Downtown Phoenix ASU campus springs back to life as students begin fall move-in

[Source: Jahna Berry, Arizona Republic] — Roughly 850 Arizona State University students are expected to move into Taylor Place dorms in downtown Phoenix this week.  The two-tower, 1,250-bed complex at 120 E. Taylor St. was completed in 2008 and provides beds for ASU’s fledgling downtown Phoenix campus.  This is the first year that the second tower will be open to students.  That means up to 550 additional students will live on campus, compared to last year.

Overall, about 12,000 students and 200 staff members are expected to move into residential housing across ASU’s four campuses this fall, according to university estimates.  ASU has about 62,500 students, according to spring enrollment figures.  [Note: Read the full article at Downtown Phoenix ASU campus springs back to life as students begin fall move-in.]
