Transfer Student Housing Sign Up Guide


UPDATE: Housing will be guaranteed for the vast majority, if not all, newly admitted transfer students for the 2016–17 academic year. Transfer students will be primarily housed in our transfer community located in Smyth Hall. Priority will be based on housing application completion date.

For Fall 2016: Transfer students for Fall 2016 may complete the housing application beginning April 1.

After you log in to My Blue Hen Home and pay your $500 enrollment deposit, you will be granted access to the My Housing Portal within three business days to complete your housing application.

An additional $200 prepayment is not required for newly admitted students.

You, the student, will:

  • Verify your personal details
  • Sign the Student Housing Contract. If under 18, a parent or guardian will need to sign the contract.
  • Complete a lifestyle questionnaire






The Student Housing Contract will become legally binding 3 business days after submission of the application. This contract covers the entire 2016-2017 academic year (the “Contract Period”). 

All students assigned to upper-division residence halls will be charged the published rate for the selected/assigned hall type and room type.

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.


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.

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. 

You should complete the Housing Application and try to assign yourself to a room that meets your needs (i.e., look for a first floor room, or a building with air conditioning, etc).

Once we are notified by Disability Support Services that your request has been approved, we will review your assignment. If your self-selected space does not match your approved needs, we will reassign you to an appropriate space on campus.

Please note that any delay in request will delay reassignment. 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).
