Living in a W. P. Carey Residential Community (The Business Community)

Students living in the W. P. Carey School of Business residential community – The Business Community – benefit from an instant network of friends who live, learn and connect with each other even before the first day of classes. In partnership with the ASU Residential Life Office, the W. P. Carey School’s residential community offers more than a place to rest and relax; it’s a community that promotes an active and social student experience for W. P. Carey Sun Devils.

The upper division student leaders who live in the community host a variety of activities, from pizza nights and “family dinners” to study sessions and hall and floor competitions and games. There are many, many activities to keep you busy and connected beyond the classroom. In addition, ASU and the W. P. Carey School offer academic and professional services such as on-site tutoring and academic advising and workshops and events about health and wellness, scholarships and financial aid, and professional networking. Being part of the W. P. Carey Business Community is an integral part of your overall ASU student experience.

W. P. Carey CHINA-USA Cultural Exchange Community

This year, W. P. Carey is offering students the opportunity to live with a student interested in learning more about their culture. Living together with someone from another culture can be an important part of becoming bicultural and more prepared for global experiences, whether the goal is to work or travel internationally. Students interested in each other’s culture(particularly those studying the language), will likely develop a deep intercultural understanding through greater (frequent and consistent) interaction. Self-selecting American and Chinese students will be paired together in Hassayampa Academic Village. A W. P. Carey faculty member will facilitate the intercultural living and learning experience through regular trainings and programs with the roommates.

Students interested in participating in the China – USA Cultural Exchange housing option should complete the application here.
