The University of Akron is a vibrant community within metropolitan Akron, with more than 80 buildings on 218 acres.The institution now known as The University of Akron was founded as Buchtel College in 1870 by the Ohio Universalist Convention, which was strongly influenced by the efforts, energy and financial support of Akronites, particularly industrialist John R. Buchtel.By 1907, Buchtel College's emphasis on local rather than denominational interests led it to become a private, nondenominational school.
