Transitions Students

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.

Make UD your home for 2014-2015.

Students who applied for 2014-2015 housing February 11-28 during the Open Enrollment Period. A new self-select feature works like selecting an airline or concert seat, which means students will need to be prepared to act when their time slot opens in order to get their preferred option. 

Housing for 2014-2015 is guaranteed for returning students who complete an application by May 31, 2014. Students who apply between March 1 and May 31 can still select their own room, but spaces may be limited.

The process is detailed in the Returning Student Sign Up Guide

Students should review the new Student Housing Contract.


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.

Enhance your UD experience

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.
