Start your day with chilled brew coffee from Cartel Coffee Lab - it’s the best way to quench your thirst on a hot day. Enjoy the sunshine at Tempe Beach Park, then swing by Changing Hands Bookstore to buy the books you need for class. Take in some culture with an indie production at Stray Cat Theatre or a bigger Broadway show at ASU’s beautiful Gammage Theater. Stop off at House of Tricks for the best tuna melt in town, then hike up “A” Mountain for a memorable, moon-lit view of the city.
From Alight Tempe, you can stroll to class in about 20 minutes, or bike it in five minutes. When you’re in a hurry, jump on the air-conditioned Light Rail as campus is just two stops away, and you can ride one stop further to reach bustling downtown Tempe.
Back home at Alight Tempe, freshen up in your ensuite bathroom, then take a dip in one of two swimming pools, or work off the stress of your busy day in the fitness club, where the private TVs and iPod connections will keep you occupied while you workout.
If you’re in the mood to take it easy, relax in the hot tub, then stop off in the games room to play pool, shuffleboard, Wii or Xbox with your roommates. When the sun sets, head upstairs to the rooftop lounge to enjoy Tempe’s balmy evening weather. Get together with friends around the firepits and swap stories about your day while toasting marshmallows.
You’ll find everything you need to cook dinner in your fully equipped kitchen; eat in comfort in the dining area, or head outside to the patio. Watch TV in the comfortable living area, or take advantage of the Wi-Fi and catch up with your classwork in your peaceful private room. If you prefer to work in a group, take your books to the study rooms, then print off your notes in the resident business center.
It’s easy to manage your money because all bills are included in your rent, and there’s a washer dryer in every room to help you keep on top of your laundry. The on-site management team are always on hand to help, and there’s secure door entry to keep you extra safe.
