Starting today, students, parents, faculty and staff can sign up for the new Z-Alert service and receive emergency alerts on their cell phones or via e-mail or both. Alerts will be sent when campus closes or when a situation arises that affects safety.

Sign up instructions for parents only:

  1. Go to the ZipLine log-in page
  2. Click on the Z-Alert Text Messaging icon
  3. Follow the instructions from there

Sign up instructions for students, faculty and staff:

  1. Go to ZipLine and log in with your UANet ID and password
  2. Click on the Z-Alert Text Messaging icon
  3. Follow the instructions from there

The University is not charging for the Z-Alert service; however, recipients will pay text-messaging fees as prescribed in their service agreements. The University will use Z-Alert for emergency messages only. Recipients may unsubscribe at any time via ZipLine.

Even with Z-Alert, the University will continue to send emergency messages to students via Zipmail.

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.
