Discover the exciting benefits that come with being a resident of the Mirabella at ASU community:
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, rare, and distinctive collections; check out print materials or gain access to ASU’s digital materials.
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. Here, your experience, skills, and knowledge are respected, immensely valued, and needed—play a crucial role in supporting student success through mentorship, guidance, and providing essential assistance. Two exceptional examples of such intergenerational engagement and support are:
Four exceptional graduate students from the Herberger Institute for Design and the Arts School of Music are selected each year as Mirabella’s Artists-in-Residence. During this time, they reside at Mirabella in exchange for sharing their artistic talents in music, singing, and dancing through performances and interactive programming held throughout Mirabella. The community also houses 10,000 square feet of gallery and studio space, as well as an Art Walk where you can showcase your own art and creative design work alongside student artist exhibits. Mirabella Founding Members receive 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 Auditorium, 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 well-being. In addition to the health and fitness amenities at Mirabella, residents will have access to a variety of campus facilities, including the Olympic-size lap pool at the Mona Plummer Aquatics Complex and a wide array of recreational opportunities at the Sun Devil Fitness Complex. Develop your own evidence-based wellness practices based on insights from researchers in the Center for Innovation in Healthy & Resilient Aging, and the Center for Mindfulness, Compassion & Resilience.
Access groundbreaking technologies and take the opportunity to participate in fascinating research projects, such as this one learning about fall prevention conducted by Dr. Thurmon Lockhart in the Biomedical Engineering program. By contributing to university research, you’ll gain valuable insights into your own well-being and play a valuable role in helping to create innovative solutions to real-world problems.
