Housing & Cost Information


Graduate students live off campus in apartments, rooms in private homes and single-family houses that several students rent together. Many students live within walking or biking distance from the campus. Most international students live in the charming Little Italy neighborhood, just a 10 minute walk from campus, with many eateries, boutiques and galleries. Others live up the hill in Cleveland Heights in the Cedar/Fairmount or Coventry neighborhoods. A recent survey of current law students revealed that the average cost of a shared apartment is $500 per month. Your housing budget at Case Western Reserve will be much less than at a law school in other more expensive cities. RTA buses run from University Circle to these neighborhoods via Mayfield and Cedar Roads.

Character & Location

Case Western Reserve was founded in 1826 and our history is as long and storied as our name. What began as two separate institutions - Case Institute of Technology and Western Reserve College both federated in 1967 to form Case Western Reserve University - then immediately became one of the country's leading research institutions.

With an endowment of more than $1.87 billion, Case Western Reserve supports about 100 designated academic and research centers, and receives over $408 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 all 3,695 faculty members hold doctorate or appropriate terminal degrees. They are researchers. They are teachers. They are leaders in their fields. In fact, Case Western Reserve counts 16 Nobel laureates (including the first American scientist to receive the prize) among our current and former faculty and alumni. Over 11,000 students – over 45 percent undergraduate - are enrolled at the university, representing all 50 states and 82 countries.
