Returning Students

   

MAKE UD YOUR HOME FOR 2014-15.

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 live on campus consistently earn higher grades and are more involved with the UD community.

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. 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).

TRADING SPACES, ROOM SWAP & ROOM CHANGE WAIT LIST

ROOM SWAP
ended April 30, 11:59 p.m.
As students are accepted into study abroad programs or become Resident Assistants during the spring semester, spaces become available for the following academic year. 

Room Swap will allow students the opportunity to find these newly opened spaces. 

Priority for Room Swap will work in the reverse order from Room Selection.  That is, students with the latest time slots for Room Selection will have the first time opportunity for Room Swap.  Current freshmen will be eligible to find spaces in a large variety of room types: doubles, triples, quads, double-room suites, and apartments.

Available spaces are based on the movement of individual students.  Therefore, there is no guarantee that entire groups will be able to move together. 

TRADING SPACES
April 7, 9 a.m. - May 31, 4:30 p.m.
Trading Spaces allows students to make mutual room changes. That is, no open space is being filled or left as a result of the swap.

ROOM CHANGE WAIT LIST
May 1, 9 a.m. - June 30, 11:59 p.m.
Students who prefer a specific area of campus or a specific room type can opt to be placed on a Room Change Wait List.

If a space becomes available we will contact you to discuss the space. Singles and completely open rooms, suites, or apartments are limited. You will join the wait list as an individual; therefore all roommates must join the wait list.
