Add the University calendar to Outlook 2007

Please note the following instructions were created on Outlook 2007 in Windows XP professional.  If you are using a different platform, operating system or calendar you may need to use a slightly different process to subscribe.

  1. With Microsoft Outlook 2007 open, go to the Tools menu.
    • Scroll down the "Tools" menu and click on Account Settings...
  2. With the "Account Settings" windows open, you should see seven tabs.  By default the window will automatically be on "E-mail." Click on the tab labeled Internet Calendars.

  3. In the "Internet Calendars" tab you will notice the three tools labeled "New," "Change," and "Remove." Click New.

  4. A window titled "New Internet Calendar Subscription" will pop up. You will be prompted to add the location of the Internet Calendar you wish to add. Copy and paste this into the Location box:
    • Academic Calendar: http://www.google.com/calendar/ical/akronevents@gmail.com/public/basic.ics
    • Financial Aid Calendar: http://www.google.com/calendar/ical/ajulnnhbhpmme1sqlj55rob3b0@group.calendar.google.com/public/basic.ics
    • Click Add.
  5. A window will come up giving you options to configure the Internet Calendar. Folder Name: Academic Calendar.
    • Click "OK"
  6. "Academic Calendar" should now appear in the "Internet Calendars" tab in the "Account Settings" window.  If it appears, you have successfully added the University Academic Calendar. Click "Close."

If you are unable to see the Academic Calendar immediately, make sure you are in the Calendar function in Outlook. On the left hand side of your screen under "All Calendar Items," you should see the University calendar under the category "Other Calendars." Make sure the box next to Academic Calendar is checked. The new calendar will usually display next to your current calendar by default. If you do not like viewing the calendars side by side, go to the "View" menu and click "View in Overlay Mode."
