    Working at The University of Toledo

    The University of Toledo is one of 13 state universities in Ohio. We were established in 1872 and became a member of the state university system in 1967. The University of Toledo and the Medical University of Ohio merged July 2006 to form the third-largest public university operating budget in the state.

    We offer more than 230 undergraduate, graduate and professional programs at colleges of:

    Some of our nationally ranked programs include business, engineering, law, and occupational therapy.

    We also offer:

    Main Campus features nine modern residence halls, a gothic bell tower, a Student Recreation Center, a state-of-the-art classroom center in one of our original buildings, Memorial Field House, opening fall 2008, and a football stadium and new Savage Hall basketball and athletic complex, set to open fall 2008.

    Health Science Campus is home to graduate health programs and the UT Medical Center, a Level 1 trauma center, offering innovative treatments for strokes and cancer found nowhere else in the state. The UT Medical Center, also features the new $5.8-million Orthopaedics Center.

    At UT, we have researchers working at all levels — from undergraduates to faculty — toward our mission of improving the human condition. In fact, their combined, efforts have led to 125 patents and nearly $60 million in funding and grants. Whether your interest is diabetes, performance management, bio-fuels, or Shakespeare, we welcome you to join us in research.

    We also are transforming the regional economy and the world through the UT Science and Technology Corridor, where research and innovation mean business.

    And our campuses are quite the happening (and fun) places to be — with 200 student organizationsart exhibitstheater performances, athletic games, and renowned speakers such as Robert F. Kennedy Jr.

    At UT, we are proud Rockets (our nickname), we love our gold and blue (our school colors), and we invite you to visit campus to experience it for yourself.
