The Place on Jentilly
Living in the apartments at The Place on Jentilly places you within walking or driving distance of Arizona State University as well as many restaurants and sports bars serving the student and teacher population. The apartments are located on Jentilly Lane, and you can reach campus by traveling west on East Vista Del Cerro Drive and then going north on Rural Road.
Rural goes through campus and turns into North Scottsdale Road after you cross over Rio Salado Parkway, so it’s also the road you will take when venturing north of the Tempe Town Lake. There are many outdoor amusements to enjoy on both sides of the water, including the Tempe Beach Park, the ASU Karsten Golf Course, the Tempe Town Lake Marina and Rio Salado Park.
If you turn on University Drive from Rural Road, you will have a direct route through the campus going north or south. You will find most teaching buildings and administrative services south of this road while most of the athletic and entertainment venues are to the north. You can turn off University Drive onto East Veterans Way to reach the Sun Devil Stadium, aquatics center, Wells Fargo Arena and other features of the north campus.
If you want to walk or bike to the ASU Tempe campus, The Place on Jentilly is an apartment complex worth considering. The walk is just over half a mile, so you can reach the southern edge of campus within 10 minutes. The academic region is located throughout the southern half of the campus, and this area is set up to accommodate bicycles as well as golf carts. If you choose to drive to campus, you will reach the southern parking lots within five minutes in light traffic.
You can also depend on the Valley Metro bus system to get you to campus or to restaurants and parks in the surrounding area. It takes approximately five minutes to walk from Jentilly Lane to the corner of Rural Road and Broadway Road, which is the closest bus stop. Bus route 72 will provide transportation to all destinations located on or near Rural, including Walmart and many popular restaurants.
In addition to serving the university community, the apartments on Jentilly Lane are convenient for younger residents. Nearby schools include Our Lady of Mount Carmel Catholic, Connolly Middle and McClintock High. Daley Park is positioned less than a mile to the west, and you’ll find St. Luke’s Hospital just over a mile away next to Tempe High School.
