FYI Stories

Moving in

Members of the Class of 2018 will move in on Saturday, Aug. 23, with other new and returning students to follow. Many UD offices and departments will offer special hours and services through the weekend.

Gas card policy

University of Delaware Transportation Services has announced a new policy for the Motor Pool, which will no longer issue gas fuel cards for use in refueling vehicles that are being rented from the Motor Pool.

Members of the University community are reminded that safety is UD's highest priority. Employees should not put themselves at risk, and those who expect difficulty traveling should contact their supervisors.  

UD Policy

The University Policy and Procedures Manual includes a section dealing with personal safety considerations for faculty and students. Please note the policy, which is reprinted here:

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

Information on any closings or late openings will be available on the UD home page and on UDaily as soon as possible after a decision has been reached.

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.
