Arizona State University is considering the need for additional student housing on its Downtown Phoenix campus after relocating more than 130 students from its downtown residential hall Taylor Place, according to Dean of Students Sharon Smith.
The university is looking at enrollment growth and trends in occupancy to determine how to deal with its overflow of students.
Relocation was optional for certain students and mandatory for others. Students were transferred to leases with Muse in downtown Phoenix and Union Tempe apartments or placed in rooms at the Sheraton Hotel. Students are continuing to pay their agreed upon rate for housing rather than apartment and hotel pricing.
