The University of Cincinnati is often compared to a small town. Now it has what every small town should have: a MainStreet. Establishing a path through the community is a simple and time-honored concept. At UC this path stretches from University Pavilion, near the western edge of the main campus, through relatively-newly completed facilities including the Tangeman University Center, Steger Student Life Center, Bearcat Plaza, and the Campus Recreation Center, continuing into the open space of Sigma Sigma Commons and terminating at Jefferson Residence Complex on the east.

As a full-time Uptown campus student you enjoy a complete, automatic membership to the Campus Recreation Center. Some of its facilities include 6 basketball courts, hundreds of cardio machines, a “lazy river”/recreational pool, and much more. CRC is home to CenterCourt, which is one of two dining halls available on our campus. Also, students have the option of living in suite-style housing within the Campus Recreation Center.

The Steger Student Life Center is home to many organizations and campus resources, such as: Student Activities and Leadership Development, Student Life, Student Government, Office of Fraternity and Sorority Life, Wellness Center, and the Women’s Center (just to name a few!). You can also find a two-story Starbucks and a Subway restaurant.
