200 YEARS OF IMPACT, and the University of Cincinnati continues to add to its remarkable story:
The incoming first-year class, nearly 8,000 strong, represents the largest incoming class in UC history. Of these, 18.6% are first-generation college students and 22.7% are students of color. They are also the first to be part of UC’s new Bearcat Promise, a pledge that all undergrads will graduate with a degree and a career plan.
Total enrollment, reaching over 46,388, hit a record for the seventh consecutive year.
International enrollment stayed strong at 3,500 students who come from 115 nations.

DESIGNED WITH PATIENT INPUT, UC’s new Gardner Neuroscience Institute opened in April 2019 to consolidate 15 neuroscience specialties into one collective neurological sciences hub. The $68 million UC Health facility provides 114,000 square feet of space for treatment, research and education led by more than 125 specialists. Designed by architects Perkins+Will to encourage patient comfort and joy, the institute’s new home features a distinctive structured mesh façade that controls light and heat while preventing glare and allowing natural daylight to enter the interior. World Architecture News has selected the building as a finalist in the healthcare category for its annual awards competition.
