Tempe, Ariz. — Arizona State University and American Campus Communities have opened The Fulton Schools Residential Community at Tooker House, a 1,600 bed residential community for undergraduate students in the university’s engineering school.
The “dorm for engineers” features on-site digital classrooms and state-of-the-art maker spaces complete with 3D printers, laser cutters and design tools needed for a broad range of engineering courses and projects. The community also offers a 525-seat dining facility, Bluetooth-enabled laundry rooms that notify residents when their clothes are dry, advanced green building technology and high speed internet.
“From the high-performance technology infrastructure to the innovative academic amenities within the building, Tooker House was designed explicitly to meet the dynamic needs of Arizona State University engineering students,” says Jamie Wilhelm, American Campus Communities’ EVP of public-private partnerships. “We are proud to partner with ASU and support their vision to advance the model for live-learn communities across the nation.”
Solomon Cordwell Buenz designed the property. In total, American Campus Communities has developed seven communities totaling 7,719 beds for ASU, an investment in excess of $540 million.
