The Partners Program provides admission to our career fairs with enhanced visibility at these events and presence building opportunities throughout the academic year.
In-Person Career Fairs
We're pleased to welcome employers to Case Western Reserve University for in-person career fairs, information sessions and events. As you plan your visit to CWRU, take time to review information about parking and shipping.
The primary parking garage for career fairs is Severance Hall, Lot 29 on the parking map, located at 11172 East Blvd, Cleveland, Ohio 44106. We will have student volunteers outside to escort you with your materials to your designated tables.
If space is unavailable in the Severance Hall parking garage, you may park in Lots S-53, 44, 47, or 5 on the parking map.
Registration includes a parking voucher for each employer representative and will be given to you when you check in. The vouchers will be accepted by all parking garages and lots listed above. Only present the vouchers at the designated locations in order to guarantee validation. The vouchers will be collected by the attendant before exiting the parking garage.
Arrangements have been made to receive employer materials on campus ahead of the fair. All materials must arrive before noon two business days prior to the fair. Items that arrive by this time will be delivered to your table at the event. Late items will not be delivered to the venue so please send them with time to spare. Clearly mark all packages with your organization's name and the number of packages sent (1 of x boxes). Please note, our office is unable to confirm the receipt of your package, so please keep your tracking information.
Send packages to:
Cedar Avenue Service Center

Employers are responsible for providing their own return shipping labels and making the necessary arrangements for pick up. Parcels cannot be picked up at Tinkham Veale University Center.
We recommend FedEx, conveniently located at the CWRU Thwing Center (11111 Euclid Ave.), next door to the event space.
