All of our residence halls work to provide communities where student learning is enhanced by programming opportunities. Residence Life & Housing has worked with colleagues across the campus to develop unique opportunities that have even greater potential to increase student success.
There are three types of living learning environments available to meet these specialized needs:
Living-Learning Communities (LLC) provide the opportunity to become part of a unique experience with programs and facilities to advance the interests of the community members. Each LLC is connected with a specific academic unit or department that provides support to the residents in these communities and direction for developmental activities. Current Living-Learning Communities include:
Please contact Trina Nocerino, Complex Coordinator at Nocerino@udel.edu or (302) 831-7079.
Please contact Cheri Skipworth, Complex Coordinator at firstname.lastname@example.org or (302) 831-4311.
Special Interest Housing Communities – Designed by YOU - are developed by students who live and work with like-minded students of various disciplines and interests. Students, along with an advisor, develop a learning environment that supports both their interests and academics. Groups of 8 or more students can apply to live together based on a shared topic of interest in academic majors, organization involvement, cultural groups, fraternity and sorority life, sports clubs, etc. All approved groups will be provided with a small budget from Residence Life & Housing for programming.
To apply for the Designed by You option in Ray Street, be sure to complete a supplemental application.
You must submit the Preference Form to specify which Theme Housing Option is your first choice -- if applying for more than one -- and also to indicate what type of housing you wish to be considered for if you are unable to receive a Theme Housing assignment.
Except for Upperclass Honors Housing, all students who submit applications for Theme Housing Options are assigned manually. Return requests, number of Fall and Spring semesters on campus, and other criteria are considered in making Theme Housing assignments. Please read the information for complete details about your particular assignment process.
If you are unable to be assigned to a Theme Housing Option, you will be switched to the type of housing you indicate at the end of the Preference Form. If you have applied for more than one Theme Housing Option and are not assigned to your first choice, your other Theme Housing applications will be considered before assigning you to any other process.
IMPORTANT: A completed Housing Application, Preference Form, Theme Housing Supplemental Application, (except Honors) and $200 deposit must be submitted by the application deadline for a student to be considered as a Theme Housing candidate.
