  Directions to Kent Campus

Located in Kent, Ohio, the Kent Campus is ideally situated in northeastern Ohio, amid rolling terrain dotted by spring-fed lakes. Kent, a city of some 30,000, rests on the banks of the Cuyahoga River in Portage County. Yet, "big city" enthusiasts are only a short drive from four major urban centers - 11 miles east of Akron, 33 miles southeast of Cleveland, 40 miles west of Youngstown and 28 miles north of Canton, with airports offering access to the nation and the world. Kent State University is easily accessible from all directions via major interstate highways; Ohio, Pennsylvania, and Indiana turnpikes; Cleveland Hopkins Airport; and Akron-Canton Airport
