Our Campus

Welcome to the Neighborhood

At the Cleveland Institute of Art, you will find a creative setting dedicated to turning your artistic vision for creative expression into reality. Located less than five miles from downtown Cleveland, CIA is in the heart of Cleveland’s cultural district, University Circle, which was recently named by Forbes Magazine as one of the most beautiful neighborhoods in the country. 

Our campus offers the experience of a true artists’ community, one that combines the pace and energy of city living with the creative inspiration of a close-knit campus environment. We share a campus with Case Western Reserve University and the Cleveland Institute of Music, which gives our students an opportunity to experience an active college environment of more than 8,000 students.
