Housing options for first-year business students

Which campus you will be attending? All W. P. Carey first-year students who live on an ASU campus (Polytechnic, Tempe, or West) are part of the Business Community. It is very important that you live where you take classes. After all, the time you spend there and the connections you make lead to a greater sense of belonging, community, and success.

New Student Orientation

The W. P. Carey School of Business expects all first-year students to attend ASU New Student Orientation. Attending orientation is the best way to learn about ASU and the academic expectations and rigor of the business school. You will learn about the great variety of resources and opportunities available as you meet with business advisors, student engagement staff, and current students (peer advisors) as you register for your first semester of classes.

Camp Carey

Camp Carey is a W. P. Carey tradition for first-year students. It provides a unique, fun, highly engaged and interactive outdoor experience for all incoming first-year W. P. Carey School of Business students. Going to camp is truly one of the best things you can do to ensure your success:

  • Great way to make new friends
  • Fun introduction to the business school, the deans, and the W. P. Carey staff
  • Opportunity to meet other business students (sophomores, juniors, and seniors) who volunteer their time and facilitate each camp
  • Unbeatable way to get out of the heat for a few days
  • Camp Carey is held in Northern Arizona throughout August, including the first two weekends after classes begin. Find out more about starting college off right at Camp Carey, and register to attend!
