Subscribing to a Calendar

Did you know you can subscribe to any office/departmental Carleton event calendar? It's easy to do!

Desktop calendar software (Outlook, Apple iCal) and Mobile Device calendars (iPhone, iPad, Android)

  1. Go to the calendar in question
  2. Find the link "Subscribe to this calendar" at the bottom of the page.
  3. Click (or tap) the link. Your desktop calendar software should launch and add the Carleton event calendar to its subscriptions.

Web-based calendar software (Google Calendar)

  1. Go to the calendar in question.
  2. Find the link "Download Events" at the bottom of the page.
  3. Right-click on the link (or control-click, if you have a one-button Mac) to bring up a menu.
  4. Copy the link:
    • Firefox: "Copy Link Location"
    • Safari: "Copy Link"
    • Internet Explorer: "Copy Shortcut"
    • Chrome and Opera: "Copy Link Address"
  5. Go to your calendar program and add a subscription using the link you just copied. This option is called different things in different calendar tools. Here's how to do it in Google Calendar:
    1. At the bottom of the left-hand calendar list, look for "Other Calendars" and click on the small down-arrow next to it.
    2. Choose "Add by URL"

    4. Click "Add Calendar." The calendar will be added to the "Other Calendars" section.
    5. You can change the title, turn on/off viewing, and change the color of that calendar through the small down-arrow next to it.
