Graduate Student Life

Our graduate students are deeply committed, engaged and highly skilled, and we look forward to welcoming many more of these energetic scholars to our UD family. We remain firmly committed to creating an educational community that is intellectually, culturally and socially diverse, and enriched by the contributions and full participation of people from many different backgrounds.


Graduate Student Housing

Those interested in housing options for graduate students are encouraged to go to the Living Off Campus page for available options. On this page, you will find resources on locating a place to live, budgeting, finding a roommate, safety and other topics. It includes a link to the Places4Students page with local information and listings for the Newark area.

Graduate students can discuss off campus living and share information on our Google Groups discussion board.  Information on how to use the discussion board most effectively to suit your needs can be found here.

For more information and to apply for housing available through the University, visit UD's Graduate Student Housing webpage.  

Our Community
