About the University


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
