The editorially independent student voice at The University of Akron since 1889.


Founded in 1889, The Buchtelite is a student-operated newspaper and website that publishes a print edition on Tuesdays and Thursdays during the fall and spring semesters. Issues are available at 25 locations on campus. The student newspaper receives no money from The University of Akron, relying on advertising sales to support its operations. The University provides rent-free office space in the Student Union on the lower level, Room 51. Our main office phone number is 330-972-7919.

The Buchtelite cherishes its editorial independence and strives to be accurate and fair in its reporting. Should we fall short of that goal, we will correct our mistakes. Please bring factual errors to the attention of the Editor-in-Chief at 330-972-6184 and advertising errors to the attention of the Business Manager at 330-972-5912.
