towers and on the other by the university, with a mix of eccentric and upscale establishments, Mill Avenue caters to both international students and international businesses. 

Housing & Meals

HOUSING
CLI offers language-oriented on-campus housing at one of the ASU dormitories (TBD).

ASU typically offers double-occupancy rooms for $35/day, with bathrooms shared between two double-occupancy rooms.

At this point, ASU has a very limited supply of single-occupancy rooms. We may not be able to offer this option for Summer 2022. 

Participants who wish to live in an ASU dormitory and require rooms with ADA accommodations should email cli@asu.edu as soon as possible. ASU has a limited supply of such rooms, but CLI will work with Housing to try fulfill any such requests. 

Bed linens rentals are available for an additional one-time $45 charge.

Typical amenities include: laundry facilities, kitchen facilities, vending machines, air conditioning, and basic cable.

Kitchens are usually shared among residents of the hall and the CLI language clubs, so access may be limited at times. CLI does not provide supplies for kitchen areas.

DINING
CLI participants may eat on campus or may make their own meal arrangements. ASU offers a food court in the student union. (See Memorial Union Businesses for details on food-court options.)

CLI does not offer a meal plan for any of its on campus programs.

OFF-CAMPUS OPTIONS
CLI students are not required to live in the ASU dorm or to eat on campus. Private summer sublets are available near campus. Price and quality vary. CLI does not assist with off campus housing arrangements.

All prices and descriptions on this page are based on 2019 pricing and are subject to change. Once ASU provides us with 2022 pricing, we will update this page accordingly. Participants are responsible for checking current prices and details before signing billing, housing, or meal contracts.

Costs

Program Fee:

Thanks to ASU institutional support, CLI does not charge tuition (in-state or out-of-state) for its credit-bearing courses. 

Instead of tuition fees, we charge a flat administrative fee of $1,500.*

*For information about our reduced program fees for PELL-eligible students, please see the “Funding” tab.

Please keep in mind this fee covers academics only. It does not cover room, board, travel, study abroad program fees, books, or insurance.

This fee is the same regardless of language and number of credits taken.
