'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.

Food Bank boost

University of Delaware Parking Services' monthlong food drive program, in which motorists could make donations to pay parking citations, provided over 6,000 nonperishable food items to the Food Bank of Delaware.

Parking lots and pedestrian paths along Academy should be accessible throughout the period except when work is happening directly in front of a driveway entrance. 

Work will begin in the vicinity of Alison Hall and then proceed south down the street, ending at 413 Academy St. 

Gas service to the buildings along Academy Street will be affected for a two-hour period during the week of July 29, when the cutover to the new service is completed.
