PHOENIX — An education technology services company is set to unveil its new East Valley headquarters.

Zovio will open its 130,000-square-foot facility near the Loop 202 Santan Freeway and Cooper Road in Chandler at 9:15 a.m. on Wednesday, according to a press release.

The company will also host an open house and ribbon-cutting ceremony to commemorate the facility’s beginnings.

The two-story facility at the Chandler Airport Center features an open-area work environment and space for more than 800 employees.

Amenities of the new headquarters include an on-site gym, health clinic and a cafe with a patio.

Chandler Mayor Kevin Hartke and Arizona Chamber of Commerce and Industry President and CEO Glenn Hamer are among the community leaders who are expected to attend the opening.

Zovio, formerly known as Bridgepoint Education, operates online Ashford University in San Diego, California, but plans to spin off Ashford into a separate nonprofit institution.

There has been a staff of 200 working out of a temporary office in Tempe. The group is first in line to set up at the Chandler site. The rest of the staff will make the move in waves over the next two years.
