The Standard Apartment Homes
If you want to walk or bike your way to campus and enjoy the many outdoor beauties surrounding Tempe Town Lake, you may consider moving into The Standard Apartment Homes on South Hardy Drive. After walking or biking for a few minutes on Hardy and West 7Th Street, you head east on University Drive until you reach the western edge of campus.
Since University Drive is a main road that cuts through the center of the Tempe campus, it will give you access to the entertainment and athletic complexes located in north campus or the academic and administrative buildings located in south campus. The apartment complex is less than 10 blocks from the edge of campus, so it may take you approximately 15 minutes to reach the intersection of University and Mill Avenue. You will need additional time to reach classes, the library and other campus destinations.
The Standard is a suitable living area if you want to walk to campus and enjoy nearby parks, restaurants and nighttime amusements. If you choose to drive to the campus, you can expect to arrive at the western edge within a minute or two in light traffic.
You may also use the Valley Metro busing system, boarding route 30 buses at the intersection of University and Roosevelt Street. This bus route will take you into the ASU campus if you go east, but you may also head west to find a greater variety of restaurants, parks and entertainment options. From pizza to tacos and fine Mexican dining, University is a haven for food lovers.
Some of the most exciting events occurring on or near the ASU campus are held at the Wells Fargo Arena, Sun Devil Stadium, Whiteman Tennis Center and Packard Stadium. When you live at The Standard, you can walk to all of these destinations as well the golf course and the aquatic complex. You’re also a short walk, drive or bus ride away from the Tempe Beach Park, Tempe Center for the Arts and other riverside attractions.
