LIVING IN TOLEDO, OHIO
— A SAFE, AFFORDABLE CITY

The University of Toledo is located in Toledo, Ohio, on the western shore of Lake Erie. Nicknamed "The Glass City," Toledo has the cultural amenities of a big city and the close-knit feel of a small town. We're also located within hours of most major cities in the region.

Toledo offers nearly everything you could need within a 15-minute drive of campus with vibrant cultural opportunities, an outstanding park system, world-class zoo and art museum, and semi-professional hockey and baseball teams. Fifth Third Field, home of the Toledo Mud Hens baseball team, was even named the best minor league stadium by Newsweek.

Enjoy our affordable cost of living, short commutes, and diverse neighborhoods. UToledo’s campus is on the edge of Old Orchard and Ottawa Hills, two historic residential neighborhoods. Campus is easily walkable, and ample parking is available at the College of Law. We're also minutes away from downtown Toledo law firms, courts and government offices, as well as loft living in the Warehouse District.
