How does one keep cool during the summer months without air conditioner?

How does one keep cool during the summer months without air conditioner? I live in a brick apartment on the third floor with no AC. We have a ‘cooling system’ but it rarely cools our apartment. Last year the apartment was rarely less than 90 degrees. Living in Arizona weather can rise to 150 degrees. My apartment is a 450 sq ft studio with a sliding door. There are no small windows that I can set up an AC. So what are my options to make this space livable this summer?
