'Contactless' ONEcard

The UD ID card will be replaced by the ONEcard, which incorporates a chip and features a new technology initiative called "contactless," meaning the card can be placed near a reader device rather than swiped.

HealthyU in 2015

The HealthyU Employee Wellness program provides resources for University of Delaware faculty and staff to address their fitness-related resolutions in the New Year.

Even though the message appears to come from University IT staff, the email is a phishing scam designed to get you to click a link to harvest your personal information. 

If you hover your computer’s mouse over the link that allegedly goes to UD’s Webmail service, you’ll see that the link would really take you to a suspect site.
