Welcome to The University of Akron! We’re delighted you are here.

Your safety is our priority. We have a full-time police department on campus to serve you. But your safety can be enhanced greatly by making good decisions. Here are some points to keep in mind whether you are on campus, at the mall or anywhere else you go:
  • Travel with a friend, especially after dark. If you are on campus, our campus patrol will walk with you between points on campus from 5 p.m. to midnight any night during the fall or spring semesters. Call the campus patrol service at 330-972-7263. It’s free!

    We have more than 200 emergency phones available across campus and in our decks. Most of the phones are topped with blue lights. When you pick up the handset, you are talking immediately with our campus police department.

  • Keep your car and residence-hall rooms locked at all times, even if you step away for only a minute.

  • Don’t leave valuables in plain view. This includes textbooks on the seat of your car.
You will meet many people in the weeks ahead, and many will become friends for life. But as you go about, please be cautious: The first couple of weeks of school in particular can be an exciting time as you develop new relationships. But take it slowly. Don’t allow friends and new acquaintances to pressure you to engage in behaviors (i.e., sex, drugs, alcohol) that you feel are risky or that make you feel uncomfortable. You have the right to make healthy, informed choices based on your own values and feelings.

We want you to have a great time here. Make this year your most memorable one in part by making good decisions. Be safe, responsible and have fun!

Chief Paul Callahan
The University of Akron Police Department

PS: If we may ever help you, call us at 330-972-2911. (In fact, it may be a good idea to program that number into your cell phone.)

The University of Akron's Zipmail is a compilation of University announcements for University students, sent each Friday unless circumstances require otherwise. The deadline for submissions to be considered by the University is 5:00 p.m. on Wednesday.

Zipmail is a University of Akron communication vehicle established for the benefit of The University of Akron to communicate with its students. Items will be accepted for publication only when the University is directly involved in the activity through participation, sponsorship, or partnership with one of its recognized organizations, colleges or departments. The University reserves the right to edit or to refuse to run any submission for any reason. Zipmail is not, nor is it intended to be, a public forum or a limited public forum. Questions about the implementation of this policy may be directed to zipmail@uakron.edu.

Items to be considered for inclusion in Zipmail should be sent through the Zipmail Event Submission Form. Due to the volume of submissions received, items will not run more than one time.

Questions about specific announcements should be made to the contact person/department/organization listed in the announcement.Your event will automatically be forwarded to the University's online calendar. The Zipmail Coordinator can be reached at x2837.
