11:30 a.m., May 17, 2013--The University of Delaware’s Office of Residence Life and Housing Assignment Services will become one unit, Residence Life and Housing, as of July 1.  

“Bringing these two groups together is incredibly positive,” said Kathleen Kerr, who will serve as director of the combined Residence Life and Housing.

'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.

The merging of the units reflects best practice nationally and is possible because of the retirement of the current director of Housing Assignment Services, Linda Carey, who has been at the University for 33 years. 

“I will miss working with Linda a great deal,” Kerr said.  “But I am excited about the possibilities this presents to offer even better services and residence hall experiences to students by joining our work together and simplifying processes.”

Residence Life and Housing will be located on the first floor of the new Eliphalet Gilbert Hall on East Campus.

UD residence halls are home to diverse, inclusive communities with over 7,300 freshman, transfer and upper division students. The University is a student’s home away from home, and living on campus is an integral part of the college experience. 

More than 200 staff members have been carefully selected and trained to work with students to create and maintain living environments that are conducive to academic, personal, and social engagement.
