below is an aerial view from East to West, our location is on the lower left, UCI is in the center and above is Newport Beach and beyond to Catalina Island

just 2 minutes to the 405 at University Drive and 4 miles to SNA airport (44 to LAX and 55 to UCLA/Westwood), 3 miles to the Spectrum, 5 miles up Newport Coast Drive to  Pacific Coast Highway and Crystal Cove, left on PCH and 4 miles south is Laguna Beach, right on PCH and 1/2 mile is Corona Del Mar.

This Flickr photo is taken from a window seat of a jet landing at SNA, our location is on the hill approx four miles beyond the top of the high rise with the white lettering in the center of the photo

And this is a photo taken from a window seat of a jet taking off from SNA, our location is on the hill to the extreme left of this field of view just below the far ridgeline. The  UCI campus occupies the entire distant mid-ground from left to  right.  That's the 73 Freeway on the  right, the 73 Toll Road climbs up the San Joaquin Hills in the right center background with  Newport Coast and Spy Glass Hill Newport Beach on the right.

Here's the link to go live on Google Maps for a satellite view  at the intersection of Ridgeline Drive and Turtle Rock Drive 92603
