The University of Akron will be your home away from home for the next few years, and we want you to get the most out of it. The best way is to become part of our on-campus community as a resident student. Our award-winning residence halls will provide you with a safe, comfortable learning environment, where you will meet new friends and take advantage of the residence halls' extensive programming calendar. There's always something to do!
We also offer an array of dining options. Whatever your tastes, we can satisfy it. Our wonderful food is offered in a variety of settings: from the ultra modern Rob's Café, to the unique Trackside Grille at Quaker Square, to the bustling Union Market in the Student Union. We think you will feel right at home!
Our residence halls, home to more than 3,000 students, are among the best in Ohio. For students, you will find that residence hall life enriches your learning and social opportunities.
Safety is always a priority. We have a highly trained staff in each of the residence halls on duty around the clock to help ensure student safety and well-being. All doors to our residence halls are secured at all hours, and card access is required to enter.
We believe you will be pleasantly surprised by the quality of food and the variety of restaurants and cafes available on campus. Our menu and meal plans are designed to be flexible. Whether you are a vegetarian or not, whether you live on campus or off, whether you eat lightly throughout the day or stick to the traditional breakfast, lunch, dinner routine — we can meet your needs.
Our staff is highly trained to provide you with excellent service and a variety of nutritious meals throughout the day. And you will find that in many instances, we can make your food to-order — just the way you like it.
