Established in 1826, Case Western Reserve is one of the country's leading private research institutions. Nestled within Cleveland, Ohio’s culturally rich University Circle neighborhood and within walking distance of three major hospital systems, the campus provides exceptional opportunities for collaboration within and beyond its boundaries.
Opened in 2019, the Health Education Campus of Case Western Reserve University and Cleveland Clinic exemplifies that spirit, with students from our schools of nursing, dental medicine, and medicine (including the Cleveland Clinic Lerner College of Medicine) all learning, studying and dining together in the 477,000-square-foot Samson Pavilion.
Next year, the university will celebrate completion of Phase II of the Maltz Performing Arts Center, a renovation and expansion project that gives students in our dance, music and theater departments state-of-the-art spaces to hone and showcase their talents.
Our interdisciplinary efforts extend well beyond buildings. There’s the Cleveland Humanities Festival, with more than 30 partners across the region; the Case Comprehensive Cancer Center, with 400 member investigators; and multiple joint efforts across the region, state, country and world.
Case Western Reserve is home to seven schools and a college, providing our students with well-rounded, high-quality educational and experiential learning opportunities in a variety of areas:
- College of Arts and Sciences
- School of Dental Medicine
- Case School of Engineering
- School of Law
- Weatherhead School of Management
- School of Medicine
- Frances Payne Bolton School of Nursing
- Jack, Joseph and Morton Mandel School of Applied Social Sciences
Our Home in Cleveland
Just minutes from downtown Cleveland, Case Western Reserve is at the heart of University Circle, an exciting neighborhood that’s home to more than 50 arts, cultural, medical and education institutions within a single square mile.
We’re within a cultural mecca. For example:
- Cleveland Museum of Art, one of the nation’s best museums, is next door, and a joint partnership gives our art history students access to see and experience esteemed art collections.
- Severance Hall, home to the world-renowned Cleveland Orchestra, sits at the heart of campus (and our students can get free admission to concerts).
- Museum of Contemporary Art–Cleveland is located in the heart of Uptown, overlooking the university’s open-air public space Toby’s Plaza.
- And a variety of other cultural institutions—such as Cleveland Museum of Natural History, Cleveland Botanical Garden, the Western Reserve Historical Society, and the university’s own Maltz Performing Arts Center and Dittrick Museum of Medical History—are just a few of the institutions that provide our students, faculty and staff with unparalleled opportunities.
