Events at University Edge

There’s always something exciting going on at University Edge. Our team strives to make University Edge Akron more than all-inclusive Akron student housing, by hosting fun and memorable events for our student residents. These events are a great way to bond with your roommates, meet new people, oh and did we mention free food?

We know the semester sometimes can get stressful between papers, exams, internships, and assignments. With our University Edge events, we aim to have a fun, stress-free environment for our residents to enjoy their semester.

  • Banana Splits – Another tasty way our team to said thank you for choosing us as your Akron student housing.

Theses events are just a glimpse of what is to come while living at University Edge apartments!

Past Events at our Akron Student Housing

Our team loves hosting events in our University of Akron student housing lobby and courtyard. Some of the events we’ve hosted in the past include:

  • Courtyard Cook Out – What better way to celebrate the end of a semester than with a summer cook out? Besides free food, our cookout featured a DJ and games in the courtyard of our Akron student housing!
  • Resident Appreciation Week – At University Edge we do love our residents! While we try and show our appreciation all year long, we have a special week dedicated to surprising our residents with fun events in our lobby.
  • Hot Cocoa Bar – It gets cold in Akron, Ohio and when it does we feature a hot cocoa bar in our student housing lobby with all the fixings. A sweet way for us to thank our residents during the colder weather.
  • Football Game Cookout – Some of our residents are on the Akron Zips Football Team. Occasionally, we show up to the games and have a booth with free food. Wearing our blue and gold, of course!
