The Miramonte Apartments are located approximately eight miles north of the Arizona State University in the city of Scottsdale. The most direct route to the Tempe campus is from North Hayden Road. Travel south to East McDowell Road, and then turn right. Travel one block to Scottsdale Road and turn left. This road will take you across Tempe Town Lake and into the northern section of campus.
Scottsdale will turn into Rural Road after your cross Rio Salado Parkway. This roadway cuts directly through campus, so you can use the side roads to reach your final destination.

You may save up to five minutes if you take the AZ-101 loop southbound to Scottsdale Drive.
If you don’t have personal transportation and want to reach ASU by bus, expect the trip to take about 50 minutes. You can take a bike on the bus if you want to ride around campus upon arrival, or you can use the Fast Forward buses to get to your final campus destination.
