University of Toledo

Begun as a private arts and trades school in 1872, The University of Toledo has grown into an exceptional educational institution that offers more than 250 undergraduate and graduate programs to its 21,000+ students.

After moving from downtown to its current Bancroft location, the university’s first buildings, University Hall and the Field House, were designed to reflect elements of Gothic European institutions. And buildings constructed since then have adhered to those designs, making the university a beauty to behold. But it wasn’t until 1967, when the University of Toledo became a state university, that the campus greatly enlarged and student populations grew.

The fourth largest university in Ohio, UT has eight colleges: Arts and Sciences, Business Administration, Education and Allied Professions, Law, Pharmacy, Engineering, Health and Human Services and University College. Its campus locations include the main campus on Bancroft St., the Scott Park campus and the Seagate campus in downtown Toledo. There are also university locations at the Toledo Museum of Art, the Stranahan Aboretum and the Lake Erie Research Center at Maumee Bay State Park.

The university joined OhioLINK, a statewide library network in 1994, and has been named one of America’s most wired colleges by Yahoo! Internet Life Magazine.

A member of the Mid-American Conference, UT’s athletic department offers men’s football, basketball, baseball, cross country, golf and tennis. Women’s athletic opportunities are offered in basketball, cross country, soccer, golf, softball, swimming
