Central Campus Projects

A - Campus Center Building & Landscape (In Planning)

The new Campus Center is envisioned as the physical and philosophical heart of the campus. The Campus Center will be sited at the intersection of three major axes of campus circulation, connecting the Case Quad, the North Residential Village, and the West Quad. A tower or other “high reader” element, visible from the Case Quad, the North Residential Village, and East Boulevard, will become a unifying visual element for our campus and all of University Circle. The Campus Center will be designed to invite and engage people from all constituencies and from the entire University Circle community. Both indoor and outdoor
spaces will be carefully planned to encourage social and intellectual interaction. Similarly, the building will physically engage and respond to its context, with significant façades addressing Euclid Avenue and East Boulevard, and with sensitivity to its remarkable “neighbors,” the Cleveland Museum of Art, the Kelvin Smith Library, the Peter B. Lewis Building, and Severance Hall.
