The university's College of Polymer Science and Polymer Engineering is housed in a 12-story reflective glass building near downtown Akron on the western edge of the main campus.
UA’s Archives of the History of American Psychology is an affiliate of the Smithsonian Institution.
Over the next several decades the university continued to add new buildings to accommodate its growing student population, acquiring more land through purchases and donations.
In 1963, Governor Jim Rhodes approved the university as a state-assisted institution. In 1967, it fully became a state university, providing its current name as The University of Akron.
On behalf of the entire Univeristy of Akron Zips Volleyball program, we would like to thank all of our campers for joining us throughout the entire summer to improve their skills and prepare for their upcoming seasons!
It is our hope that you were able to walk away from camp with improvements to your game.
The university has three branch campuses: Wayne College in Orrville, Ohio, the Medina County University Center, in Lafayette Township, Ohio, and UA Lakewood, in the Cleveland suburb of Lakewood, Ohio.
