The subterranean world just below ASU The State Press discusses the not-so-mysterious underbelly of the university Share Tweet Email Print You may have heard of the legends surrounding the tunnels just beneath ASU, but once you know the reality of what they are, they become far less mysterious. They serve a vital role in regulating building temperature, providing electricity, data security and even can act as passageways for students and police in the case of an emergency. Despite their allure, the tunnels are far more dangerous than they may seem. For this reason, facilities management isn't known for advertising them. Not only are the tunnels stocked with potential hazards, but trespassers are also turned over the law enforcement. Though their mystique may tempt students to try their hand at entering the tunnels, the tunnels are far better appreciated and admired than explored.
