Various on-campus living options are available to transfer students:
Transfer students may contact Residence Life & Housing to see if rooms on campus are available. Most transfer students will be housed in Smyth with other transfer students, however openings exist across campus. Email email@example.com to learn more about our Transfer Living Learning Community.
When space is available, housing assignments are made in the order in which housing applications are received with consideration given to the commuting distance to the University. Consideration is also given to the student's housing information; however, there is no guarantee of specific space, location, or roommate, etc. Although transfer students can request any upperclass area, availability in some of these areas may be limited. Regardless of where you are assigned, the opportunity to connect with other transfer students, share your experiences, discover resources, and become a part of the UD community through a special transfer student social network is available.
All students assigned to upperclass residence halls will be charged the published rate for the assigned hall type and room type. All upperclass students are required to pay the full amount for their assigned space whether or not it is the type of space requested on their Housing Application. Students who move from one hall or room type to a different hall or room type will be charged the published rate for the new space from the effective date of move-in.
Upperclass Honors Housing is available to residents that are committed to individual academic achievement. They organize and participate in extensive extracurricular, social, and cultural programs coordinated by Residence Life & Housing staff, Senior Fellows, and upperclass Honors student volunteers. To request Honors housing, please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org. Transfer students do not have to be enrolled in the Honors Program to live in Upperclass Honors Housing, but a 3.0 Grade Point Average is normally required. Buildings with Honors floors include Brown, Harter, Sypherd, and Sharp in North Central, and Cannon in South Central Campus. These buildings also have non-honors floors.
Substance-Free: Sussex Hall on South Central Campus is designated as a substance-free building where upperclass residents choose to commit to a healthy lifestyle and to maintain a lifestyle free from alcohol, tobacco products, and other harmful substances. Residents sign an agreement to adhere to the community expectations.
Female-Only Housing: Warner Hall is the only all-female residence hall on campus. Female students are welcome to join this diverse, vibrant community of upperclass women in our historic building. Freshman may request Warner Hall on the Housing Application under "Hall Type."
Air-conditioned rooms in Kent, Sharp, Squire, Sussex and Sypherd are available to request for an additional cost of $50 per semester.
