Parents & Family

Welcome, Blue Hen Family!

Whether you're an alumni, a First-Generation parent, or if you're new to UD overall, we're to help you. Navigating our upcoming spring semester that looks different in the past will be a challenge for us all, but we're excited to work with you, and your student, to have the best semester possible. Ask us your questions, and be sure to get connected with us on social.


If your student has a current housing application, and didn't fill out the Spring 2021 Housing Intent Form, please have them email us. We'll work with them directly to have their housing needs met.

Let's get you connected

Living on campus is an exciting time for your Blue Hen, and you, too! Learn more about the upcoming semester, check out available housing info for the Spring, contact us with your housing questions and check in about billing.

We're here for you.

Follow us on Facebook; our page is dedicated to getting parents & families connected to all the helpful information! And of course, don't forget to check out what living at UD is like for your Blue Hen by visiting us on Instagram.

UD Families Are Invited to Join the Blue Hen Family Hub

The hub is a new way to stay involved with your student at the University of Delaware. Find information and resources to help your student thrive both on and off campus. Families of current students received an invitation this summer to join.


Residence Life & Housing is part of the Division of Student Life, which contributes and facilitates critical learning and development within healthy, inclusive and supportive communities, so that all students may thrive at UD and beyond.
