It is located on the first floor of Perkins Student Center adjacent to the New Student Orientation office in Room 112.

Campus Stories

Optimizing Delaware courts

Over the past year, students and faculty from UD's Lerner College have helped the Delaware Judiciary to make a number of process and management improvements.

STEM for the holidays

Melissa Jurist, coordinator of K-12 education in the College of Engineering at the University of Delaware, offers suggestions to get kids excited about science, technology, engineering and math.

Interested participants can visit the Amazon “find a locker” site and select the Perkins Student Center location by searching for its nickname, “Thea.”

Once the purchase has been delivered to Thea, customers will receive a secure code via email that can be used to retrieve their package within three business days of its arrival. Thea can also be used for the secure, convenient return of any unwanted packages.

For more information on Amazon Lockers, including a short video tutorial on retrieving one’s purchase, see the website
