University Circle



Just a few miles East of downtown Cleveland is the University Circle neighborhood, which packs more culture, education and healthcare into one square mile than anywhere in the United States. Where else can you walk a mile and find two world-class health centers — University Hospitals and the Cleveland Clinic — and a major university, Case Western Reserve, art school and music conservatory?

That’s before you even get started on the vast array of museums, libraries, and cultural and religious organizations within walking distance, including the Cleveland Museum of Art and Severance Hall where the fames Cleveland Orchestra plays? Whether art, music, science or history is your thing, you’ll find it here.


The neighborhood is punctuated with parks and crisscrossed by greenways, giving respite and counterpoint to all the hustle and bustle of its institution, including the Cultural Gardens along MLK Drive, sponsored by and devoted to the various ethnic groups that are part of the city.

In addition, the Uptown development have brought new life to the area, bringing shopping, restaurants and nightspots to an area that was once fairly devoid of them, along with new housing and new residents of all ages.
