62 Dorms have been the norm for numerous students this year, but for many it is time to make the transition to student apartment housing. Journalism freshman Cara Popeski is one of those students. When Popeski moved from her hometown of Tucson into the dorms this year, she said it was both exhilarating and nerve-wracking. “The very first night living away from home, I was so excited to finally have a chance to not live in the same house I grew up in with my family, and then I ended up having a really hard time falling asleep just that first night (staying in the dorms),” she said. Popeski said she really enjoyed living in the dorms this year and has met many people through the process. “Being in the dorms has been really fun just because that’s where I’ve met the majority of my friends,” she said.

The dorm was an ideal stepping-stone from living at home with parents to having freedom, but not all the responsibility, she added. “It’s kind of nice because it’s like a medium step from going between living at home to being completely on your own,” she said. “I feel the independence of not being with my family but I also still have food whenever I need it and I’m not in charge of taking care of an entire house. I have one room like I did at home.” Now that the time has come to move out of the dorm, Popeski said she is looking forward to having her own space in the student apartment housing. There is one thing Popeski is especially looking forward to.

Students Say Goodbye to Dorms

“I am really excited about having my own kitchen, and I’m glad that it’s so close to campus,” she said. Biology freshman Mckenzie Liberty-Bibbens is also going to be making the move to student apartment housing. The main things that Liberty-Bibbens is looking forward to are things that students living with family might take for granted. “I am really, really excited to have my own room and bathroom and to have a kitchen ... it will be nice to make our own food,” she said.

Transportation

How accessible is public transportation in the area you are thinking about moving to? How much will you be spending on public transportation if you do not have access to a vehicle or bike? These are all important questions whether you have access to a vehicle or not.

Management

Think about the staff and their reputation. How friendly and helpful are they? Is there a roommate selection process? Will they be willing to help if you are not satisfied with your living situation? Also, ask about maintenance staff and their duties.

Atmosphere

there outdoor areas if needed? Be considerate of neighbors with regards to noise & cleanliness.

Safety

This should be one of your priorities. You want good lighting and somewhere you will feel safe and comfortable walking outside. Visit the property during the day and night to get a general feel of the area. Ask your future neighbors how safe the area is.

Some communities do not adhere to quiet hours and cleanliness as much as others. Are there designated study rooms? Are all units in one building or multiple buildings where you can stay clear of some noise?

Off-Campus Student Resident Apartment Reviews

Alight Tempe

Alight Tempe is a unique living experience because there is a mix of ASU students, community college students, and young professionals. Getting to campus is only a 5-minute light rail or a 15-minute bike ride. Alight Tempe is very affordable and has amazing renewal dates. The best place to hang out is at the pool or the clubhouse. Ping-pong and pool tournaments are serious business. The environment around Alight Tempe is calm but fun. If you are a serious student and enjoy having a good place to study, the 2nd-floor study lounge has computers, a kitchen, and whiteboard tables. One of the downfalls about this property is the locations of trash bins across the property. Alight Tempe has a basketball court on the 5th floor of the parking garage with a 360 view of Tempe. Dawn - Sophomore, Major: Medical Studies Scout - Sophomore, Major: Marketing (Professional Sales)

District on Apache

The District on Apache is an excellent apartment complex only steps’ away from ASU’s Tempe campus. The District has numerous amenities for all of its residents such as a lazy river, multilevel gym, sauna, golf simulator and many others. The staff at the District also host many special events throughout the month ranging from cookie decorating to jeopardy so residents will never be bored. District offers a wide variety of housing options ranging from 4x4 to 1x1 bedrooms and everything in between. The District offers on-site parking to all residences for an additional charge and is pet friendly. As someone who has lived at the District on Apache for three years, I can honestly say it is an amazing place to call home! Check it out to see if it meets your housing needs. Marcus - Senior, Major: Supply Chain Management


Student Experience

The Hyve

Living at The Hyve is the best housing experience I have had in my time at ASU. The quality of the housing is spectacular, which is apparent when first taking a tour. The staff is infectiously upbeat and the community of people living here reflect that tone as well. Most days there are people studying in the lounge and the community is a place pet lovers would enjoy. This is primarily a community of graduate students and post-docs, so while they do throw large, bombastic events about every quarter, the community engagement is kept at a much lower level then peer housing communities. There are only a few precious guest parking spots, but this is Tempe after all. Maintenance is really starting to show some cracks; the lounge TV flickers incessantly when you try and use the HDMI input. There are missing electrical plate covers, and when alerted to this, it’s been largely ignored. Despite this complex being new and having a fresh-faced staff, it can do significantly better in terms of upkeep of its assets. Rio- Graduate Student, Major: Urban Planning & Public Administration

Gateway

My time at Gateway has been a great experience. I have met and made many resident friends at the pool area, which is a resort style pool. The maintenance and overall lifestyle at Gateway is peaceful and fun. There is a direct shuttle to the University and the apartments are nice and affordable with electricity and Internet included in the rent. Be sure to ask for specific details on electricity and Internet use. This pet-friendly community has many dogs on the property and offers a dog park at the edge of the property. The property is about a mile from campus, which can be a slight inconvenience for some students. Some of the units are a little old, so they do not look as modern as some of the newer properties in the area. Overall, this property meets the needs of residents on a budget. Jai - Junior, Major: Computer Science Japlan - Sophomore, Major: Journalism and Mass Communication

Paseo

We have been living at Paseo for almost two years now and it is one of the best off-campus apartment complexes for ASU students and other residents as well. The best part about living at Paseo is its proximity to the ASU Tempe campus and the affordable prices they offer. The management offers great renewal offers for the current residents. There are two wellmaintained swimming pools, which are open 24 hours, 365 days a year. The complex is also very close to the Phoenix Airport. The management has changed multiple times since we have been here and the new management is very efficient and is trying to understand the problems faced by the residents, working to resolve them at the earliest opportunity. There will be many upcoming additions like places to relax, grill, and wider walkways through major renovation. The apartments are spacious, neat and friendly. In addition, there have been many cases of bike thefts at Paseo so our advice will be to keep your bikes in your apartments. Having listed the above pros and cons about Paseo, we still consider it a very convenient place to live off campus. Naman - Graduate, Major: Industrial Engineering Sreekar - Graduate, Major: Industrial Engineering

The Fleetwood

The Fleetwood is a large condo style apartment complex located less than a mile from the east side of campus. The apartment has a pool, mailroom, accessible parking, an elevator, a small gym, and some outdoor community spaces. You can pay extra for underground parking and you are expected to pay an extra fee for valet trash services. I enjoy the smart devices such as the door lock and lights that come included with the apartment. Traveling to campus from The Fleetwood is always quick, whether it be via walking 15 minutes, a short 5 minute drive, or riding on the city bus that picks up right outside. Groceries are within walking distance as well as some local restaurants. When I got into the apartment, the complex was struggling with a community wide roach problem, but when Mark Taylor took over management, I noticed a sheer drop in the amount of bugs. The management is kind and works very fast to resolve issues. The apartment can feel a bit like a hotel from time to time as the walls are a bit thin, the doors slam, and the pool can be noisy. But, I’ve enjoyed my time at the apartment, the distance from campus and the square footage are unbeatable. Noah - Senior, Major: Environmental Design Felix - Senior, Major: Urban Planning

Redpoint

Redpoint gives students the option of living in an off campus apartment with more of a townhome feel. It’s not just the resort style pool / hot tub or the safe feeling of a gate community that drove me to Redpoint. It’s also the fact that I do not have to walk down a long hallway or take an elevator to get to my apartment. Redpoint is somewhat far from campus, about a ten-minute drive. So if you don’t have a car it could be a hassle to get to the closest grocery store which isn’t very close, or getting to a job. However, we have a convenient shuttle that goes to and from campus all day so you never have to worry about how to get to school. In the past, there used to be only one location to dispose of trash which was hard for residents who lived in units far away. Now, we have trash shoots outside of every unit so you never have to worry about walking to a dumpster, thanks to the staff that listens to the needs of residents. All of these things have made my college experience of living in a townhome amazing. Michael - Graduate, Major: Family & Human Development Shayna - Sophomore, Major: Communications

Rise on Apache

Living at Rise on Apache offers a short walk to ASU campus, an important factor for students without a vehicle. Rise offers many amenities to make your stay more enjoyable. From the state-of-the art gym, tanning beds, ski stimulator, study rooms on every floor, and even a rooftop running track, Rise is an appealing option for those looking to balance a healthy lifestyle with academics. Not to mention, our rooftop pool, equipped with a Jumbo Tron screen, fire pits, grilling stations, and a hot tub is the perfect place to unwind after classes! Although maintenance issues or noise complaints may arise, the leasing office is more than capable of resolving issues in a friendly, professional manner. Rise makes an active effort to get to know residents through their countless events hosted throughout the year! These events range from: door-to-door trick or treating (Halloween), paint nights, and much more! Personally, I am very satisfied with living at Rise. Sarah - Junior, Major: Global Studies

Villas on Apache

The Villas on Apache is a great community found within walking distance of the University. During the warmer season, many residents are seen lying in the sun by the pool while in the cooler weather; residents can be found enjoying the pool table in the entertainment room. The management team responds quickly to maintenance requests and provides security to the community with a gate and security guards. You can also find seasonal holiday events at the leasing office where they give out free catered food and prizes to residents. Jasmine - Sophomore, Major: Management Britni - Senior, Major: Business Law

Vertex

Living at Vertex is great property within walking distance of the University. If you want to get to the North side of campus, you can take Terrace Road. If you want to get to the South side of campus, you can take Lemon. Vertex is a fun apartment complex that offers many activities and amenities to residents such as ping-pong, billiards, pool, and BBQ areas. If you are interested in meeting new people and getting involved with the community, Vertex offers a variety of events. The management is nice and they are very responsive when it comes to helping you with your move in, or other issues and requests. The maintenance team is very timely in regards to service requests. They sometimes come the same day when I put in a maintenance request. The rooms are big and spacious, but parking is minimal. This property offers a lot of bang for your buck. Austin - Junior, Major: Supply Chain Management

Union Tempe

Union Tempe is one of the newest apartment complexes with a mixture of ASU students and families. The apartments are steps away from campus, located at the corner of University Drive and Forest Ave. They have a wide range of housing options from furnished four bedrooms to an unfurnished condo. Union has various amenities offered for residents: community gym, clubhouse area with billiards, a dog washing station in the parking garage, and a pool deck with a hot tub. The elevators are sometimes hard to use and break down occasionally. In addition, the management does not host as many community events as other apartment complexes. There is a parking garage with resident parking available; however, some levels are open to the public. Emily - Senior, Major: Mechanical Engineering Mason - Junior, Major: Business Management

West 6th

West 6th provides students with all of the amenities that Downtown Tempe has to offer, along with the close proximity to Tempe campus. This is a high-rise apartment community that has stellar views of Tempe. The downside to that is the wait for the elevators. Tower 1 has 22 floors and Tower 2 has 30 floors, so be sure to plan extra time and account for that in your daily routine. Parking can be purchased directly from West 6th for the underground garage or the City of Tempe has above the ground parking, which is a cheaper option. Amenities like the fitness room, steam room, game room, business center and grills are all nice and well maintained. The entire process, from signing the lease to move-in, was seamless as management and staff worked hard to ensure all the needs were met. The front desk/leasing consultants are friendly and very conversational. Beerjas- Senior, Major: Economics & Bio-Medical Engineering


16 interested in the same things I am and working to the same things I am is a very supportive environment.” Rates for living on-campus at Tempe can range from $5,970 to $8,575 for a full academic year for non-Barrett students, according to University Housing.

The choice between on-campus housing and off-campus living options is long-standing and, depending on a student’s schedule and lifestyle habits, there are positives and negatives to each option. According to the University Housing website, all first-year freshmen are expected to live on campus and ASU guarantees them housing. However, for many students, the end of freshman year also marks the end of living on campus, meaning that the option of offcampus living like leasing an apartment or house nearby comes into play. For first-time freshman students, adding on a meal plan is a required expense, meaning that a cost of a couple extra thousand dollars is tacked on as well.

Housing rates for Barrett, the Honors College students at the Tempe campus range from $8,100 to $10,420 for a full academic year. When it comes to off-campus living, apartment complexes surrounding the Tempe campus such as 922 Place, The District on Apache, West

Choosing Student Housing Involves a Trade-off Between Cost and Convenience

Grace Ramsey, a criminology and criminal justice sophomore, said she’s glad she continued living on campus after her freshman year. “Being a two minute walk from all of my classes is incredibly convenient,” she said. “I honestly just love the culture and experience of living on a college campus. There’s always activities to do, you live down the hall from your best friends and you live with your best friend.” Ramsey said the convenience of living on campus carries from her academic life to her social life as well. “It makes me a very involved student,” she said. “To always know what’s going on and always have people surrounding me that are

By Kimberly Rapanut 6th and Rise on Apache, have all been hotspots for undergraduates. Rates for off-campus apartments show more variety and come with more options in terms of floor plans compared to traditional on-campus residence halls. For most apartments around campus, a lease lasts 11.5 months with payments typically divided into 12 equal installments, but different complexes may offer differing accommodations. ASU also provides resources for students


Student Experience when they decide to undergo the process of transitioning to off-campus living. “ASU Student Media Off-campus housing division staff stands ready to support students in making the transition from living on-campus in residential colleges to off-campus housing in the surrounding communities,” said ASU Housing spokesperson Kellie Cloud in an email. “The ASU Student Media Off-campus housing division staff provides assistance with locating housing and finding roommates that meet their needs.” At 922 Place, the price of a one bedroom, one bathroom apartment is $1,329 per month, according to its website. Rates for a shared living space of two bedrooms and two bathrooms start at $864 per person per month and increase in price with various layouts. One would spend $15,948 at 922 Place in order to live in a one bedroom, one bathroom apartment for a year. While monthly payments typically cover utilities such as internet, cable, water and sewer fees, costs like groceries and cleaning supplies are not factored in. Justin Aungst, a junior studying art studies with a focus in photography, said choosing to live in an off-campus apartment was more practical than the dorms for his situation. “The biggest reason why (I chose to live off campus) was that it was cheaper,” he said. “And I got more space and didn’t have to share a room with someone.” Aungst said despite missing out on the social aspect that comes with living in the dorms, living on his own isn’t something he regrets. “I’m sure I did miss out on stuff but I didn’t think of it as big deal to me,” he said. “I definitely preferred living in an apartment.” For some students, choosing to forego both options and live at home is the best choice. Aira Valera, a speech and hearing science

freshman, said that aside from dealing with rush hour traffic, living at home was best for her situation. “It was the best thing for me financially,” she said. “I didn’t want to take out loans to dorm and I didn’t think ASU was that far (from home), and it’s not. I’d rather just pay for gas than pay thousands.” Valera said while at times she thinks about the benefits of living on campus instead of staying at home, she doesn’t regret her decision. “I like living at home because I don’t have to pay for rent,” she said. “My mom makes a lot of food. It’s just that simple stuff I don’t have to pay for.” Valera said that while living at home works for her, students should consider many factors when deciding where they want to live while in college. “If someone is concerned about finances and money then I say to just live at home,” she said. “But if you want more of an experience and money is not an issue then (live at the) dorms.”

20 The Tempe Fire Department is concerned about your safety both on and off campus. When choosing off- campus housing, ensure that fire safety plays a role in your efforts to choose an apartment, just as you consider crime prevention issues. Since January of 2000, 100 students have died in campus-related fires in the United States, with almost 80 percent occurring in off-campus housing, according to Campus Firewatch, a monthly newsletter focusing on the complex issues of campus fire safety. Four factors have been identified in a number of the off-campus fires: • Lack of automatic fire sprinklers • Missing or disabled smoke alarms • Careless disposal of smoking materials • Impaired judgment from alcohol consumption With ASU being the largest university in the nation, we are not immune from the dangers of fire, as evidenced by two near tragic fires in off-campus housing during the 2006 fall semester. Some or all of the factors identified above were involved in the Tempe fires. One fire involved a condominium in which two students were physically rescued by firefighters and suffered severe smoke inhalation, requiring lengthy stays in the Maricopa County Hospital Burn Unit. In the second serious off- campus fire, one student was seriously injured when she was forced to jump from a second floor patio to escape the flames.

couches and chairs for cigarettes that may be smoldering, and dispose of cigarette butts properly. • Do not overload extension cords, it may cause them to overheat. • Make sure you have a fire extinguisher and that you know how to use it. Additionally, you can call the Tempe Fire Department’s Fire Prevention and Public Fire Safety Education Division at 480-858-7200 for additional information and/or request your apartment complex complete a fire inspection. Choose and maintain a fire safe environment for your residence while attending Arizona State University.

The Dangers of Hoarding

The issue of residential hoarding is a real problem all around the Valley and Tempe Fire is reaching out to the community to raise awareness of this growing problem and to communicate that help is available. Tempe firefighters have experienced many cases of hoarding. It is a dangerous trend that risks the lives of firefighters and residents alike. People with friends or loved ones who may have a problem with hoarding can seek help from the Arizona Hoarding Task Force at 602-778-3363 or www.azhoarding.com. This collaboration of agencies provides links to research, support groups and personal organization services. Tempe residents also can find help through the city’s Care 7 Victim Assistance program at 480350-8032 or www.tempe.gov/care7.

Fire Safety

There is a great deal of choice when it comes to selecting off-campus housing. Consider the added protection provided by automatic fire sprinklers. Know that smoke detectors are required in all rental housing units in Tempe, and ask that the unit be tested to ensure that it is working before you select the apartment. Ask when the last fire inspection was done on the building and do not hesitate to ask to see the Fire Department’s Inspection Form so that you can be knowledgeable about any noted violations of the fire code.

Basic steps in fire safety include:

Not sleeping in a building without a working smoke detector. • Know two ways out of any building that you are in, whether it is your house, apartment, theater or night club. • After a gathering, check seat cushions on

How do I report an emergency?

A: 9-1-1 is the phone number to call to report a fire, police or medical emergency. 9-1-1 is initially answered by the Tempe Police Department, regardless of the emergency you are reporting. However, if you are reporting a fire or medical emergency, you will immediately be connected to a Fire, Medical, Rescue Department.

How often should a fire extinguisher be replaced/serviced? A: There are no requirements for personal residences, but it is recommended that they be visually checked every year to make sure there are no cracks or rust and to make sure the pin is still in the green. After 10 years or so the extinguisher should be replaced. For more on fire prevention and saftey, visit cfo.asu.edu/fire-prevention-safety

Safety

Personal Safety The Tempe Police Departments, Crime Prevention Unit would like to provide you with 3 basic personal safety rules and the following crime prevention information: Do stay alert. Keep your mind on your In Your Home:

• surroundings, who’s in front of you and who’s behind you. Don’t get distracted. If you’re worried about crime, ask a friend to accompany you when you go out. • Do communicate the message that you’re calm, confident, and know where you’re going. Stand tall, walk purposefully, and make quick eye contact with people around you. • Do trust your instincts. If you feel uncomfortable in a place or situation, leave.

When Walking:

• Plan the safest route to your destination and use it. Choose well lit busy streets and avoid using vacant lots, alleys, or construction sites. Take the long way if it’s the safest. • Know your neighborhood. Find out what stores and restaurants are open late and where the police and fire stations are. • Carry your purse close to your body and keep a firm grip on it. Carry a wallet in an inside coat or side trouser pocket, not in a rear trouser pocket. • Don’t flaunt expensive jewelry or clothing. • Walk facing traffic so you can see approaching cars. • Don’t overburden yourself with packages and groceries that make it hard to react. • Have your car or house key in hand as you approach your vehicle or home. • If you suspect you’re being followed by someone on foot, cross the street and head for the nearest well lit, populated area. Walk quickly or run to a house or store to call the police. • If you are being followed by someone in a car, change direction immediately and make a visible point of writing down the license number. Self Defense offers programs: http://www.rad-systems.com/rad_programs.html

• You should not automatically open your door when someone knocks, especially if you’re alone. Know who is outside and use the eye viewer. • Keep your windows locked when you are away and while sleeping. • When away or at home, draw your blinds or curtains to prevent thieves from seeing your valuables. • Never remain in the laundry room in an apartment community alone.

Take Action Today!

If you see a crime being committed, call the police immediately at 9-1-1. Be sure to report all suspicious activity to our non emergency line at (480) 350-8311. You and your neighbors are safe when you look out for each other!

Safety Escort Service

Many students attend evening courses or stay after hours on campus. As part of its Campus Safety Initiative, the ASU Parents Association supports the operational costs of the Safety Escort Service on the Tempe campus of ASU.

Bicycle Safety Tips Plan your route

Choose a route that is safe and comfortable for you to cycle on. It could be a road or trail.

2

Ride in the same direction as cars

Riding with the flow of traffic is safer, legal, courteous and smart. It reduces the speed of cars relative to your bike and puts you where drivers are looking for traffic.

Bicycle on the road

If you don’t feel safe cycling on a particular road, choose a parallel route that you do feel safe on, or walk your bicycle on the sidewalk.

4

Be visible at night, dusk and in the rain

Follow all traffic signs, lights and laws

Be aware of what is going on around you

Look over your shoulder. Signal with your arm. Go when safe.

7

Be courteous

Pass on the left, give plenty of space and an audible signal. Yield to pedestrians. Bicycle slowly on the campus mall, and walk your bike in walk only zones.

Wear a helmet, sunglasses and sunscreen

It’s best to be fully protected in case of an accident or harsh sun, even on cloudy days.

10

5

Never wear earbuds/headphones, text, or use a cell phone while cycling. This helps you stay alert and aware of your surroundings.

Turn responsibly

8

3

Have a front white light, rear red light, bicycle reflectors and wear light colored/ reflective clothing.

Bikers must abide by all laws drivers do. Come to a complete stop at stop signs and walk your bicycle through crosswalks and on sidewalks.

Lease

A lease is a legal binding document that specifies the terms and conditions agreed upon by a tenant and landlord. Everybody who stays in a rental must have a lease. A landlord can be an individual, a housing community or property management company. Depending on the landlord, the lease can be on an apartment, home or for a room within a home and can have more than one name on it. For example, when a room is shared between two people. There are fees associated with signing a lease, so make sure you understand what you are obligated to provide financially when you sign or if you were to cancel or sublease.

Sublease

Zip Code Use

An important note about tracking, ordering and receiving packages is to be sure to enter the correct zip code. Around the Tempe campus there are 85281 and 85282. Downtown Phoenix campus is 85004 while West Campus is 85069

Home Away from Home: A Resource for International Students

Subleasing (Subletting or Re-letting) is when the person whose name is on the lease finds another person to pay the monthly rent. That person is the subtenant. This can happen if a student needs to leave and cannot break the lease. It can be a great way to ensure you don’t lose money. Subleasing is different from transfer of a lease where a tenant breaks the lease before the contract period and it’s transferred to somebody else. As a subtenant, you’ll have the same rights as the original renter. It is important to sign any documents at the leasing office or in front of the landlord. Not all places offer subleasing as an option. Make sure to be aware of your rights and for a quick reference on laws, students should refer to AZ Department of Housing website and review this guide’s Contacts and Resources on page 49.

Transportation

via an app called “Transit”. The Arizona Motor Vehicle Division provides services to obtain a driver’s license, on completion of a computer based test followed by a practical driving test. A license can be a useful tool for a student to have in case he/she has trips to make for college purposes and enables them to drive legally around the United States.

The city of Tempe is covered by a great bus service called “Orbit”. It is a set of 6 blue buses named after planets that connects all parts of the city. The Valley Metro takes residents out of Tempe, to the neighboring cities like Chandler, Peoria etc. These buses can be accessed via the various bus stops around Tempe by purchasing a ticket at the transit center. You can track all routes and timings of these buses

By Kimberly Rapanut and Polytechnic campus is 85212. In order to receive the packages safely and accurately, these codes are very important to put at the end of the address.

Groceries and Meals

Adjusting to a new environment as an international student is a struggle. It’s even harder when we are homesick and craving home cooked meals. Luckily, there are quite a number of options around campus. There are international food markets, shops and restaurants that can help satisfy the need for a good authentic meal within a few miles of each campus. Visit TasteofASU.com for restaurants and local markets to visit based on cuisine.

Moving Toolkit

College Budgeting Outline First time moving out? Just got a new job? Here are some tips for money management! Total Monthly Income:

How much do you earn in one month? This is key for the end of the budget, so calculate it now! Rent: How much can you afford? Make sure this is about 30% of your income or less. Average apartment rent in Tempe, AZ, with no roommates: High End: $2,250/mo (Luxury, Two-Bedroom) Low End: $819/mo (No amenities, Two-Bedroom) (Source: movers.com) Low End (shared): $352/mo (No amenities, TwoBedroom, two residents per room)

Renters Insurance:

This is good to have in case of an emergency. The app “Lemonade Insurance” offers low-cost renters, condo, and homeowners insurance for anyone within Arizona. Lemonade takes a flat fee and treats the rest of the money as yours, not ours. They use it to pay claims, and give what is left to charities you choose.

Public Transportation Costs:

The Valley Metro system offers a light rail system and busses that travel all around Tempe. The public transportation system is affordable with a one- day pass priced at $4 and a monthly ticket totaling $64. There is also free transportation offered by Neighborhood Circulators as well as FLASH buses surrounding ASU.

Car Costs:

Insurance: Average cost of U.S. car insurance is $92. This may be higher depending on age, claims, car type, and other factors (Source: Policygenius. com). Gas: Average price in Arizona per gallon as of February 2020 was 2.77 (Source: Gasprices.com) Maintenance: Estimated at $600/yr, $50 recommended to set aside per month for emergencies. (Source: birchwoodcredit.com)

Utilities: (water, gas, electric, wifi, etc.)

Utilities are not always included in your monthly rent, make sure to ask your landlord or read your lease for which utilities and fees are covered and which ones you are responsible for. Average utilities cost in Tempe, AZ is listed at $101.20 as of 2019 (Source: Bestplaces.net). Average price of basic wifi is $60/mo (Source: costof.live).

Food:

This includes groceries and eating out. ASU estimates that an off campus student living in the Phoenix Metro Area will spend $3,152 a year on food.

School:

Amount you are responsible for paying in tuition, books, fees, and supplies. Undergraduate costs and fees of ASU Arizona resident tuition is $10,710, while out-of-state costs $28,800. Graduate costs and fees of ASU Arizona resident tuition is $11,720, while out-of-state costs $23,544. ASU estimates that students will spend about $1000 a year on books and about $300 on supplies.

Other:

This includes other bills + total of extras that are important to you (Gym, Coffee, Netflix, etc.).

Savings (optional, but recommended):

Consider your financial position and consider putting a recommended 20% of your monthly income in savings, or the amount left over every month.

Total Monthly Income - Total Monthly Expenses = Positive or Negative Budget If total income minus total expenses is not a negative number, you can move out! Bonus points if you have a bit left over to put in your savings.

Transportation MINNEAPOLIS — I sold my car. And I have no plans to buy another one. It was a hard decision — and something of a radical one in Minnesota, where cars are a staple. In fact, it took me many months to ease out of my Subaru Impreza and to prove to myself that I really didn’t need it. Now, two months after selling my car and nearly a year since I stopped driving it, I no longer worry about traffic or parking, my wallet is thankful, I’m in better shape and I feel much more connected to my adopted city. So, how do I get around? My primary modes of transportation are buses (in the winter) and bicycling (in the summer), interspersed with a lot of walking. But I credit two tools for getting me to take the plunge: car sharing and my smartphone. For a long time, I held onto my car because I wondered “What if?” What if I have to make a large purchase at Target or pick up a lot of groceries? What if I need to get somewhere quickly? With expanding options from Hourcar, Zipcar, Car2Go and taxi-like services such as Lyft and UberX, I’ve discovered I can find a ride whenever I need one — as long as I have my phone with me. The other night as I left work, for example, I checked Minneapolis Metro Transit’s mobile site for the arrival time of the next bus traveling down Nicollet Avenue. Within minutes, I hopped the bus from downtown to a friend’s improv show on 37th Street. Later that evening, after dinner at a nearby restaurant, I checked the same site and learned that there wasn’t another bus for an hour. Instead of waiting, I opened another app and found that a Car2Go ride-share vehicle was just around the corner. I drove home, locked the car and left it on the street for the next Car2Go user to find. The ride cost me less than $6 — a marginal cost after subtracting the expense of maintaining a vehicle. I had never owned a car — nor driven one for very long — before arriving in Minneapolis four years ago. In both Washington, D.C., where I had been working, and New York City, where I grew up, owning a car isn’t the norm, in part because

both cities have expansive transit systems. Knowing I’d need to have a car in Minnesota, I hired a driving instructor in Washington to help me brush up on my technique. I drove at night for the very first time when I peeled out of the dealership lot in White Bear Lake, Minn., in my used car. For a while, I was hooked on the novelty of driving. After about two years, though, I started to question my car logic. The winter only seemed longer as I scraped off my windshield, lonelier when I was sitting alone in traffic. It was worse during the precious warm months in Minneapolis: I yearned to be outside. Owning a car seemed limiting, and not worth the money. “I think we’re tied to our cars so that people refuse to go to certain parts of the city because

Surviving & Thriving Without a Car By Kimberly Rapanut they don’t want to park, they don’t want to pay for parking or they have to leave somewhere early because their car is parked in a certain spot,” said Bill Lindeke, the carless host of the transportation-focused streets.mn podcast. “And in a way, the car sort of owns the person, instead of the other way around.” I have no children, I live along a bus line in Uptown and work downtown, about 4 miles away. My company has a few vehicles for workrelated trips during the day. Yet I was still one of 61 percent of Minneapolis residents driving to work solo. Last spring, I bought a bike and started riding to work. Come fall, I got serious about understanding the bus system. Late this past winter, I took the Subaru to a carwash, took some photos of my car, then sold it on Craigslist.

Ride sharing

For grocery runs and trips to the suburbs, I have access to a Zipcar near my house, which must be returned to the location it was taken from. (Locally owned Hourcar has a similar model.) For short trips, I use Car2Go. Of course, it made little sense to pay $9-$10 an hour (or about 46 cents a minute in the case of Car2Go) to rent a car when I was already paying more than $300 a month for loan payments, insurance, gas and parking for my own vehicle. Subtract my vehicle, however, and the occasional cost of car sharing has quickly become negligible. On average, I make only two or three Car2Go trips per month, but the peace of mind of knowing the services exist is enough for me to rely on the bus system during the colder months.

Becoming a biker

The Minneapolis bike infrastructure has grown rapidly, but I’ll be the first to admit that becoming a bike commuter was a bit intimidating. It took time to determine what kind of bike to purchase, locate the best routes and learn the etiquette. (Raising your left hand to signal a right turn was a bit baffling at first.) I’d never been that into biking, so each ride was a lesson. Google Maps bike directions were often my best guide. And only recently did I discover the wisdom of attaching saddle bags to transport groceries or hold a spare jacket. Bike commuting requires more thought about the weather than driving does, though I can take the bus or use a bus bike rack in the event of rain — something New York City doesn’t have. Parking is plentiful and traffic — apart from stoplights — is nonexistent, especially on the side roads I frequent.

Getting on board

Busing was also somewhat complicated at first. I first had to purchase a GoTo card, Metro Transit’s bus pass, at a local grocery store. Hopping on the No. 6 outside my house to get downtown for work was easy, but what if I want to go to some obscure address outside of my normal route? Bus stops in Minneapolis provide

woefully little information about where buses go. For a new user, it’s enough to keep you in your car. “The transit system works reasonably well if you’re going to go downtown, or to one of the downtowns,” said professor David Levinson, a transportation expert at the University of Minnesota. “There’s relatively fewer crossconnections. So if you’re not going to downtown, but you want to go from Point A to Point B, Car2Go might very well be faster.” Are there hiccups with taking the bus? Sure. Is it colder waiting for the bus? Yes. But it was a lot warmer after I bought a better coat, wore long underwear and wrapped my head in a scarf. Taking the bus helped me discover something rare in the Twin Cities: a public environment where strangers occasionally talk to each other. Bus interactions aren’t always pleasant, particularly when alcohol is involved, but observing and encountering a variety of people on a daily basis is one of the things that makes city life so interesting.

Not for everyone

Going carless isn’t for everyone, of course. I happen to live along a transit corridor and not far from where I work. Many people have long commutes to and from the suburbs and rely on their cars to get their children to the soccer game and the orthodontist. “Kids plus no car seems like a Triple Lindy level of difficulty,” one Twitter follower told me when I asked about managing without a car. Not everyone has the mobility to ride a bike, and the bus system isn’t convenient if you work in a location that’s off the beaten track. “A lot of it just depends on how you arrange your life,” said Levinson, whose five-member family owns one car. But for some urban families, the growing number of transportation options may mean the ability to get rid of a car — or even two. They just might find — as I did — the many intangible benefits to becoming car-free.

Life on the light rail A guide to the Valley Metro light rail By Jonah Hersch

What has the light rail offered me?

Choosing an apartment community that was close to public transportation was important to me, that’s why I chose to live at Tempe Station. Living at Tempe Station I am able to take the light rail virtually anywhere that I want to go, even though I have a car I still prefer to use the light rail. Aside from the benefits to saving money on gas, reducing pollution, and less wear and tear on your car, to me the light rail offers an easier alternative than driving. When I am going to work or school I can use that time to read or do some extra studying. Additionally, if I want to go out on the weekends I can do so safely knowing that I can enjoy my night and not have to worry about any drunk drivers that may be on the road.

What is the U-Pass?

The U-Pass is a transit pass offered by Valley Metro and Parking & Transit Services at ASU. It is an alternative to paying for a parking pass and dealing with tight parking spaces, and valid on any public transportation offered by Valley Metro, including: the light rail and bus systems, LINK, RAPID and Express bus systems. The U-Pass can be up to half the cost of a traditional parking pass, and offer a greener mode of transportation while saving money on gas and parking.

What can the light rail do for you?

There are many great places that are accessible by light rail throughout the Phoenix area, and there are extensions planned to extend that reach. There are many exciting sporting venues that can be reached by the light rail including the basketball and baseball stadiums in downtown, as well as what ASU has to offer.

For those students who travel home for the holidays, Sky Harbor Airport is a short ride on the light rail from Tempe. Some other places that are right on the light rail include the Mesa Arts Center via the new extension into Mesa, the Phoenix Marquee Theatre, Mill Ave, Downtown Phoenix and Mesa, as well as the Tempe Improv theatre. Places such as the Phoenix Zoo and Botanical Gardens offer great student discounts and are just a short light rail and bus ride from Tempe, both offer a great escape for students feeling overwhelmed or looking for a relaxing break. Valley Metro also has extensions planned to enhance Phoenix’s public transit system. For example, starting in 2017 development will begin on the Tempe Streetcar, a light rail type system that will add a transit line from Terrace and Apache Blvd. to Marina Heights on Rio Salado Parkway, the route will split and travel up Mill and Ash Ave from Apache to Rio Salado. This will allow students to get much closer to the southern and east side of campus via this route, instead of walking from the existing station on Rural and University.

Safety tips while riding the light rail:

•Travel with at least a couple friends at night. •Be aware of your surroundings (i.e. safety call buttons, emergency exits, anything out of the normal etc.) •If you are feeling worried, ride in the front car closer to the driver’s cabin for comfort. •Stay in well-lit areas at the light rail stations. •Always keep at least one ear bud out so you can hear important announcements. •Be kind and courteous to your fellow passengers.

Tempe Housing Code Requirements Why a Rental Housing Code?: Degree of Consanguinity

While most property owners, landlords and property management companies do their best to maintain rental units in safe and healthy conditions, others may neglect needed repairs on their properties. Exterior conditions such as peeling paint, curling roof shingles and dead landscaping may have a negative effect on surrounding property values and breed apathy in a neighborhood. Interior conditions such as adequate cooling and heating, proper plumbing, and correct electrical connections are all necessary to secure the well-being and safety of the tenant. The City of Tempe’s Rental Housing Code was adopted in January 1998 to ensure that rental housing units, both single and multi-family units, remain free of deteriorated and slum-like conditions. The code was not designed to settle landlord-tenant disputes. This information is intended to provide a summary of Tempe’s Rental Housing Code requirements. For specific information or a complete copy of the Rental Housing Code, please contact Code Compliance at 480-350- 4311 or visit www.tempe.gov/code/. The City of Tempe regulates the number of people that can legally occupy a property. In single family dwellings, more than three (3) people that are not related can not live together as a household.

Zoning & Development Code definition:

Family means: 1. One (1) or more persons related by the 3rd degree of consanguinity, adoption, marriage or as domestic partners as defined in Section 7-105, and not more than two (2) additional persons living together in a dwelling unit; or 2. Not more than three (3) persons who are not related by the 3rd degree of consanguinity, adoption, marriage or as domestic partners, living together in a dwelling unit. For more information please contact the Code Compliance office at 480-350-4311.

Safety and Security

For the purpose of safety and security, each and every rental unit within the City is required to meet the following minimum conditions: • Smoke Detectors are required in each unit and must be in working condition at all times. • Locking devices are required for exterior swinging or sliding doors, and on all windows that are designed to be opened and are accessible from the outside.

• Every principal entrance door must have an eye viewer or adjacent window, which allows a view of the area directly in front of the door. • In complexes of more than four units, public stairwells, parking lots, exterior entrances and postal box areas must meet specific lighting requirements for safety purposes. Call for specific information on these requirements.

Sanitary Facilities

Every rental housing unit must have sanitary facilities adequate for personal cleanliness, properly installed and maintained, including: Flush toilets, lavatory basins, bathtubs or showers, hot water service of at least 110 degrees, water-seal traps and a reasonable flow of water (not less than one gallon-per-minute).

Kitchen Areas

A kitchen sink, oven, stove, and refrigerator are all required and must be in sound condition. A reasonable flow of water and water-seal traps are required. Countertops, pantries and cupboards shall be free from holes, breaks or cracks and the surface must be easily cleanable.

Electrical, Lighting and Thermal Environment

Every habitable room shall have two outlets and either a permanent light fixture or a third outlet controlled by a wall switch. Permanent light fixtures are required in each laundry room, bathroom and kitchen. Permanently installed heating facilities, able to provide a temperature of at least 70 degrees, and cooling devices, able to provide adequate cooling (dependant upon the unit type) are required. No oven, stove, range or unvented combustion heater may be used for the purpose of heating a unit.

Doors, Windows, and Ventilation

Specific requirements for doors, windows and ventilation are enumerated in the Rental Housing Code. As a summary, each unit is required to have weather- tight exterior doors and windows that provide adequate light and ventilation. Any unit cooled by an evaporative cooler, which is not equipped with upducts, shall have at least one open able exterior opening that is screened. All screens must be in good condition, free from holes, tears or other imperfections. For more information, questions or to register a complaint, please contact: Code Compliance Phone: 480-350-4311 www.tempe. gov/code/
