Gilbert Square Apartments
The Gilbert Square Apartments in Mesa, Arizona, offer a short commute to the Arizona State University as well as elementary, middle and high schools. Situated on East Covina Street, residents can reach University Drive within minutes by car. Going west on University will lead you straight into the Tempe campus. In light traffic, you should reach the eastern edge of campus in less than 20 minutes.
You will need additional time to each the stadiums and training fields in north campus or the academic buildings located in south campus. University Drive will also lead to regions of Tempe west of the campus, so you can explore a variety of restaurants and parks just by following this road.

If you’re willing to walk approximately 15 minutes, you can go to the intersection of Main Street and Gilbert Road to catch a Main Street Link bus headed towards Mesa Drive. This will take you to the light rail station located near Main and Mesa Drive. Take a westbound train headed for 19th Avenue to reach the corner of Veterans Way and College Avenue. This is on the northwestern corner of campus, close to the Sun Devil Stadium, aquatics complex and Wells Fargo Arena.
You can also continue riding the train to reach destinations located northwest of campus. Local buses will take you to a variety of restaurants, bars, bowling alleys and parks located in Mesa near the apartments.
