A class taking place at the Cleveland Botanical Garden.

Case Western Reserve University is a thriving research university in the heart of a bustling city—and when you consider the company we keep, our penchant for the arts and humanities becomes quite clear.

CWRU is located in Cleveland’s University Circle, the most culturally dense square mile in America. Entwined with our campus are some of the area’s most prized institutions, renowned as some of the best in the nation. They are places you'll pass every day en route to class (and many of our classes even take place in these locations). 

Among them:

  • Cleveland Botanical Garden
  • Cleveland Institute of Art
  • Cleveland Institute of Music
  • Cleveland Museum of Art
  • Cleveland Museum of Natural History
  • Museum of Contemporary Art Cleveland
  • Severance Hall (home of the Cleveland Orchestra) 

Everyday access to these institutions, their experts and their resources adds an extra edge to Case Western Reserve students’ liberal arts education—and extraordinary opportunities for internships, research and more.
