Fulton Schools Residential Community

As a first-year student enrolled in an Ira A. Fulton Schools of Engineering, you have the opportunity to enrich your academic experience outside of the classroom by living in the Fulton Schools Residential Community.  Along with close access to classes, sporting events, campus activities, and tutoring resources, you will have access to Peer Mentors, Community Assistants, and Community Mentors: upper-division Fulton students who live with you in the Fulton Schools Residential Community, and assist with your success. These student leaders are a helpful resource to you as you chart your academic career, and they also know how to have a lot of fun.

We use a holistic approach to ensure the success of our students. The goals of the Fulton Schools Residential Community are:

– Residents build relationships with students, faculty, and staff in the Fulton Schools of Engineering.  Residents form friendships and study group with each other and interact with Fulton Schools faculty and staff outside of the classroom.

– Residents create a strong support system that serves students throughout their academic and professional careers.  Residents feel a sense of belonging within the Fulton Schools and affinity for their school and major throughout their time at ASU and beyond.

– Residents connect with Fulton Schools and ASU resources that aid in student success.  Professional and student staff connect residents to resources.  Residents are empowered to take control of their own academic, personal, and professional success.

– Residents have fun through a variety of academic and social programs and opportunities.  Residents enjoy their experience living on campus, alleviate stress from their academic obligations, and persist in their enrollment in the Fulton Schools.


The Fulton Schools Residential Community hosts fun activities throughout the year. You can challenge your professors to a game of volleyball, dine at Engrained with faculty and upperclassmen, carve pumpkins and make them explode using chemistry, learn about lasers and play laser tag with other engineers, tour ASU and industry facilities and much more!
