Cleveland's Cultural Hub

The Cleveland Institute of Music is located in University Circle, adjacent to the Case Western Reserve University campus. University Circle, Northeast Ohio's cultural center, was named one of America's prettiest neighborhoods by Forbes Magazine. At the heart of University Circle is the Uptown District, recently called the "new downtown” by The New York Times; the area is home to dozens of restaurants, shops, live music venues and more. We are proud to be part of this amazing community focused on the arts, education and enrichment.

CIM is walking distance from Severance Hall, home to The Cleveland Orchestra. Our campus is also a quick walk to 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.
