How do I subscribe to the UIC Events calendar?

Anyone can subscribe to the Events Calendar. You can also add an individual event: in the Detailed View of each event, using links the Options section toward the bottom. There is a link that will add the Event directly your personal UICal Calendar. If you use a different personal calendar, you can use the Export this event in ical format link. When you click this, a file named eventinformation.ics will be created. There are a number of things you can do with this file:

You might be about to open it directly from the Web with your calendar program; this works on Macs with iCal and with Outlook, for example. If that doesn't work, you can import it into your calendar. As an example, here is how to add the eveninformation.ics file to your GoogleApps@UIC calendar.

  1. Open Google Calendar.
  2. Click the Add link in the bottom right corner of the Other Calendars box in the left sidebar.
  3. Select Import Calendar from the dropdown list.
  4. In the Add Other Calendar dialog:
    1. Click Browse and find the eventinformation.ics file you downloaded. Select the file.
    2. Choose the Calendar you want the event to be imported into. This is if you have more than one calendar.
    3. Click Import.
  5. Google Calendar will say whether the event was imported or not.
  6. Click Back to Calendar.
