Level 550 Apartments
You’ll find the Level 550 Apartments in Mesa, Arizona, approximately seven miles northeast of the Arizona State University campus in Tempe. This location is minutes away from the Red Mountain Freeway, so it’s attractive to university faculty and students as well as those commuting elsewhere for work. This freeway is also known as the 202 loop, and you can reach most destinations in Tempe and surrounding towns utilizing this roadway.
The fastest route to the Tempe campus is through the 202 loop. Go west on the loop to Scottsdale Road, and then follow Scottsdale into the northern end of campus. You will find the Wells Fargo Arena and all of the university ball fields in this area, but Scottsdale will turn into Rural Road and lead you to the southern half of campus if you continue straight.
If you prefer to enter campus from the east, follow McKellips Road to Dobson Road and continue southbound until you reach University Drive. Turn right on University and drive straight until you enter the campus. You can follow this road until you reach your desired area of campus or drive straight through campus to enjoy restaurants and parks located west of the university.
You can reach the edge of the Tempe campus within 15 minutes in light traffic, but it can take 50-65 minutes if you use the Valley Metro bus and light rail system. The closest bus stop is almost a mile away near the intersection of Center Street and McKellips Road. Catch a southbound bus on Country Club heading toward Pecos, and get off at the Main Street stop.
This is where you will find the closest light rail station. Take a westbound train headed toward 19th Avenue and get off at the Veterans Way and College Avenue stop. This will leave you on the eastern edge of campus, and you can take the Fast Forward buses or walk to your desired location.
The Level 550 apartment complex is close to many restaurants and shopping centers, including some large retailers like Walmart. For outdoor recreation, you can head south to Park of the Canals, which runs along the northern banks of the canal. You can also gain access to the Sun Circle Trail from this area.
