Upper Division Experience

Barrett, The Honors College, is the only four-year residential college at Arizona State University. All Barrett students continue to live in the Barrett residential community for their second year. Because of the numerous benefits of living in Barrett, many students choose to live in Barrett housing for their third and fourth years as well. In their second year and beyond, students have the options of living in South Desert Village in the shared houses.

Barrett sophomores, juniors, and seniors on the Polytechnic campus have the unique opportunity to live in full-size houses in South Desert Village. This neighborhood provides a quiet atmosphere and affords students with the comforts of home - including a full kitchen, furniture, an in-house washer and dryer, cable tv, an extra den which can be used for anything from a study area to a game room, and a semi-enclosed patio. Living in South Desert Village throughout their college career ensures that students have easy access to the honors experience - the programs, support staff and faculty, and interacting with their peers.
