About Case Western Reserve University

Case Western Reserve was originally founded in 1826. What began as two separate institutions — Case Institute of Technology and Western Reserve College which federated in 1967 to form Case Western Reserve University, and immediately became one of the country's leading research institutions.

With an endowment of more than $1.4 billion, Case Western Reserve supports about 100 designated academic and research centers, and receives nearly $400 million in external research awards each year. Our eight schools and college offer close to 200 top-ranked undergraduate, graduate and professional programs that range from arts, law and humanities to engineering and medicine.

Virtually about 2,600 faculty members hold doctorate or appropriate terminal degrees. They are researchers, teachers and also leaders in their fields. In fact, Case Western Reserve counts 15 Nobel laureates (including the first American scientist to receive the prize) among current and former faculty and alumni.

About 10,000 students with 40 per cent undergraduate are enrolled at the university, representing all 50 states and more than 100 countries. Case Western Reserve students are the best and the brightest in the nation, featuring Fulbright, Goldwater and National Science Foundation scholars (to name a few) who seek challenges within and beyond the classroom.

Outside those state-of-the-art classrooms, the unique urban campus bustles across 155 acres in University Circle, a vibrant cultural district just five miles east of downtown Cleveland, Ohio. A cornerstone institution, Case Western Reserve generates a $1 billion impact on the region's economy with innovative technologies, social services and cutting-edge research.

The service features a list of off-campus apartments and housing information for Case students, faculty, and staff. Case is not acting as a realtor, nor is it providing any of the services as a realtor for profit. We only provide the posting service and rental information.
