About Tempe, AZ


Sprawled among the burnt orange buttes of the American southwest is Tempe, an affluent suburb of the greater Phoenix metro area. While it is home to American Airlines’ corporate headquarters and Arizona State University, Tempe’s glossy edifices never detract from the majesty of the surrounding Arizonian desert. The city’s ample outdoor offerings, like boating, golf and horseback riding are matched only by its indoor sporting attractions, including all the college football one could possibly desire.


  • Arizona State University

    Arizona State University is located in Tempe, Arizona just eight miles east of downtown Phoenix. With a student population of over 68,000, it is one of the largest schools in the country. Nearly 85% of all students live off-campus, and the areas near the campus are popular because not only are they close to classes but the neighborhood is very walkable for shopping and restaurants.

    Dining around Campus

    Eating out near the campus is not only close by but you have excellent choices. Mill Avenue has so many that there's bound to be a new favorite near your ASU apartment. Everyone seems to love P.F. Changs with its great Asian food and family style seating.

    Take a bunch of friends or meet some new people. There are great Mexican places like Macayos too. For big nights out, consider going into Phoenix or Old Town Scottsdale - especially when the folks are in town.

    Arizona State is famous for its party scene. If you're out in the bars, they stay open until 1:45 a.m., and most students frequent the Mill Avenue bars because they're close by and varied. Everything from casual to romantic to dancing to dive bars are all on one street. ACME is very good as is Shady Grove's. If you're feeling like really dressing up and going posh, drive into Scottsdale or Phoenix.

    Being a Sun Devil may change your life!

  • Rio Salado College

    Rio Salado Community College

    Truly a college for the new age, Rio Salado offers its classes almost entirely virtually, and although it has over 13,000 students, there are just over 30 full time faculty members. Maricopa County is huge and sometimes remote, and Rio Salado brings education to those who can't come to the usual centers.

    Learn at Home

    However, for those that like to be close to their classes and able to actually speak to their teachers and admin staff when necessary, Rio Salado is located in Tempe, just outside of Phoenix. While Tempe rates only 60 out of 100 for walkability, this matters little when you realize that much of your learning will be done at home, right in your student apartment. For library facilities, Arizona State University is close by.

    Ideal Apartments for Students

    You'll likely want a separate study and sleeping area, to feel that you aren't eating, sleeping and breathing your school work - go for a place with several bedrooms. There are quite a few apartments with up to 3 bedrooms available starting at $600 around Tempe, mostly closer to Phoenix. Vineyard Estates is just under ten miles out of Tempe, and has 3 bedroom apartments for $699 per month, while Grigio Tempe Town Lake is closer to Rio Salado's admin center but slightly more expensive. 3 bedroom, 2 bathroom apartments for rent here are around $1,200 per month.

    Breaks for your Brain in Phoenix

    Getting out and about will be crucial when you are both working and sleeping in your student housing. While there is a greater diversity of activities in Phoenix itself, there are still quite a few choices in Tempe. Go for a simple change of scenery while you brush up on the books at Dutch Bros Coffee, where the Kahlua Kickers are lauded by many, but the staff are considered to be the real asset, with a great friendly team atmosphere. Get away from your computer screen at the Time Out Lounge, one of Tempe's best bars, a mid-priced cash only venue that is good for both private reading time or happy times with friends.

    Look for coffe shop and bar reading material at Changing Hands bookstore, a second-hand and new shop which is actually one of the best-reviewed businesses in Tempe! They have in house book signings, and one of the best metaphysical as well as biographical sections in Phoenix.
