Campus District

Containing two institutions of higher learning, Cleveland State University and Cuyahoga Community College (Tri-C), the Campus District bustles with youthful energy. In addition to the more than 25,000 students who attend classes here, there are an additional 20,000 people who work in the district. Toss in the hundreds of other businesses, institutions and places of worship that call the area home and you get a dense 500-acre district that attracts over 100,000 people every single week. The newly completed Euclid Corridor Project makes travel east or west a speedy breeze. Located just east of Playhouse Square, this region of the city is fast becoming a prized live-work hub.
