Cleveland Clinic Moves Front Entrance To Prepare For Presidential Debate

The first 2020 presidential debate between President Donald Trump and challenger Joe Biden will be Sept. 29 on Case Western Reserve University and Cleveland Clinic’s shared Health Education Campus.

Clinic officials are changing the way the public can access the hospital and closing some parking garages starting Sept. 22 through Oct. 1, in preparation for the event which is expected to bring national attention to Cleveland.

“During this time, all services on Cleveland Clinic’s main campus will continue to be offered to patients,” officials said in a news release. 

Changes to Cleveland Clinic main campus entrances include: 

  • Cleveland Clinic’s main entrance will be temporarily moved from the Miller Pavilion (J Building) on Euclid Avenue to the Glickman Building (Q building) on East 96th Street, beginning Sept. 26.
  • The main entrance to our Children’s Outpatient Center (R Building) on Euclid Avenue will be temporarily moved to the entrance on East 90th Street.


  • The East 93rd Street (JJ, Parking 1) garage will close Sept. 26. The garage is expected to resume normal operations on Oct. 1.
  • The Parking 2 garage at Carnegie and East 100th Street will serve all patients and visitors coming to main campus during this time.

Changes to Health Education Campus:

  • Samson Pavilion will be closed for academic use from Sept. 26 – Sept. 30.

Clinic officials have also set up a website which will have the latest information on changes to entrances, parking and traffic patterns.

“We are continuing to work with the Commission on Presidential Debates to finalize logistics for the event that will impact access to both the Health Education Campus and Cleveland Clinic campus in the days leading up to the debate,” officials said in the news release.
