Located near I-77 and I-480, close to downtown Cleveland and the Hopkins International Airport, IWU's Cleveland (Independence) Education and Conference Center holds classes on weeknights and Saturdays. This 40,000-square-foot facility also serves as a comfortable conference center for area businesses and organizations that want to reserve space for workshops, conferences, meetings and other activities.

If you're considering Cleveland event venues for your group meeting, training or other activity, this is not your typical sterile, cinder-block, tiled-floor college classroom building. Our first-class facility includes all the amenities of a modern commercial office building. Conference guests will find the classrooms, study areas, hallways, and break areas beautifully decorated, carpeted, and extremely comfortable and inviting for an afternoon workshop or week-long training session.

One Space for all of your Needs

The mostly curtainwall glass building has a 23' tall lobby that is open to the second floor balcony. There are 17 state-of-the-art classrooms, study rooms (suitable for 6-8 people each), an executive board room (for 10-12 people), a large conference room (accommodates up to 120 people seated theatre-style), a computer lab, lounge areas and a library.

All of the technology used in our facility, including teleconferencing and Internet service, is available for your group's convenience, along with access to onsite vending and area caterers.
