University Center Building at ASU West
Glendale, Arizona

Arizona State University at the West Campus is one of four university campuses that compose Arizona State University (ASU). ASU's campuses are unified as a single institution, and so the West campus shares students, faculty, administration, and accreditation with the other campuses. Located in northwest Phoenix, the West campus is home to students pursuing degrees in business, education, and interdisciplinary arts and science programs. Patterned after the University of Oxford, the campus architecture is designed to create a close-knit learning community. CLICK HERE to view our interactive campus map.
