Arizona State University Downtown Phoenix Campus A professional, fast-paced downtown environment provides a multitude of academic and professional connections for students

Learning takes place in contemporary classrooms and research centers throughout campus buildings integrated into Phoenix’s iconic architecture, incorporating the historic U.S. Post Office building and modern-day landmarks such as the Walter Cronkite School of Journalism and Mass Communication. Joining these is the soon-to-be-completed Arizona Center for Law and Society, which will be the new home of ASU’s Sandra Day O’Connor College of Law.

Students participate in an abundance of public service opportunities, and have leisure-time access to first-class fitness facilities, performing arts and cultural venues, and major sports events.
