Connected to a City of Opportunities
- Our campus is situated in University Heights, Ohio, an attractive residential suburb 10 miles east of downtown Cleveland (metro. area pop. 2.05 million).

JCU connects students to world-class research and internship experience in biomedical experimentation, healthcare, IT, educational outreach, marketing, and autism research. We also have a special partnership with the renowned Cleveland Clinic.
- We coordinate opportunities for students to serve those in need. We partner with several organizations, including those that are actively addressing issues of food and hunger, early childhood development, education, and domestic violence prevention.
- Located on the shores of Lake Erie, Cleveland is the heart of a thriving metropolitan area. Home to the Cleveland Orchestra, the Cleveland Museum of Art, the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame and Museum, a number of theatre ensembles, including the Cleveland Play House and Great Lakes Shakspeare Festival, dance companies, and a thriving film scene, Cleveland is a cultural magnet. Its lively theatre district at Playhouse Square is the country’s largest performing arts complex outside of New York City. Cleveland is also a sports town, with Major League Baseball (The Cleveland Guardians), NFL Football (the Cleveland Browns), and NBA Basketball (the Cleveland Cavaliers).
- Cleveland has a large city park system in the U.S. and offers picnicking, hiking, bike trails, horseback riding, winter sports, and more. The Cuyahoga Valley National Park, located between Cleveland and Akron, features a wide variety of natural, cultural, and historical resources.
