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. 

Palo Verde East DormitoryHOUSING
CLI offers language-segregated on-campus housing in the Palo Verde East dormitory (PVE).

PVE offers double-occupancy rooms for $16.50/day. This includes utilities, internet, and basic cable. Two rooms share a pass-through bathroom.

PVE offers single-occupancy rooms for $30.75/day. PVE singles are identical to doubles, but with only one occupant. They share a pass-through bathroom and have two sets of furniture.

Bed linens are available for an additional one-time $20 charge.

PVE has kitchens on each floor, but they are shared among all residents of the hall and the CLI language clubs, so participants should not rely on them for their meals.

Each floor of PVE has a free-of-charge laundry room.

Microfridge/microwave units are available for rent.

DINING
CLI participants may eat on campus or may make their own meal arrangements. ASU offers pay-as-you-go summer dining in Barrett Honors Hall or the food court in the student union. (See Memorial Union Businesses Map for details on food-court options.)

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

Uzbek in Tashkent

CLI's summer program in Tashkent helps students extend and solidify the communicative and cultural skills they develop during intensive classes on the ASU campus.

The program provides 3 hours a day of instruction in Uzbek, during which students review the material covered in Arizona, with an emphasis on listening and speaking skills. In the afternoon and on weekends, the program offers excursions and extra-curricular activities led by language coaches. Since the program is small, instructors provide a great deal of individual attention and staff are able to tailor activities to students' needs and interests.

ACADEMIC CREDIT
Students receive 3 ASU credits at the 400 level (SLC 494) for successfully completing the program.
