Welcome to Barrett, The Honors College
at ASU’s Downtown Phoenix Campus

Located in the heart of America’s sixth largest city, students at the Downtown Phoenix campus have access to a variety of cultural and sporting events, as well as myriad community service and leadership opportunities.  The Downtown Phoenix campus is focused on each student’s academic achievement, professional development, and involvement in a larger community.

Downtown students live and study near some of the city’s most prominent news stations, hospitals, government entities and community service centers. The Downtown Phoenix campus engages students in Phoenix’s ongoing growth and expansion, and challenges them to look and think beyond their college campus.  Barrett students live on the 8th and 9th floors of Taylor Place as part of our honors residential community, dubbed “B-Town D-Town” by students.
