Spring Housing Application

Applying for Housing for Spring 2014





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.


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.



If you are applying for housing for spring semester only, the Academic Year Student Housing and Dining Agreements are binding, and students are financially responsible for the residence hall space and dining plan for the remainder of the academic year.

All students assigned to upperclass residence halls will be charged the published rate for the assigned hall type and room type. All upperclass students are required to pay the full amount for their assigned space whether or not it is the type of space requested on their Housing Application. Students who move from one hall or room type to a different hall or room type will be charged the published rate for the new space from the effective date of move-in.

Residence Life & Housing oversees housing policies. Students must abide by all policies; policies are designed to protect the rights of all students and to encourage responsibility in each community. To read the policies in detail, view the Student Housing Agreement.


Relax. We've got it covered.

The residence halls offer students a variety of amenities at no additional cost. UD provides convenient services so you can focus on what matters most to you.

Upperclass students live in the Christiana Towers ApartmentsIndependence Complex and Ray Street on the Laird Campus; Harter, Sharp, Brown, and Sypherd on The Green in North Central; Warner, Squire, Cannon, New Castle, Kent, and Sussex on The Green in South Central.

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).


Application, Selection & Assignment


January 15, 2014

Beginning January 15, students selecting Spring 2014 housing will be able to log in to continue the housing application.

You, the student, will:

  • Verify your personal details
  • Sign the Student Housing Agreement (if under 18, a parent or guardian will need to sign the agreement)
  • Make a housing prepayment (if not already complete)
  • Complete a profile questionnaire
  • Let us know your room preferences

You, the student, can:

  • Apply to an optional housing opportunity.
  • Indicate a preferred roommate. Roommate requests are not guaranteed for spring.




Students will be assigned a time slot to log in and select a room. You will receive an email with your assigned time slot and instructions.

If you requested a specific roommate and we are able to fulfill your request, or if you applied to and were accepted into an Optional Housing Opportunity, you will be assigned by Residence Life & Housing and will not receive a time slot.


When your time slot becomes available, you can log in once again and select a room. Availability is limited for spring, based on current occupancy.

Building: Select your preferred building.

Floor: Floors with available spaces will be shown, with the number of spaces available on that floor shown by room type (single, double, triple). So, if you would prefer a double room, you should select a floor with at least one available space in a double. You may select more than one floor.

Rooms: You will be shown a list of available rooms and how many spaces in each room are available. You can view the profile information of any current occupants. If you are happy with the selected room, you can book it. If you would prefer to try again, you can back out as far as selecting another building.

Once you select a room, you have five minutes to assign yourself to a space in that room. If you do not assign within five minutes, you will need to start over from the beginning and may lose the space you had selected.
