ASU to turn Lake Havasu City hotel into campus housing

LAKE HAVASU CITY, Ariz. (AP) - Arizona State University students in Lake Havasu City will have a place to call home this fall.

The Today's News-Herald reports that ASU is expecting to close this month on the purchase of a vacant Lake Havasu City hotel that will become on-campus housing.

ASU Senior Vice President for Academic Affairs David Young says the school will renovate the building and have it ready for move-in by Aug. 1.

The property will offer single and double-occupancy rooms for 160 students.

ASU students have been relegated to a Days Inn since summer 2012.

The students say they are looking forward to not having mile-long walks to campus.

ASU Colleges at Lake Havasu City bills itself as offering undergraduate degrees with lower tuition than at Arizona's research universities.
