We Call it Home.

Our home is an enormous part of our identity at the University of Cincinnati. As Bearcats, we live and learn on a campus that's internationally distinguished in terms of its stunning architecture and design. Our urban campus is interwoven into a thriving city full of career opportunities, cultural diversity and memorable experiences. More than anything though, it is our people that make it home. 



Our Campus

We love talking about our inspiring campus, but don't only take our word for it. Forbes Magazine says UC is among the world's most beautiful campuses. Schedule a visit, and we think you'll agree with the New York Times that UC has the "most ambitious campus-­design program in the country."

Our built environment and our buildings may be internationally known, particularly those designed by some of the world's top architects. The real beauty of the campus, however, extends well beyond impressive buildings with big-name designers.

The diverse academic settings, the cutting edge labs, the open green spaces and pavered pathways all have been designed intentionally to both arouse intellectual curiosity and prompt a healthy social culture. People thrive on our campus because it is a place where they can learn, problem-solve, collaborate with one another or simply have meaningful and memorable college experiences.




Our City

Whether you are looking for professional opportunities, creative inspiration or just a great place to make memories with friends, you are in for something special in Cincinnati. It is a city in the midst of an exciting urban revival and a place known for its love of the arts, passion for sports and for its seriously impressive local food.

As the center of culture and commerce for a region of more than 2 million people, the Queen City is an important hub of the Midwest. The area is home to nine Fortune 500 companies and lays claim to one of the most vibrant startup ecosystems in the nation. People here experience big-city amenities — professional sports teams, major museums, pristine parks and cultural attractions — while enjoying a small-town friendliness and a collaborative vibe.

Our city is diverse, our heritage is largely German and our landscape is covered by hills — many of which offer a beautiful view of the scenic Ohio River. In recent years, Cincinnati has experienced an impressive renaissance of its urban core —from The Banks entertainment district and the downtown business corridor to the trendy Over-the-Rhine and Uptown neighborhoods near campus. 




Our People

The University of Cincinnati is made up of a large and diverse community where tens of thousands of students, faculty and staff from all across the globe come together each day to learn and live with one another. This is a premier academic institution and a public research powerhouse, yet it is the people who make it so.

We have more than 44,000 undergraduate and graduate students across multiple campuses, and our faculty and staff are here to empower them to challenge and change the world.

Experiential learning drives us here. From co-ops nearby to service learning overseas, we tend to learn by doing, and our students and faculty tote that real-world knowledge back onto campus where it informs our classrooms. It's absolutely part of who we are.
