Richmond, Kentucky

The majority of our classes are held in Richmond, Kentucky at the EKU Perkins Conference Center.  The Center is only minutes from Interstate 75 at Exit 87.  Several nationally-recognized hotels are conveniently located within a short distance of the Center.  The nearest airport is  Lexington Bluegrass Airport (LEX), which is approximately 45 minutes away.  Our physical address is 4440 Kit Carson Dr. Richmond, KY 40475 (there are some GPS devices that do not recognize this address).

Parking is available in the adjacent Perkins Building Lot. Please disregard signage stating a permit is required; parking is free and the Perkins Lot is a General Parking area. Please contact us if you should have questions and we look forward to having you in class.

Driving Directions:

Take I-75 to exit #87 (Richmond/EKU Exit) At the end of the exit ramp, turn left (if exiting while travelling South) or turn right (if exiting while traveling North) onto the EKU By-Pass. Travel east along the EKU By-Pass to Kit Carson Drive. Kit Carson Drive is approximately 1.50 miles from the interstate and is located at traffic light #7. At the intersection of Kit Carson Drive and the Eastern By-Pass, you will see the EKU football stadium on your left and a fire station on your right. Turn right towards the fire station and go .40 miles. The Perkins Conference Center is connected to the Hummel Planetarium and will be on your right. EKU parking permits are not required for the Perkins Conference Center parking lot. Do not park across the street as those lots are ticketed. For additional travel information, you may call 859-622-2961. Please do not try to locate the building using GPS as the 521 Lancaster Avenue is not a physical address. Please also note that the campus is tobacco-free.
