The Cleveland Institute of Music is located in the heart of University Circle, adjacent to the Case Western Reserve University campus.

CIM is walking distance from Severance Hall, home to The Cleveland Orchestra, The Cleveland Museum of Art, Cleveland Botanical Garden, Cleveland Museum of Natural History, Western Reserve Historical Society, Case Western Reserve University and the Cleveland Institute of Art. A variety of restaurants and coffee shops are also within this walkable community.

Parking at CIM
CIM's parking lot will be inaccessible due to construction until July, 2020. There are a wide variety of nearby parking options, including metered and unmetered street parking on Hazel Drive, Juniper Road and Magnolia Drive, and paid lots at neighboring institutions. Additionally, visitors and concert patrons can access CircleLink Shuttles and RTA options for free or low-cost transportation in and around University Circle.
Note that metered parking is closely monitored; please follow posted signs about meter rules. Do not park at any meter enclosed by construction fencing, as cars will be ticketed or towed from those areas.
