Elliot’s Crossing Apartments
The Elliot’s Crossing Apartments are located approximately five miles south of the Arizona State University Tempe campus and less than three miles from the Maricopa and Superstition Freeways. This location is convenient for students, teachers and university staff as well as professionals commuting to other areas of Tempe. While it’s close enough to ensure a short drive to university events, it caters to those not interested in living directly on campus.
If you’re traveling to ASU for classes or want to reach the Wells Fargo Arena and sporting complexes located in the northern regions of campus, go north on South Kyrene Road until you reach West Southern Avenue. Go east on Southern for one block, turning northbound on South Mill Avenue. This road runs along the western edge of campus and will lead you to University Drive. Turn on University to cut through the center of campus, branching off on side roads to reach your final destination.
If you want to reach the southeastern edge of campus near the Vista Del Sol parking garage and the university housing, take Kyrene Road to West Guadalupe Road, and then go east on Guadalupe to South Rural Road. This road runs straight through campus and will lead across Tempe Town River so that you can enjoy the marina, Phoenix Zoo and many outdoor recreational areas perfect for hiking and picnicking.
There are many restaurants within walking distance, but you will need a car or bus pass to reach ASU. It takes approximately 15 minutes to reach campus by car with light traffic. If you take the bus, you can reach the corner of Mill Avenue and University Drive in approximately 25 minutes. The closest bus stop is at the corner of Kyrene Road and Grove Parkway, and a route 65 bus headed toward the Lone Butte Casino on Kyrene will take you directly to campus.
ASU is a bike-friendly area, and the buses do have exterior bike racks. You can also board the train at the light rail station on University Drive. The train will take you to many entertainment venues and restaurants northwest and southeast of campus.
The Elliot’s Crossing Apartments are less than two miles from the Benedict Sports Complex at Compadre High School, the Ken McDonald Golf Course, Celaya Park and the Kiwanis Recreation Center and Park. Many shopping centers and major retail stores are a short walk or bus ride away, and there are restaurants serving a variety of ethnic foods in the area.
