Alta Tempe Apartments
The Alta Tempe Apartments share a parking lot with the ASU University Center complex on the corner of University Drive and South Dorsey Lane. University Center is a three-building unit that houses the Office of Human Resources and offices for many other administrative departments.
This complex is on the eastern edge of campus, and you can travel along University to reach all destination points throughout campus. The band and athletic practice fields are directly north of the apartment complex while ASU sporting and entertainment venues are to the northwest. These apartments are within walking distance of the Sun Devil Stadium and Wells Fargo Arena as well as many other popular campus attractions.
Many residents choose the Alta Tempe Apartments because they don’t want the expense of maintaining a personal vehicle. Since the apartments are located less than a block from campus, you can walk to the campus library and most academic buildings within 15 minutes, and buildings on the eastern edge of campus are just minutes away.
If you need to get across campus fast or want to explore areas of Tempe beyond campus, bus route 30 runs along University Drive and will take you west and east of school grounds. Many other roads in the area feature additional bus routes that allow residents to travel north and south across campus and into surrounding areas. If you take bus route 72 northbound on Rural Road, you can travel north of the Tempe Town Lake to visit the marina and Phoenix Zoo. The university side of the lake features many walking trails that run alongside the water.
There are many restaurants and bars scattered along University Drive and on surrounding streets, but the main attractions of this area are the campus buildings. The apartments are less than half a mile south of the Sun Devil Soccer Stadium and just under a mile from Desert Arboretum Park and Sun Devil Football Stadium. If you’re looking for outdoor recreation off campus, Creamery Park and Hudson Park are located south of the apartment complex.
