Tempe Apartments are just two miles west of ASU’s campus, so getting to the university is simple. Walking to ASU takes about 40 minutes and is a straight shot east along University Drive. This route takes you directly to campus sites such as the College of Design buildings, Wrigley Hall and the Center for Family Studies.
Biking to campus is probably the most convenient way to access the university. Again, you’ll travel directly along University Drive, which bisects most of campus. The ride to the western edge of ASU takes about 11 minutes, and there are plenty of bike services available on campus.
Driving to the university is a quick six minutes, but parking on campus costs several hundreds of dollars for an annual pass. A better alternative is the efficient local transit system. You’ll walk about six minutes to get to the eastbound Bus Route 30 stop. The bus ride takes 13 minutes. If you don’t mind a little longer ride, you can also get to campus via Route 48 buses. You’ll access these buses by walking 10 minutes to the bus stop at 48th and Rio Salado. This bus drops you near the northwestern area of campus, close to ASU sites such as Sun Devil Stadium and Desert Arboretum Park. This route takes 18 minutes and involves a few minutes’ walk to campus from the drop-off point.
At Tempe Apartments, you’re just three blocks east of the Hohokam Expressway, and you’re just minutes from recreation on the Salt River. Conveniences are easily accessible, too, with Denny’s, QuikTrip, Arizona Sandwich Company and Grand Canyon University Bookstore within three blocks of the apartments. As you continue a few more blocks east toward campus, you’ll find a wide variety of additional restaurants and stores, including Rally’s, Subway, Circle K, Allstate Insurance and Harlow’s Cafe.
