Students transitioning from the University's Associate in Arts program to the Newark campus are unique. AA students apply to live on campus like returning students, but we know that you are new to the process.
When you live in the residence halls, you become part of a community rich in history and tradition. 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.
If you apply for 2015-2016 UD Housing during the Open Enrollment Period, February 1-28, 2015, you will be able to utilize the self-select feature, which works like selecting an airline or concert seat. Be prepared to act when your time slot opens in order to get your preferred option.
After you complete the 2015-2016 housing application during the Open Enrollment period, you will receive an email later in the Spring telling you when your time slot will be.
Housing for 2015-2016 is guaranteed for returning students who complete an application by May 31, 2015. Students who apply between March 1 and May 31 can still select their own room, but spaces may be limited.
Be sure to review the Student Housing Contract for 2015-2016. Remember, the Student Housing Contract is a financially binding contract, similar to signing an off-campus lease and you will sign this electronically as part of the Housing Application Process.
The entire process is detailed in the Returning Student Sign Up Guide.
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.
Associate in Arts students are eligible to apply for the Bridge Experience, a Living Learning Community in Independence East designed to support your needs.
Just like all resident students, you can also participate in leadership and learning opportunities like the Student Initiative Fund, Service Initiatives and Complex Community Council. These are great ways to not only get engaged, but to enhance the skills and experience needed in life after college.

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.
