A-State will change the trajectory of higher education in Mexico with a partnership in Querétaro, continuing to fulfill our mission of preparing students to be global citizens.
-- Edmundo Ortiz, General Director of AIEM
Arkansas State is partnering with the Association for the Advancement of Mexican Education (AIEM) to become the first comprehensive U.S. university in Mexico with an American-style campus and unique academic opportunities.
What began as a dream to bring an American-style university experience to Mexico has evolved into a reality.

Residence Life provides a safe, diverse, and well-maintained environment that complements and supports the academic mission of the university. We create a dynamic living/learning experience that promotes and inspires individuals to become empowered community members.
Living on campus is an important part of the college experience. Studies show that students who live on campus make better grades; are more involved in campus activities; and are less likely to drop out of college. We offer a residence hall system with a sound academic and social atmosphere. Residence Life provides facilities to satisfy the daily needs of our students.
