Transfer students may begin to apply for on-campus housing on April 14 and will be guaranteed housing if applications are received by July 15, 2014. Students who apply for housing between July 16, 2014 and the start of year, will be accommodated as spaces become available.
Each year hundreds of students transfer to the University of Delaware. Many transfer students choose to live on campus for the convenience of access to campus resources, to participate in the multitude of programs and activities in our residential complexes and for the support of Residence Life & Housing staff members.
Living on campus will provide you with opportunities that living off campus cannot offer you.
You will join a diverse group of more than 7,000 undergraduates by living on campus at the University of Delaware. UD residence halls and on-campus apartments are places to connect to people, academics, and a wide array of activities.
Residence Life & Housing staff members work in each of the complexes to provide educational and social programs, leadership opportunities and keep students informed of upcoming campus activities and events to keep them engaged in the campus community.
Various on-campus living options are available to transfer students:
In order to assist you with your transition to the University of Delaware upper division community, we offer a Transfer Living Learning Community. In this supportive community approximately 80 spaces are reserved for incoming transfer students in the Ray Street complex.
This community affords students who just transferred an opportunity to quickly engage in the residential community and interact with other transfer students and non-transfers alike. Students living in this community have an advantage from the day they move in because not only will they quickly meet other students, they are part of a unique community which provides additional programming opportunities.
The Ray Street complex offers suite style living, large lounge spaces on each floor and a dedicated Residence Life & Housing staff to provide support and assistance to all students.
Another opportunity for transfer students to get involved quickly on campus is through the Transfer Student Association. This is a student run organization comprised of transfer students looking for ways to connect transfer students to one another, to the residential complex and to the campus community.
TSA provides a great opportunity for transfer students looking to get involved at the University of Delaware and enhance their college experience and leadership skills. Students are encouraged to join this organization when they first arrive on campus but all students are welcome at all points of the year.
For more information about this being a part of this organization, please contact Cheri Skipworth, advisor and Complex Coordinator of Central Complex.
