Just one mile from the western edge of ASU’s campus, 1133 West Fifth apartments put you close to the university’s Brickyard, Tempe Center and its art, design, music and communications buildings. If you prefer to walk the 14 blocks between your apartment and campus, it’s just a 20-minute stroll along West Fifth Street and Mill Avenue to University Drive. Cycling the one-mile span takes only about six minutes, and bike racks are available on campus. Driving is easy, too, but doesn’t save you much time compared cycling to campus. The drive from your West Fifth Street apartment takes about four minutes in light traffic or up to eight minutes at peak travel times. Parking is available in the visitors’ lots 14 and 20 and the 10th Street Parking Structure.
You’ll also have access to a number of public transit options from your apartment. There are two bus stops, each about one block from the apartment buildings. The most convenient bus stop is Stop 12059, a block to the southeast of the apartments at University and Beck. There, you can access the Route 30 bus to University and Mill Avenue; the trip takes about five minutes to campus. If you stay on the Route 30 bus, you can transfer to other routes and light rail trains at the Sycamore/Main Street Transit Center. Alternatively, you can walk about a block northeast to Stop 14158 at Hardy and Fifth to take Route 62 to ASU’s Brickyard; the trip takes about seven minutes.
In addition to their proximity to the ASU campus, apartments at 1133 West Fifth are near a host of local conveniences. There’s a laundromat across West Fifth, and a variety of sandwich shops, convenience stores and small markets about six blocks southwest. Gas stations, bakeries, auto parts stores, salons, restaurants and coffee houses are three to four blocks to the southeast. Athletic fields, a splash pad, dog run and community center are one long block east on West Fifth at Jaycee Park.
