MAKE UD YOUR HOME FOR 2015-16

When you live in the residence halls, you become part of a community rich in history and tradition. Whether you are living in one of our historic buildings or one of our newest halls, you will have one important thing in common with everyone in our residential community: excellence.

Students who choose to live on campus have higher GPAs, feel more supported, and are more connected to the University.  Resident students learn essential skills that will serve them in their careers and more broadly in life.

CONNECT

On-campus residents always have something to do and someone to meet. Whether you're hanging out in the common rooms or participating in activies and events, you'll connect with other students in the residence halls on a daily basis.

HOUSING ACCOMMODATIONS

At the University of Delaware, there are various housing options to accommodate dietary, medical, and physical needs for students. We understand that there are circumstances where particular requests and accommodations need to be considered.

To accurately and equitably evaluate requests for housing based upon medical, psychological, or disability needs, you will submit documentation of your need, consisting of an evaluation by an appropriate professional that relates the current impact of your condition to your housing request. Requests for returning students for Academic Year 2015-2016 are due by March 4. Documentation received late may result in an assignment that does not match your needs.

For complete details on housing requests involving needs, please refer to the Housing Accommodations webpage, or contact Residence Life & Housing at (302) 831-HOME (4663).
