Our staff is committed to partnering with residents to create fun and engaging environments in the residence halls, a student’s home away from home. More than 230 staff members have been carefully selected and trained to create and support welcoming and inclusive living environments that are conducive to students' academic, personal and social endeavors.

To actively partner with students and campus colleagues to create a once in a lifetime community experience where students learn, contribute, thrive and achieve their aspirations.

Students

We empower our students to take ownership of their learning and living experience. We create environments and opportunities that cultivate each student's maximum potential for their educational and personal success.

Community

We create communities that promote student success and encourage residents to share diverse perspectives and form positive relationships. Free exchange of ideas, active citizenship and shared responsibility are essential to create vibrant communities within our residence halls.

Inclusion

We commit to developing environments where all students can feel a sense of belonging and are able to fully engage in the residence hall experience. If student rights are infringed upon, we commit to quick and skillful action. We are dedicated to upholding the University of Delaware’s commitments toward Non-Discrimination, Equal Opportunity, and Affirmative Action; and actualizing these tenets in our residence hall communities.

Partnership

We partner with students, parents, University colleagues, and the greater community to foster enriching experiences, which contribute to both individual student success and the overall University mission.

Excellence

We commit to achieving excellence through innovative practices. We utilize on-going assessment and evaluation and listen to the student voice to provide a distinctive on-campus experience.

Stewardship

We commit to supporting institutional priorities by being good stewards of the University's resources and acting with integrity.
