lifelong learning center
Welcome to Ohio's most spectacular square mile - University Circle! This premier urban district and world class center of education, medical, and arts & cultural institutions is located just four miles from downtown Cleveland along the historic and future looking Euclid Corridor.
Nowhere on our globe can you find the same concentration of education, health care, arts, cultural, religious, and social service institutions located in one city neighborhood.
When you Find Yourself in the Circle along our great main street, Euclid Avenue, you will find new visitor attractions as well as new residences, restaurants, and retailers opening their doors to you. Anchored by our hospitals and universities, University Circle is the fastest growing employment center in the Northeast Ohio region and our museum and cultural institutions - more than a dozen in all - are growing right alongside them. It's all happening here in University Circle. So take a ride along the new Euclid Corridor to the modern arts and cultural district emerging uptown at Euclid and Mayfield or find yourself in our Wade Park museum campus or along the historic side streets of Magnolia, Ford, Bellflower, and Juniper where 19th century mansions and carriage houses are restored as boutique hotels, lively restaurants, and hip coffee shops. Looking for fun activities for all ages? Wade Oval is University Circle's year-round outdoor venue with Parade the Circle every spring, live concerts and movie nights running throughout the summer season, autumn scarecrows, and The Rink at Wade Oval throughout the winter months. Whatever the time of year, or your interest, there is something for everyone.
