River Ranch Apartments
You’ll find the River Ranch Apartments approximately eight miles south of the Arizona State University campus in Tempe. Though the apartments are located in the city of Chandler, you can still reach the western edge of campus within 20 minutes in light traffic. This location also offers easy access to I-10, AZ-101 and AZ-202, and the drive to downtown Phoenix is less than 30 minutes in light traffic.
To reach the ASU campus from the apartment complex, go north on Kyrene Road to South Mill Avenue. Mill runs along the western border of campus, giving you access to all university buildings. If you turn right on University Drive, you can drive straight through campus. The Wells Fargo Arena, aquatics facilities and sports arenas are located north of University, and you’ll find most of the academic buildings and administrative offices to the south.
It takes close to an hour to bike to the ASU campus from the River Ranch Apartments, so you may want to take the bus to campus if you don’t have a car. The closest bus stop is just minutes away at the corner of Kyrene and Gila Springs Boulevard North. Take a route 66 but headed north on Kyrene toward Tempe TC. Get off at the Mill Avenue and University Drive stop, which places you on the western border of campus. You can then walk to any point on campus or take a Fast Forward bus.
You can also take the Valley Metro buses to reach most points of interest in Chandler, Tempe, Phoenix and surrounding cities. You may need to change buses multiple times to reach some destinations.
The River Ranch Apartments are located approximately two miles west of Desert Breeze Park and about one mile north of Nozomi Park. There are many shopping centers and retail stores close by on Chandler Boulevard, and nearby schools include Corona Del Sol High, Kyrene De La Mariposa Elementary and Kyrene Aprende Middle. The local area is home to some bars and coffee shops as well as restaurants serving salads, pizza, Thai and Mexican.
