Arizona State University at the West Campus is one of six university campuses that compose Arizona State University (ASU). The West campus was established by the Arizona Legislature in 1984, and is located in northwest Phoenix, bordering the city of Glendale.
ASU's campuses are unified as a single institution, and so the West campus shares students, faculty, administration, and accreditation with the other campuses. As of fall 2009, 10,380 students were enrolled in at least one course on the West campus, while the FTE enrollment for the campus is 6,173.
In 2008, the West campus was designated as a Phoenix Point of Pride, and in 2011, construction concluded on a large solar array that powers nearly the entire campus with solar power.
