Edgecliff College

What is now the University of Cincinnati’s College of Applied Science once was Edgecliff College, a Catholic Women’s College founded by the Sisters of Mercy. Edgecliff started out as Our Lady of Cincinnati College in 1935 replacing the College of Sacred Heart in Clifton. In the 1970’s it became a coed school and in 1980 the college merged with Xavier University. In 1986 Xavier closed the campus and sold some of the land to a developer who built high-rise condos. The University of Cincinnati purchased the remaining buildings from the college. In honor of the college, Xavier University named their alumni hall Edgecliff Hall.
