Near Pima Freeway/Loop 101 and six miles north of ASU, the Visconti at Camelback apartments make traveling to ASU by car a 15-minute drive. Loop 101 is actually a convenient roadway to use on your way to campus, although traveling on surface streets during morning rush hour will save you a minute or two. Since your apartments are north of the campus, you’ll hit northeast campus first and sites such as Packard Baseball Stadium and Karsten Golf Course. If you continue south, you’ll reach University Drive, which bisects the campus and leads to dozens of other ASU buildings.
While public transportation is convenient, it will add to your commute time. Most bus routes to campus take 45 to 55 minutes, but they’ll save you hundreds of dollar on on-campus parking passes. The quickest transit method is using the Camelback Trolley to access Route 72 buses at Camelback and Scottsdale roads. Route 72 stops near the university first at the baseball stadium, then travels west along University Drive and by the campus health services building and Physical Sciences Center. The bus then heads north to campus sites such as Sun Devil Stadium.
While biking to campus only takes 35 to 45 minutes, there are some significant descents and climbs. Unless you are an avid cyclist, it’s probably best to drive or take the bus to campus.
Scottsdale’s Visconti at Camelback apartments are close to many shops, cafes and services.
