A guide to current campus construction

New Medical Education Building
A joint venture between Case Western Reserve University and the Cleveland Clinic, the new medical education center will be located on the Clinic’s campus on East 93rd Street. The new center will combine the university’s broader scope with the Clinic’s more hands-on approach, and will focus on defining the future of the medical field. Construction is still in the planning stages, with no official starting date.

The Tinkham Veale University Center
The Tinkham Veale University Center is currently on schedule and on budget, and is set to be finished in May. The building will be open to students starting in August. Students can look forward to new dining areas, an immersive media wall and new offices for campus groups.

The Milton and Tamar Maltz Performing Arts Center
The Milton and Tamar Maltz Performing Arts Center will provide more performance and rehearsal space for music, dance and theater groups. A renovation of The Temple-Tifereth Israel, built in 1924, the center will still serve as a temple on High Holy Days and other special events. The drawings are 70 percent completed, and construction is set to begin by this summer.

Think[box] lab expansion
Many students are familiar with the Think[box] lab, but they may not realize that it isn’t fully finished. The 4,500 square foot space where Think[box] currently resides is only temporary, and soon will be moving into its permanent location in the old Lincoln Storage building, which is located behind Veale. There will be one or two floors dedicated to Think[box], with a bridge connecting the building to Veale.

The Wyant Athletic and Wellness Center
The Wyant Athletic and Wellness Center will provide gym access for students on the north side of campus, without the added mile-long walk to Veale. The 24,000 square foot center will also serve as a field house for varsity athletic teams, while providing multipurpose space and meeting rooms for intramural and club sports. Construction is already underway, and the building is set to open in October of 2014.
