The Ira A. Fulton Schools of Engineering
Polytechnic School Residential College Experience
The residential college experience combines the personal attention, support, and familial atmosphere of a small college with the extensive resources of a major research university. The Ira A. Fulton Residential College at the Polytechnic School is a cohesive, energetic community of scholars that seeks to broaden the learning beyond the traditional classroom, laboratory, or workshop setting, allowing students and the greater ASU community to explore common intellectual and extra-curricular interests together. The residential college sponsors a broad range of social, cultural and intellectual activities, fostering interaction amongst the diverse community as well as helping students achieve academic, social, and career goals. Students have access to Community Mentors, upper division students from a variety of Ira A. Fulton Schools of Engineering degree programs, who serve as a resource to residents and assist in the planning of varied activities.

Freshmen reside in the newly built Century Hall. The new three-story, 84,000 square-foot residence hall, has two wings, creating an environment where students will live with other students who share the same major, interact with faculty members and have access to academic resources and student services outside of the classroom. Each wing features three student activity lounges, one on each floor for pool, foosball and table tennis. In addition, each floor includes a TV, two quiet study rooms and a laundry area free to Century residents.
The two wings of the building are linked together by a one-story common area with a lobby, 24-hour information desk, administration offices, community kitchen, two multipurpose rooms, a group study room and a small collaborative studio known as the Solution Space. Outside the common area there are two gas grills, seating space and a courtyard.
Note: There is an additional $49 per semester fee to live in a residential college community.
Women in Science & Engineering (WiSE) is a residential program for women majoring in engineering, science, and technology fields. Part of the larger Ira A. Fulton Schools of Engineering Residential College experience, the goal of WiSE is to encourage academic and career persistence in women who choose careers in engineering, science, and technology.
The Aviation Residential program aims support the specific needs of students involved in aviation programs as well as foster community engagement and academic excellence. Providing guidance to first-year students, upper division students from aviation specific programs provide guidance and support, encouraging students to become involved within their cohort and the greater aviation community of the east valley.
