Living in Tucson

Tucson and Santa Catalina MountainsIf you love sunshine, ideal weather, and a city that's neither too big nor too small, the Eller College offers a location that's hard to beat. The College is situated in the heart of Tucson, Arizona, with a metro population near one million people.

Tucson is less than 120 miles from Phoenix, the fifith-largest city in the nation, with a population of roughly 1.3 million. It is also just 60 miles from the U.S.-Mexico border and only 200 miles from the beach at Rocky Point on the Sea of Cortez.

Surrounded by mountains rising to 9,000 feet (yes, there's skiing in winter, usually!), with an average high/low temperature of 82/54° F and roughly 350 days of sunshine each year, Tucson offers an ideal climate for year-round outdoor activities.

Strong public and private partnerships between state and local governments, the University of Arizona, and an activist business community have built a foundation for economic development and entrepreneurship in Tucson over the last decade. Tucson’s high-tech sector has attracted over 1,200 high-tech companies to the city and has contributed significantly to Tucson’s strong and growing economy.
