Riverview Park Apartments
Head east from the northeastern edge of the Arizona State University Tempe campus, and you will reach the Riverview Park Apartments on North Dobson Road in three miles. This location is convenient to AZ-101 and AZ-202, and it places you close enough to campus to enjoy the activity of university life. The commute to ASU takes less than 10 minutes without traffic, and you can reach downtown Phoenix in approximately 20 minutes without traffic.
To reach the eastern edge of campus, take Dobson Road south to University Drive, continuing west on University until you reach the school. This eastern entrance takes you by University Place and allows you to easily access all academic buildings, administrative offices and sports complexes.
If you need to reach the northernmost regions of campus or want to visit the parks and walking trails along Tempe Town Lake, take Dobson Road north to Rio Salado Parkway. Go west until you reach your final destination.
You can bike from the Riverview Park Apartments to the eastern edge of the ASU campus in under 20 minutes, and it takes about an hour to walk. If you don’t have a car, you can use the light rail or public buses to reach campus in under 40 minutes. Buses also operate on most roads surrounding the apartment complex, allowing you to easily reach most restaurants, parks and businesses in the local area.
The closest bus stop is on Dobson near the apartment complex. You can catch a route 96 bus heading south on Dobson toward Pecos to reach the closest light rail station. Exit the bus at the Main Street and Mall Entrance stop, and then walk to the corner of Main and Sycamore to board a westbound train headed toward 19th Avenue and Dunlap. Get off at the College Avenue and Veterans Way station, which will leave you at the western edge of the ASU campus.
If you can walk or find a ride to the University Road and Dobson Road intersection, you can take a route 30 bus headed west on University directly to campus. There are multiple stops along University once you enter campus grounds.
The Riverview Park Apartments are one block away from Riverview Lake and Park, and the Mesa Country Club is approximately three miles to the east. This is a convenient location for bars and restaurants serving the university population, but there are also multiple public schools in the surrounding area. This includes Carson Junior High, Whittier Elementary and Webster Elementary.
