'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.

University Facilities staff will be at work early Tuesday morning ensuring that parking lots and walkways are cleared if there is any snow accumulation. 

UD Policy

Faculty members unable to hold class should notify their departmental offices, and students unable to attend class should contact their professors. In such cases, UD policy states that students should be allowed to make up missed class time and canceled classes should be rescheduled when possible. 

The University's policy is reprinted below:

Faculty and students are not expected to take unnecessary risks to meet their teaching and learning obligations due to inclement weather. When classes have not been canceled, it is a matter of personal judgment whether traveling to campus is hazardous. Faculty should notify their departmental offices when weather precludes them from meeting their teaching obligations; similarly, students should notify their professors when inclement weather precludes them from class attendance. In such cases, students should be allowed to make up missed class time and, whenever possible, canceled classes should be rescheduled.

Weather information

Any updated information on closings or late openings will be posted on the UD home page and on UDaily. News also will be available through the UD telephone information line at 302-831-2000. In addition, information will be shared with the state Department of Education's School Closings and Delays website

Members of the campus community should not call UD Police so that telephone lines there can remain open for emergency calls.
