Cleveland State University
Established as a state-assisted university in 1964, Cleveland State University assumed a tradition of excellence when it adopted the buildings, faculty, staff, and curriculum of the former Fenn College, a private institution of 2,500 students that was founded in 1929. Cleveland State University’s historical roots go back to the 19th century. During the 1880s, the Cleveland YMCA began to offer day and evening courses to students who did not otherwise have access to higher education. The YMCA program was reorganized in 1906 as the Association Institute, and this in turn was established as Fenn College in 1929. A significant contribution of Fenn College was its pioneering work in developing internships for students in engineering and business. These internships, as joint ventures between the college and local businesses and industries, provided students with professional contacts and experience as well as an affordable education. Historic Fenn Tower, now student housing, still stands as a reminder of the early years, when Fenn College was known as the "Campus in the Clouds."

The Cleveland-Marshall College of Law traces its origins to 1897 when the Cleveland Law School was founded. It was the first evening law school in the state and one of the first to admit women and minorities. Another evening law school, John Marshall School of Law, was founded in 1916. In 1946, the two schools merged to become the Cleveland-Marshall School of Law. Cleveland-Marshall became part of Cleveland State University in 1969.


Accomodation

On-Campus Housing
Students who choose to live in one of CSU's two on-campus residence halls (Fenn Tower or Euclid Commons) engage in their studies, meet new friends and immerse themselves in fun while living in an all-CSU environment. Students who are interested in living in the residence halls must apply as early as possible and cannot move in without a signed contract. Meal plan purchases are required for all on-campus residents.

Off-Campus Housing
Students who would rather not live in an on-campus residence hall but still want to enjoy the convenience of living in an exciting downtown, close to campus, can choose from modern to historic. There are numerous apartment complexes that can be found in the city and surrounding neighborhoods
