San Tropez Apartment Homes
If you drive north from the eastern edge of the Arizona State University Tempe campus, you will reach the San Tropez Apartment Homes in approximately four miles. Located within Scottsdale city limits, this apartment community allows you to enjoy your home life away from campus while remaining within a 10-minute commute in light traffic. Some extra time is needed to cross campus to your final destination and find parking.
To reach the university, go south on Hayden Road until it turns into McClintock Drive. Turn right on University Drive, continuing west until you enter the eastern end of campus. This road will cut through campus and lead you to many restaurants and parks west of the university if you want to explore more of Tempe, or you can turn on the side roads to reach the academic and administrative buildings throughout campus. You’ll find the Sun Devil Stadium, Wells Fargo Arena and Packard Stadium north of University Drive.
While you can bike to the center of the ASU campus in approximately 30 minutes from the San Tropez Apartments, it takes more than an hour to walk. If you don’t have access to a reliable car, you can reach campus in approximately 40 minutes by riding the Valley Metro public bus.
The closest bus stop is near the intersection of Hayden Road and Thomas Road, which is less than a half mile from the apartment complex. Take a route 81 bus heading south on Hayden toward the Chandler Fashion Center. Get off at the McClintock Drive and University Drive bus stop and walk a half mile to the edge of campus.
There are other bus routes leading to campus, but they require you to transfer to a second bus. While this area isn’t close to a light rail station, you can board the train from the transit center in the western region of campus and ride to many points of interest northwest and southeast of campus. There are bus routes covering most main roads surrounding the apartment complex, so you can reach many destinations throughout Scottsdale without owning a car.
If you make the San Tropez Apartments your next home, you will live just one mile from the Continental Golf Club, Coronado Golf Course and Eldorado Park and Community Center. Tempe’s Big Surf Waterpark is approximately two miles to the south along with the Salado Golf Course and Rio Salado Park. The parks and trails positioned on the shores of Tempe Town Lake are also a short drive or bus ride away. Add close proximity to some unusual small restaurants, and you see why this is a popular area for students.
