Case Western Reserve University, est. 1826: Think Beyond the Possible

One of the nation's top universities

Case Western Reserve, a leader among independent research universities, offers world-class academic programs in Cleveland's culturally vibrant University Circle.

University Life

Case Western Reserve University is all about community — be it students, faculty, staff, alumni, donors or friends. From varsity athletics to world-class museums, accessibility resources to prestigious events, life at one of America's best colleges fosters a level of learning, exploration and discovery comparable to none. Have a look around.

  • Making a difference in other lives can make a bigger one in yours. Get involved.

  • World-class museums and cultural institutions are steps away. Explore University Circle.

  • Our students are the best and bright. On and off the field. Cheer for the home team.

  • Case Western Reserve wants all voices to be heard. Learn about diversity.

Getting involved in university life at Case Western Reserve is the best way for undergraduates, graduate and professional students, faculty, staff and alumni to integrate themselves into the fabric of our diverse community.
Opportunities abound for cultural, academic, social and athletic activities on this campus. If you're not attending a lecture or exhibition put on by one of the university's schools or departments, catching a lunchtime grill at Crawford Hall or cheering on one of our winning sports teams, you still have worlds to explore within walking distance (or a short bus ride away). University Circle surrounds campus with the world's best in arts, music and history, while neighborhoods all over Cleveland offer a robust menu of cultural fare.
But university life at Case Western Reserve is more than just taking it all in. We like to give back too.
Campuswide events, like Case for Community Day, enable our faculty, staff, students and alumni to connect with our neighbors while demonstrating the synergy between higher education and service to society. Meanwhile university groups, like the Center for Civic Engagement and Learning keeps the spirit (and service) of difference-making alive all year long.
When we finally do go inside, Case Western Reserve students, faculty and staff have access to a top university library network, some of the highest-tech classrooms, enviable athletic facilities and university housing that's setting new standards as much for undergraduate living as sustainability.
