Housing application changes

In order to manage the occupancy of University of Delaware housing so that all second-year students who wish to live on campus for 2016-17 have the greatest opportunity to do so, the housing application process for returning and upper-division students will change significantly beginning in September 2015.

Because of the events, UD Parking Services has informed the campus community that Academy Street north of Delaware Avenue will close at 4:30 p.m. 

Academy Street between Delaware Avenue and Lovett Avenue will close at 5 p.m., and the rest of Academy and Courtney streets will close at 6:45 p.m.

Winterfest will feature entertainment, roasted chestnuts, caroling, ice carving demonstrations and a tree-lighting ceremony.

Winterfest is a joint effort by the Newark Parks and Recreation Department, UD and the Downtown Newark Partnership, of which the University is a member.

The Winterfest rain date is Saturday, Dec. 7.
