The campus opened with nearly 1,000 students enrolled in one of the eight degrees offered. The campus started with two schools — the School of Technology and the School of Management and Agribusiness. East College was added in 1997 as an incubator for new professional programs.
More than 8,000 students are enrolled in 40 degree programs based on the campus. ASU shares around 600 acres (2.4 km2) at Power and Williams Field roads with Chandler–Gilbert Community College, Mesa Community College, Embry-Riddle Aeronautical University, a United States Air Force research laboratory, Arizona State University Preparatory Academy for PK-8), Polytechnic High School, and the Silvestre Herrera Army Reserve Center. Together, these entities make up what is known as the Williams Campus.
In July 2005, the ASU campus changed its name from ASU East to ASU Polytechnic.
In the Fall 2008 semester a major expansion project at the campus was completed and open to students in the form of the new Polytechnic Academic Complex. It is located in the heart of campus and combines new student housing with classrooms and administrative offices in an open air building environment. The three new buildings cost a combined $103 million and cover 240,000 square feet (22,000 m2). It was built by main contractor DPR and designed by RSP Architects (Architect-of-Record) in collaboration with Sam Luitio-based Lake|Flato (Design Architect) and is a LEED v2.2 Gold certified project.
