The history of ASU can be traced to 1928 when San Angelo College was established following a municipal election held in 1926. Organized as part of the city school system, for many years the two-year college occupied a site on North Oakes Street near the commercial center of the city. The voters of Tom Green County in 1945 created a county junior college district and elected the first board of trustees. In 1947, the first building was constructed on the present university site.
The university has experienced a rapid transition from the status of a regional junior college, to that of an accredited senior institution of higher learning. Pushed through the legislature by State Senator Dorsey B. Hardeman, a former mayor of San Angelo, the former San Angelo College was transformed into Angelo State College in 1965 by an act of the 58th Session of the Texas State Legislature in 1963. The transfer of authority from the Board of Trustees of the junior college to the Board of Regents, State Senior Colleges, became effective on September 1, 1965. In May 1967, the first baccalaureate degrees were awarded. Shortly after Hardeman retired from the Senate, the name of the institution was changed to Angelo State University in May 1969.
The main campus is situated on 268 acres (1.08 km2). It is centered on the campus mall, a tree-lined pedestrian walkway which covers over one mile (1.6 km) and connects most major buildings. It has changed significantly since 1965 as a result of the development of an ultramodern physical plant now valued at over $450 million. The university consists of over 60 buildings encompassing 1,940,768 square feet (180,303.2 m2) of available space.
The University provides on-campus housing for over 2,500 students. Over 25% of the student body resides on campus. The university's housing was ranked fifth in the nation on a list of "Most Inviting Yet Affordable College Dorms in America" by AffordableSchools.net, a higher-education resource website. All units provide individually controlled air-conditioning units, phone and cable television service, data connections, and access to the university Wi-Fi network. Rent includes all utilities. There are seven residential facilities on campus where options range from traditional dormitory units to those that offer private bedroom suites with a common living area and kitchenette. All halls have resident assistants who live in the building to assist students.
