University Dr/Rural, also known as ASU Tempe Campus or simply University for the school and street, is a station on the Metro light rail line in Tempe, Arizona, United States. The station is not actually at the intersection of its named streets, sitting some distance south of University Drive, with the platforms running northwest from Rural Road along the former alignment of the Phoenix and Eastern Railroad.[1]

The station features "The Spirit of Inquiry," a monumental spherical sculpture by Seattle artists Bill Will and Norie Sato.[2]
