The address for the Kent State Trumbull Campus is 4314 Mahoning Avenue NW, so the motel is just down the street.


From I-80 West (The Ohio Turnpike):  Exit at Gate 14/209 then go East on Route 5.  Follow Route 5 for 7 miles to the third exit.  This is Mahoning Ave.  Exit at Mahoning and turn right.  Drive 2.5 miles, and the hotel is on the right side of the road.

From I-76 West:  Follow I-76 East to Exit 38B.  Take exit 38B, and this will be Route 5 East and Route 44 North.  These two roads run together for a short while before they spilt.  When they split, follow Route 5 East.  Once you pass Exit 14 of the Ohio Turnpike, start counting exits off Route 5.  You will be looking for the third exit past the Ohio Turnpike; this is Mahoning Ave.  Exit at Mahoning Ave. and turn right (South).  Drive for 2.5 miles, and the hotel is on the right.

The Trumbull Campus is located by the Mahoning Ave. and Route 5/82 Bypass (approx. 3 miles North from the Best Western).

Turn on to the Campus Drive at the traffic light by the McDonalds.  From the entrance continue straight into the faculty/staff parking lot.  [Do not follow the drive around to the left].

You may park in the faculty/staff lot without fear of being ticketed.  Enter into the Classroom / Administration Building at the entrance marked "High Tech Wing".  The Niagara/Midwest SEM meeting will utilize the music classroom, the Auditorium/Lecture Hall, and the Student Union -- all located in this building.
