Live Inspired

Cincinnati's campus is designed to energize and encourage. Students are surrounded by unique architecture, have access to cutting edge technology, and enjoy ample green-space – more than most urban campuses. Located less than two miles from downtown Cincinnati, the campus extends beyond the classroom giving students a big-city adventure with small-town charm.

Experience Is Calling

100% of University of Cincinnati students learn by doing. Experience-based learning through Cooperative Education (Co-op), internships, research, study abroad, clinicals, service learning, and more is part of the culture. Students are given the support they need but are also empowered to take ownership of their education and tailor their experience to meet their goals.

Make an Impact

Students don't just leave their mark on campus! Beyond the classroom, our students go on to do extraordinary work in their respective fields. 93% of students are employed or are engaged in post graduate activities such as graduate school, military, or Peace Corps within six months of graduation. Students come to us with the drive to succeed, we simply give them to tools to excel.
