Arizona State University Area Apartments for Rent(hide college information)
A school carved out of the desert, Arizona State University Tempe balances its rugged surroundings with wide pedestrian malls, a top-rated public art collection, and an arboretum that surrounds the campus. The architecture adds a dramatic flair to the campus with impressive buildings such as Old Main, the oldest building on campus, a Victorian structure built in 1898 and listed on the National Register of Historic Places. The Grady Gammage Memorial Auditorium was designed by Frank Lloyd Wright and holds the distinction of being his last public commission.
Arizona State University is one of the largest public universities – and one of the top rated — in the country. Established in 1885, Tempe is the original and largest of the four campuses. Athletics plays a huge role in campus life, and during football season crowds of fans pack the Sun Devil Stadium to watch the Pac-10 Champions, the Sun Devils.
As an urban campus, ASU students enjoy a well-developed public transit system as well as a wide variety of surrounding shops, restaurants, nightclubs, and businesses. In an area dominated by mountains and buttes, Tempe offers a wide variety of outdoor activities, including mountain biking and rock climbing.
