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.

Chilled water line repair

A leak in a chilled underground chilled water line on UD's West Campus is expected to cause difficulty with traffic and access to some areas of the Rodney Residence Hall Complex during move-in weekend.

The ringing of the carillon was initiated by Megan FitzGerald, vice president of University affairs in the StUDent Government Association, working with IT University Media Services. 

“We identified the ringing of the University’s bells as a simple way to allow members of the UD community to pause in memory,” FitzGerald said.
