Program Description

The ASU Global Village Residential Community is a multicultural housing option for students from all over the United States and the world. The Global Village's mission is threefold: to maintain a welcoming community for exchange students from around the world, while introducing them to the American university experience; to enhance the intellectual and social growth of ASU student residents in order to prepare them to engage the world as global citizens; and to encourage a higher level of global awareness in the larger ASU community by sponsoring cultural programming.


Residents of the Global Village will enjoy the benefit of living in a safe, convenient campus environment, as well as the opportunity to connect with their peers through both structured and informal interaction.

Things to Consider

When making the decision to live in a residence hall, consider the following:

  • Contracts with ASU University Housing for students beginning their housing placement in the fall semester are, by default, full year contracts.  NOTE: Incoming exchange students who will be at ASU for the fall semester only will be required to complete a License Agreement Release in order to terminate their contract at the end of the fall semester.

  • You will have pre-arranged housing on campus supervised by on-site staff who will maintain order and security.

  • You will have access to housing no more than a few days before orientation and a few days after the end of your program.

  • You will have a fixed cost for the semester or year and can take advantage of a payment plan and pay by credit card.

  • You will have options to live in a studio style apartment, to share a living space with one roommate, or share with three other roommates. All rooming arrangements in the Cholla Apartments have bathrooms and small kitchens.

  • You will have access to a pool, laundry facilities, and common room with a television.

  • Your room will be furnished with a bed, desk, desk chair, and dresser for each person. You must provide linens. More information about additional amenities can be found on the Cholla webpage.

  • Cholla Apartment rates include electricity, water/sewer, water heating, cable TV, and internet connection. Phone lines cost extra.

  • ASU is a dry campus, which means that alcohol is prohibited.

  • Cholla Apartments closes during long-term academic breaks, including the winter term. You can arrange to stay in your room over the winter term and this costs an additional fee.

  • If you are coming to ASU for only one semester, living in the Cholla Apartments or other on-campus housing may be a better option for you. Securing an apartment for only 4-5 months is very difficult.
