Winter Session Housing

How do I register for Winter Session 2015 classes?

Registration begins on Monday, Oct. 27. Students will register online as they do for fall semester and spring semester. If students have any difficulty, staff members will be available to assist them at the Registrar’s Office on the first floor or the University Visitors Center. Each student has been assigned a Registration appointment - the day and time at which they may individually begin to register. They can view their appointment on their personal UDSIS web page.

Students may continue to register and drop/add through UDSIS or in person through the end of the free drop/add period. The last day to add/drop courses will be Jan. 8, the fourth day of winter classes. Jan. 8 also marks the last day to drop classes without any financial obligation.

Do I have to live in a residence hall during Winter Session?

No. All students who are living in traditional residence halls or suites for fall or spring semester and are registered for at least one Winter Session course on the Newark Campus will be presumed to be living on campus. If you fit the above criteria but do not plan to live on campus during Winter Session, you must indicate so by completing the Winter Session Housing Occupancy Form.

Note: Students living in Graduate Student and Family Housing (Conover Apartments or Graduate House) don't need to fill out the Winter Session Housing Occupancy Form. See below for more specifics to Graduate Students and Family Housing.

Is the Winter Meal Plan mandatory?

All students living in traditional residence halls or suites during Winter Session are required to purchase a full dining plan. If you do not select a plan, one will automatically be chosen and billed to you.

Students living in the Christiana Towers Apartments, Graduate Student and Family Housing (Conover Apartments or Graduate House) or off-campus may choose to sign up for any of the available dining plans, but are not required to do so.

For more information about choosing a dining plan, visit Dining Services.

Is there a housing fee for students who live in residence halls during Winter Session, but not during fall or spring semester?

Yes, students living in a residence hall ONLY during Winter Session will be charged a fee.

Those who live in Graduate Student and Family Housing (Conover Apartments or Graduate House) will also be charged.

If I am not enrolled in a class during Winter Session, can I still live on campus?

Resident students not enrolled in a Winter Session course may request to live in the residence halls if they have a University-related reason to be on campus (such as University employment, research, etc.)

Students living in Christiana Towers and Graduate Student and Family Housing (Conover Apartments or Graduate House) do not need to register for a course to remain in their current residence during Winter Session.

Can I live on campus for just the Winter Session?

Yes, but only if you are an Associate in Arts student on another campus and will be taking a Newark campus class during winter session. There is an additional $500 housing fee and a special housing application that is due by December 5. All others must either have lived on-campus either during the fall semester or have an application on file with a signed Housing Contract for the Spring semester.

What if I've requested a mid-year room change, but plan to live on campus during Winter Session?

Full information about room change procedures, including information on how to handle mid-year room changes is available on our Room Change page.

Will any unused Points from the Winter Meal Plan carry over into Spring semester?

For students who are mandated to enroll in the Winter Meal Plan, all Points from that plan will expire at the end of Winter Session. Students may purchase additional Points for any current dining plan via the Dining website, at Value Transfer Stations or at Cashiers. Call 302-831-4033 or email Dining Services with questions.

For students who purchase a Point plan other than the Winter Meal Plan or purchase additional Points for an active plan, unused Points will carry over to the spring semester. All Point plans will expire at the end of spring semester.

Can Points from the Winter Meal Plan be used at dining halls?

The dining halls will not be open during Winter Session. Points from the Winter Meal Plan can be used at all open venues across campus including the Trabant University Center Food Court, the Scrounge and Dunkin Donuts in Perkins Student Center, Einstein Bros. Bagels in ISE Lab the P.O.D. markets and more. Several of these venues will be expanding their offerings and hours during Winter Session. A complete listing of Winter Session hours and additional information on choosing a dining plan will be available on the UD Dining website.

Is there a housing fee for students living in graduate and family housing (Conover Apartments or Graduate House) during Winter Session?

Students living in graduate or family housing (Conover Apartments or Graduate House) during Winter Session pay their normal monthly rate, but no increment related to whether or not they enroll in Winter Session.

Can students living off campus, in graduate or family housing or in the Christiana Towers sign up for the Winter Meal Plan?

Students living in Christiana Towers, graduate and family housing (Conover Apartments or Graduate House) or off campus may choose any of the Point plans offered; but they are not required to. If you have unused Points from the previous semester, they will be available for use during the Winter Session.

Failure to do so may result in being assigned and billed a mandatory dining plan.

Can I use Student Health Services?

Students living on campus pay a health fee and are free to fully make use of Student Heath Services.

Students not enrolled in Winter Session may visit Student Health Service and pay a fee-for-service. Learn more about Student Health Service Fees and Charges.
