Transfer Student Guide

On-campus housing is not guaranteed, but we do anticipate offering housing to a limited number of transfer students. Priority will be based on current vacancies, commuting distance and application date.

New Spring 2016 transfer students may complete the housing application for 2016-2017 guaranteed returning student housing March 1 - March 31, 2016.

For Fall 2016: Transfer students may complete the housing application, and will be added to a non-guaranteed wait list. If you choose to apply, you should expect to hear from us promptly regarding any change in the status of your application.

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.
