Spencer to reopen Saturday

Following a Friday afternoon fire, the University of Delaware's Spencer Laboratory will reopen at 8 a.m., Saturday, Aug. 30, with the exception of Suites 131 and 133, which will be closed until further notice.

App for safety

UD now has a smartphone safety app that helps prevent crime and enables police better respond to incidents, making students even safer while at school.

The recommended path for pedestrian traffic from the Harrington Beach area to central campus is along the north side of the Perkins Student Center by Thompson Hall. 

Students and staff are reminded to comply with all laws regarding pedestrians and to follow the directions of the assigned construction flag personnel and/or police officers who are working in their best interest and safety.

Members of the community also are reminded that access to these construction sites is restricted. For safety and security reasons, access is only allowed to those authorized to be there. Security cameras monitor the sites, UD Police regularly patrol the area and trespassers are subject to arrest.

Both the Academy Street Dining and Residence Hall project and the Harrington Residence Hall renovation are scheduled to be completed by fall 2015.
