Facilities

The facilities at the Cleveland Institute of Art (CIA) provide you with space designed specifically for study, living, and exhibition—all add up to a creative, friendly environment for you to pursue your dream of attending a premier school of art and design. Visit our campus and see for yourself! 

Study Space

George Gund Building

About half of CIA's major studios are located in the George Gund Building as well as many academic and foundation classrooms. The building is also home to the excellent CIA Library, as well as the Reinberger Galleries, the largest private exhibit space in Cleveland, and the Cleveland Institute of Art Cinematheque, a premier alternative film theatre.

Joseph McCullough Center for the Visual Arts (JMC)

Originally a Ford Model T assembly plant, JMC has large windows on all sides and a 40-foot-long skylight. The building’s high ceilings, wide corridors, and freight elevator allow students to work as large as they choose. The JMC will be the future site of our modernized and unified campus—a visually distinctive facility that will help anchor the revitalized Uptown neighborhood within University Circle.

Cleveland Institute of Art Library

The CIA Library is located on the third floor of the Gund Building, and it has collections specifically developed for the visual artist, designer, and craftsperson. It is a great place to study, read, research, receive help, relax, or just hang out. Public access computers, printers, scanners, and photocopiers are available for use, and the library also houses a collection of artists’ books, the Institute’s archives, and extensive digital resources.

Living Space

Uptown Residence Hall

Opening in fall 2014, CIA’s Uptown Residence Hall is located on Euclid Avenue in the heart of the Uptown development in University Circle, just steps from campus. The residence hall is comprised of two-bedroom suites that house two students per bedroom, all furnished with a kitchenette, beds, dressers, wardrobes, drafting tables, and chairs. They also come equipped with cable television and wireless Internet. In addition, the hall has quiet study areas, three outdoor patios, a cardio lounge, a social lounge on each floor, and a laundry room. Learn more about housing at CIA.

Exhibition Space

Reinberger Galleries

CIA’s Reinberger Galleries annually host roughly 10 exhibitions of art and design. All exhibitions are free and open to the public, and many include lectures, films, or informal gallery talks. In addition to annual student, faculty, and scholastic exhibitions, recent shows have featured works by internationally known artists, such as Andy Warhol and Ansel Adams. See the upcoming exhibition schedule.

What do CIA students love about their Studio Space?

As one of the only art and design schools to assign studio space in a student’s sophomore year, CIA ensures personal studio space until graduation.

See what students love about their own space in this video or browse through our studio space gallery.
