You’ll find the Sorrento Apartments on South Dobson Road in Mesa, Arizona. This location is just over four miles southeast of the Arizona State University campus in Tempe, and downtown Phoenix is about 17 miles to the northwest. With easy access to US-60 and the AZ-101 and AZ-202 Loops, this is an attractive residential area for those commuting to nearby cities or visiting the university on a regular basis.
To reach the ASU campus, you should travel north on Dobson to University Drive. Continue west on University until you arrive at the eastern edge of campus near Cornerstone Mall. To reach the Wells Fargo Arena or the aquatics complex, turn north on East Veterans Way from University. To reach most academic and administrative buildings, turn south from University.
If you prefer to enter campus from the south, you can take Dobson north to West Broadway Road. Take Broadway west until you reach Rural Road, and then go north on Rural until you reach your desired area of campus. This road turns into Scottsdale on the northern end of campus and will take you past Tempe Town Lake to a mountainous region filled with golf courses, walking trails and attractions like the Phoenix Zoo.
While you can bike to the edge of the ASU campus in approximately 25 minutes from this location, it can take more than an hour to walk. If you don’t have access to a reliable car, you can take the Valley Metro bus to campus in approximately 50 minutes. If you bus to the light rail station, you can reach campus in approximately 30 minutes.
The closest bus stop is near the intersection of Dobson and Emelita Avenue. Dobson is serviced by bus route 96, and you should board a northbound bus heading toward Mesa Riverview. If you want to transfer to the light rail, get off at the Mall Entrance stop and walk to the corner of Main Street and Sycamore. Take the westbound train toward 19th Avenue and Dunlap, and get off at the Veterans Way and College Avenue station on campus.
If you prefer to transfer to a second bus, get off the route 96 bus at the 2nd Street stop. Take a route 30 bus headed west on University Drive toward South Mountain CC, arriving at campus when you reach the University and Mill Avenue stop.
