A Virtual Tour - The University of Akron

West Quad


Students can "sleep in a silo" at one of the signature structures of The University of Akron and the City of Akron at the new Quaker Square Residence Hall. Since 1975, the silos of the one-time Quaker Oats building have housed a luxury hotel. In 2008, the University purchased Quaker Square, and the silos became one of the most distinctive residence halls in the nation.

Students who live in Quaker Square can eat at:

  • Trackside Grill
  • Einstein Bros. Bagels
  • Zee's Convenience Store
  • The Pie Factory
  • Schumacher's restaurant
