Directions & Parking: Ashford’s Kearny Mesa location is just west of I-163, between exits Balboa (south) and Clairemont Mesa Boulevard (north). From either exit, take Kearny Villa Road to Spectrum Center Blvd, heading east. Once on Spectrum Center Blvd, you’ll see the large 11-story Ashford University building on the north side of the road. Drive past the building and turn left at the first light, Sunroad Centrum Ln. Next, turn right at the entrance to the large parking lot. Ask the parking attendants for directions to visitor parking spaces as well as the main entrance to the building. A librarian will greet attendees in the lobby, where all will be required to sign in at the security desk and procure a visitor badge.
Light refreshments will be served for your enjoyment!
