Classified Ads

PLEASE NOTE: Only University of Akron students who register with a email address are able to place a free online classified ad. A note that pops up after the Post Classified button is clicked erroneously indicates that faculty and staff may also place a free ad. That note is part of the classified advertising host’s page template and cannot be changed to reflect The Buchtelite’s policy limiting free ads to students.
