1819 Innovation Hub
In 1819, the University of Cincinnati was established opening it’s academic doors to the young state of Ohio.
Nearly 200 years later, that institution is poised to lead urban public universities into a new era of inclusion, innovation and impact. This new revolution begins here: at The University of Cincinnati 1819 Innovation Hub.
The completion of the 1819 Innovation Hub, the physical manifestation of the university’s innovation agenda, is a major milestone for UC’s Next Lives Here strategic direction. In addition to serving as the front door to the university, 1819 anchors the Uptown Innovation Corridor, which business and community leaders expect will attract industry, investment and collaboration.
The successful future of the 1819 Innovation Hub and the Uptown Innovation Corridor is assured. Not only is UC invested in its future, the U.S. National Institute for Occupational Safety and Health remains committed to the construction of a new $110 million facility nearby, bringing more than 500 jobs to the corridor. UC’s recently announced digital futures building will put even more student and faculty researchers near 1819.
1819 is a place of thinking, making and doing, of discovery and delivery, for the University and its community, for the city and the world beyond. It is the one-stop destination where industry meets the University’s talent. The University of Cincinnati is where next lives. The 1819 Innovation Hub is where next happens.
