The campus is located in the downtown area of Phoenix, in an area bound by Van Buren Street, Fillmore Street, 3rd Avenue, and 7th Street. Classes began there in August 2006 with students from the College of Public Programs and College of Nursing attending classes there (in renovated existing office buildings adjacent to Arizona Center). The campus has expanded from its initial footprint.
The growth of the campus has been linked to the gentrification of downtown Phoenix, Arizona. The movement of faculty, staff, and students to the downtown core has been linked to increases in rents and the out-migration of locals from the original communities. Following the COVID-19 pandemic, and the departure of many tenants of downtown high-rises, these concerns grew as the University aimed to acquire more space. Others remain concerned about the city of Phoenix financially supporting the endeavor.
