ZipLine will be unavailable from 6:45 to 7:45 a.m. Thursday, March 24, to allow technicians to install a redesigned front page for the site. The new login page will have more capabilities than the present page, plus it will have an improved look and feel. While ZipLine will receive a facelift, the changes are strictly cosmetic: You’ll find your favorite applications right where you left them.

ZipLine’s new login page will provide easier access to Admissions and course catalogues for guests, plus it will have links to the new ZipLine Help Center, which has FAQs, tutorials and information about new features.

Questions about ZipLine should be directed to the Help Desk at (330) 972-6888 or portal@uakron.edu.
