Directions to Berea College

Easily accessible, Berea is located about 40 miles south of Lexington, KY, just off Interstate 75. The driving time from Louisville, KY, Knoxville, TN, or Cincinnati, OH, is slightly more than two hours.

To reach the Office of Admissions

From Interstate 75, take Exit 76 and head east into the town of Berea. (If you are traveling northbound on Interstate 75, turn right off of the exit ramp. If you are traveling southbound on Interstate 75, turn left off of the exit ramp.)

Continue straight on this road (Chestnut Street) for approximately 2 miles. After stoplight #6, watch for the El Rio Grande Mexican Restaurant which will be on the right. Immediately past the Mexican restaurant will be a brick building (Oliver & Oliver Co) after which you will see a large brick Berea College sign. Immediately after the large sign, you will see two white houses with large front porches. Turn right into the driveway located between the two houses. The Admissions Department is located in the Haaga House which will be on your left after you turn into the driveway. Park in an available spot and enter through the front door of Haaga House. (If you reach stoplight #7 or Boone Tavern Hotel, you’ve gone too far.)
