The Campus District is the home of Cleveland State University and the Metro Campus of Cuyahoga Community College in addition to high quality private and public elementary and high schools.


The past several years have seen explosive growth in investment by private developers and anchor institutions in housing in the Campus District. From lofts on Superior to student housing on Euclid to market rate apartments on Prospect, we have it all.


The Campus District has a great variety of restaurants, shops, galleries, art and sports events and green spaces that create a true neighborhood. From Indian to Middle Eastern, from burgers to mac and cheese, it's all here! CSU, Tri-C and Trinity Cathedral provide cultural events for the city and the Superior Arts District is the arts district for downtown Cleveland.


The Campus District is home to St. Vincent Charity Medical Center, Care Alliance Central Neighborhood Clinic and a large array of agencies that serve people's needs.
