Housing Assignment Services has extended the deadline for campus housing applications to April 1.

Deadline for campus housing extended

University students can apply for 2013-14 on-campus housing by April 1


1:06 p.m., March 18, 2013--University of Delaware students are guaranteed housing for the coming academic year if they apply by announced deadlines each year. This year, Housing Assignment Services is extending the deadline to April 1.

“Living on campus lets students make the most of their college experience,” said Linda Carey, director of Housing Assignments Services. “Students who live on campus get more services and support and we want to extend the opportunity to as many students as possible.”

Optimizing Delaware courts

Over the past year, students and faculty from UD's Lerner College have helped the Delaware Judiciary to make a number of process and management improvements.

STEM for the holidays

Melissa Jurist, coordinator of K-12 education in the College of Engineering at the University of Delaware, offers suggestions to get kids excited about science, technology, engineering and math.

From the convenience of living close to classes, to amenities like fitness centers across campus, and no utility bills, UD officials note that living on campus is considered a great value. Utilities included in room rates are outstanding, and students have access to one of the fastest Internet and widest Wi-Fi networks in the state, cable with a plethora of channels including original programming from the UD community and the University’s 24/7 FixIt! service. 

Students indicate that another major incentive to living on campus is the location. A shorter distance means longer leisure.

“The top reason for living on campus is location, location and location,” said student Anne Harney. “Where better than living in the middle of it all, close to classes, close to Trabant, and close to where everything is happening?” 

Priority for housing is not first-come, first-served as long as students apply by the deadline. Instead, priority is based on the number semesters a student has lived on campus. Students who are eligible to return to their room for the next year can use a “Return Request” option.

Details about the various living options and instructions on how to complete the application and preference form are available at the Housing Assignment Services website. Students are also welcome to contact the office by phone at 302-831-3676 or email at ud-housing@udel.edu.
