Living in Delaware
Living costs in the vicinity of the University are lower than in neighboring large cities along the east coast. Many graduate students reduce costs further by sharing rented apartments and houses. On-campus dormitory accommodation and apartments are available on a limited basis with preference given to first-year graduate students, especially those coming from abroad. Very early application is advised for these on-campus units, and interested applicants should contact the Office of Housing and Residence Life, University of Delaware, Newark, Delaware, 19716 or to the International Student Advisor. Food costs in the area are moderate, due in part to the proximity of the agricultural areas of the Delmarva peninsula. Delaware has no sales or food tax.
For additional information concerning housing, both on and off-campus , refer to the University web page at: http://www.udel.edu/has/
