Profile of Cleveland's Campus District

Cleveland's Campus District will host a large number of Gay Games 9 sports, including all Aquatics events (except Open Water Swim) and Basketball. Here's FreshWaterCleveland's take on the neighborhood:

Containing two institutions of higher learning, Cleveland State University and Cuyahoga Community College (Tri-C), the Campus District bustles with youthful energy. In addition to the more than 25,000 students who attend classes here, there are an additional 20,000 people who work in the district. Toss in the hundreds of other businesses, institutions and places of worship that call the area home and you get a dense 500-acre district that attracts over 100,000 people every single week. The newly completed Euclid Corridor Project makes travel east or west a speedy breeze.

Located just east of the PlayhouseSquare district, this region of the city is fast becoming a prized live-work hub. Teeming with creative types and the start-ups they establish, warehouses like the Artcraft Building and Tower Press have undergone recent transformations in both look and purpose. Sandwiched between downtown and AsiaTown, the region is close to some of the city's best dining, shopping and entertainment options. But why leave the area at all? Located within the Campus District borders are numerous restaurants, markets and even a YMCA.
