National Undergraduate Bioethics Conference at Case Western Reserve University April 8 - 10, 2016


Where is CWRU located?

We’re glad you asked! Case Western Reserve is located in Cleveland, Ohio, just 5 miles east of downtown. We’re situated in the heart of University Circle, one of the city’s most energetic and culturally robust communities.

Cleveland often is hailed in the press as a hot new dining city, and it’s long been renowned for its arts scenes in neighborhoods such as Tremont, Ohio City and Collinwood. From African-American theater at Karamu House and indie concerts at the Beachland Ballroom to Friday-night polka-rock in Gordon Square and Saturday-morning shopping at the West Side Market, opportunities abound for busy life. Plus, you’re also just a short bus ride from Playhouse Square, the country’s largest performing arts center outside of New York City.

Want to cheer on a team in the stands rather than catch a show? You’re in luck. The Cleveland Cavaliers basketball team, Cleveland Brownsfootball team and Cleveland Indians baseball team all play in venues downtown. And each year during commencement, graduates and their families can see the Cleveland Marathon racing through the city.

There’s plenty to explore in Cleveland. Schedule your visit to see what it’s all about.

University Circle

Just minutes away from downtown, University Circle comprises 550 park-like acres in a vibrant urban environment. From our campus, you’re just a short walk to some of Cleveland and University Circle’s most outstanding destinations:

Students can cross-register at the Cleveland Institute of Art and the Cleveland Institute of Music, whose buildings are among the university’s north campus. Meanwhile, dozens of the country’s best medical centers — Cleveland Clinic, MetroHealth and University Hospitals of Cleveland—call the area home.


And that’s just the start. Cleveland’s Little Italy bustles just off campus and leads to various food, shopping and nightlife spots—Coventry, Shaker Square and Cedar-Lee, to name a few—in the nearby Cleveland Heights and Shaker Heights communities.

The Venue

Tinkham Veale University Center

The Tinkham Veale University Center is the newest addition to the campus of Case Western Reserve University. Opened in August 2014, the 82,000-square-foot facility is distinguishable on two levels — physically for iconic architecture and philosophically for campus unification.

The Tink is the new heart of campus. It’s the first time CWRU has had a large-scale, purpose-built hub; one that captures the spirit of its branding anthem – “think beyond the possible.”
