Conveniently situated on East University Drive between South Rural Road and South Dorsey Lane, 12Fifty5 On University is tucked along the central eastern edge of the ASU campus. Campus athletic fields and University Center Buildings are just across the street, and the Biodesign, Science and Technology buildings are just a half-mile to the west. This location makes getting to campus a breeze with a nine-minute walk or a four-minute bicycle ride. Driving to campus takes about six minutes, and parking at the Rural Road Structure is closest for day pass use.
If public transit is more your style, you’re in luck with ample access to Valley Metro buses. The bus stop is just a two-minute walk west on University Drive to South Athletes Place. Route 30/ University can deliver you to the edge of campus, where South Rural Road and East University meet. If you need to go deeper into campus, you can continue on the Route 30/University bus or catch one of the campus FLASH Forward/FLASH Back shuttles. You could also walk a couple of minutes to the Tempe light rail station at Tyler Street if you need to travel to other parts of the Tempe/Phoenix area via light rail. Bus Route 62 Hardy/Guadalupe also picks up passengers at the Athletes Place stop and can take you to area shopping centers northeast of the apartments.
