Parents: Welcome to The University of Akron!
Welcome! This is an exciting time to have a son or daughter at UA, largely because of:
- outstanding faculty and academic programs,
- the 300 academic programs that we offer, and
- our revitalized campus, which includes a new Student Union, rec center, stadium and residence halls.
Our students participate in over 250 recognized clubs and student organizations, focused on academics, the arts, athletics, science, music, leadership, service and more.
We are committed to making the transition to college easy for you and your student. We have a number of services available to help students adjust to college life and succeed academically.
We hope that you, as well as your son or daughter, will enjoy being members of the Akron family.

We invite our UA parents and family members to join us for our inaugural Parents & Family Winter Weekend. Share the Akron Experiences as you spend time connecting with your student and experiencing what makes being a Zip so special. Parents & Family Winter Weekend is the perfect opportunity to spend time with your student, meet his or her new friends, and learn more about the resources available on campus.
We hope you can join us and many other families at Winter Weekend. Online registration, as well as more information and a schedule of events will be available in the new year, and announced in the PFA Newsletter.
