DIRECTIONS TO THE LEARNING AGENTS CENTER

The Learning Agents Center is on the 4th floor in the Nguyen Engineering building, which is near the Shenandoah Parking Deck (formerly Sandy Creek Parking Deck). When entering the Nguyen Engineering building as shown on the map below, the elevators are on the left. After exiting the elevators on the 4th floor, turn left and walk towards the atrium. Turn left again and walk along the atrium. The entrance to the Learning Agents Center is the second door on the left (4601).

The GPS Coordinates for the entrance to the Shenandoah Visitor Parking Deck are:

N 3849.782
W07718.235
Notice, however, that significant construction work has been done in the past years, and continues to be done around the Fairfax campus, resulting in permanent or temporary road closures. This has especially impacted the access to the Fairfax campus from the City of Fairfax. As a result, it is very likely that GPS maps are no longer accurate when planning routes from the north. Therefore we recommend to follow the driving directions provided below.
