UT - MUO Merger
The University of Toledo and the Medical University of Ohio merged July 1, 2006, to form the third-largest public university operating budget in the state.
House Bill 478 was signed on March 31, 2006, by Gov. Bob Taft, creating a university built around eleven academic colleges and professional programs matched only by a handful of public universities nationwide, including Ohio State University and the University of Michigan.
UT's main campus, located along the banks of the Ottawa River in a residential section of the city, includes historic buildings, modern facilities, contemporary residence halls and lots of green space.
The University of Toledo Health Science Campus is home to UT Medical Center hospitals and clinics and many of UT's health-science research and education programs that are teaching the next generation of physicians, nurses and other health care professionals.
