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 testing involves blowing a non-toxic smoke into the sewer lines. The smoke will reveal places where storm and other surface waters are entering the sanitary system.

During this testing, gray smoke might exit through vents pipes on roofs of buildings and through sewer breaks.

Those with questions concerning this work should call Jim Morrissey of Savin Engineers at 914-769-3200, ext. 225, or Rob Koechert at 302-266-9600.
