Revel in University Life
Living right on the campus of ASU, you’ll have your finger on the pulse of university life while you share knowledge and experiences with the students who call ASU home. Opportunities to elevate your continued-learning experience abound, from access to the more than five million books in the ASU library system to shows at the historic ASU Gammage theater and beyond.
Learning never stops, and there’s no better time to pursue your intellectual passions than retirement. A wide range of lectures and workshops are held daily and just steps away. At the invitation of ASU’s world-renowned faculty, collaborate on a variety of interdisciplinary research initiatives, conduct citizen science projects, or join classrooms as either guest learners or visiting instructors. Visit ASU libraries to utilize makerspaces; enjoy archival, and rare and distinctive collections; check out print materials for free; or gain free access to ASU’s digital materials.
An Intergenerational Community
Studies have shown that bringing together younger and older adults benefits both groups, and that’s the concept at the core of Mirabella at ASU. Help prepare students for the future by sharing your industry experience with students in professional student clubs, providing guidance to ASU’s student entrepreneurs, or working with the next generation of nursing students who are gaining experience with practices in intergenerational care. Or host a dinner or cocktail hour for international guests or students to learn more about their home country and culture, share American culture and cuisine, and enjoy a stimulating discussion on what brings us together beyond our borders.
Share Your Love of Art & Music
Three exceptional graduate students from the Herberger Institute for Design and the Arts School of Music will be selected each year as Mirabella’s Artists-in-Residence during which time they will live at Mirabella in exchange for sharing their instrumental or vocal talent in Mirabella’s fine dining restaurant and other venues in performances and events scheduled 5 days a week. Mirabella at ASU will also house 10,000 square feet of gallery and studio space where you can showcase your art and creative design work alongside student artist exhibits. Mirabella Founding Members receive complimentary access to the world class ASU Art Museum as well as Herberger Institute for Design and the Arts events, exclusive presale access to seats for Broadway shows at Gammage, and a special group rate for the BEYOND fine arts series.
Providing intellectual, physical, and spiritual enrichment is critical to Mirabella’s commitment to your wellbeing. In addition to the health and fitness amenities at Mirabella, residents will have free access to a variety of campus facilities including the Olympic-size lap pool at the Mona Plummer Aquatics Complex and myriad recreational opportunities at the Sun Devil Fitness Complex. Develop your own evidence-based wellness practices based on insights from researchers in the Center for Health and Resilient Aging and the Center for Mindfulness, Compassion & Resilience.
