Transfer Student Guide

On-campus housing is not guaranteed for transfer students this year due to the high demand for upper-division housing. Transfer students will be accommodated as spaces become available. When you have completed the housing application, you will be added to a wait list and should expect to hear from us promptly regarding any change in the status of your application.

Transfer students may begin to apply for on-campus housing on the following schedule:

Admission for Application opens
Fall 2015 March 15

Transfer students will be accommodated as spaces become available.

Each year hundreds of students transfer to the University of Delaware.  Many transfer students choose to apply to live on campus for the convenience of access to campus resources, to participate in the multitude of programs and activities in our residential complexes and for the support of Residence Life & Housing staff members. 

Transfer Experience

Transfer students may have the opportunity to live on campus and have unique needs. Transfer students are new to UD, but not new to the college experience. We provide programming that aims to connect new UD students to the requirements and resources that help them to be academically successful and we provide social events that help students connect to the Blue Hen Experience.

The following activities are planned:

  • Interaction with peer mentors who understand the transfer experience;
  • Social and career planning events designed for transfer students;
  • Resources for academic advising, meeting degree requirements and graduate school

Please contact Michele Kane at or (302) 831-4663.

Transfer Student Association

Another opportunity for transfer students to get involved quickly on campus is through the Transfer Student Association. This is a student run organization comprised of transfer students looking for ways to connect transfer students to one another, to the residential complex and to the campus community. 

TSA provides a great opportunity for transfer students looking to get involved at the University of Delaware and enhance their college experience and leadership skills. Students are encouraged to join this organization when they first arrive on campus but all students are welcome at all points of the year. 

For more information about this being a part of this organization, please contact Cheri Skipworth, advisor and Complex Coordinator of Central Complex.
