Graduate Student Housing

Welcome to the University of Delaware!


We have a limited amount of on-campus apartments for new, incoming graduate students. University graduate housing is offered for one year only and is located in our University Courtyard Apartments residence hall.

The 2024–2025 Graduate Housing Application is currently open. Students will be able to apply through their My Housing Portal.

2024 Move-in information


Welcome to our new, incoming graduate students! You will find all your move-in details in an email from our office, but below are a few tips to help you plan for move-in.

  • Students' move-in date will depend on the date they selected in their application. Students can find their move-in date in an email they received from our office with their assignment information.
  • Students will receive their housing assignment via email approximately two weeks before their move-in date.
  • All graduate students will check in at the University Courtyard Apartment's Clubhouse (main office) located at 1 Scholar Drive, Newark, DE 19711. Students can check in between 9 a.m. and 5 p.m. on their assigned day. Students who cannot check in between these hours on their assigned day, should email, and we will try to accommodate the request.
  • Students must pick up their ONEcard (student ID) before they move in. Visit the ONEcard website for more information and their office hours.
  • Students who are bringing a car to campus will need to purchase a University of Delaware parking permit. Permits can be purchased online through University of Delaware Parking Services. Students who will have a car on-campus during move-in must pay for metered parking in the area.

Housing for graduate students is not guaranteed. 

Our ability to guarantee housing for graduate students will be dependent upon the number of applications received. If the number of applications exceeds the available spaces, we will give priority to first-time students arriving this fall and distance from campus of the permanent address on record for students, giving priority to students who live the furthest distance.

Housing is only available for individual students. We do not have housing for students with partners/families. If a graduate student has a partner/spouse who is also a new graduate student, we will do our best to house them together, but each space is billed per person.

Graduate students will be housed in a two bedroom, two bathroom apartment located in our University Courtyard Apartment building 600. A diagram of the apartment is also available.

Students who are guaranteed housing will have three business days to decline housing without fee. After three business days, guaranteed students will be subject to release fees if their request for release is approved. Release is not guaranteed.

Students will have three contract start/move-in date options:

  • Monday, July 15, 2024
  • Saturday, July 27, 2024
  • Thursday, August 15, 2024 

Students will be billed based on the move contract start date that is on or before their move-in date. For example, if a student moves in on July 20, they will be billed beginning July 15.

Students are billed on the first of the month to the student’s UD financial account. 

Students who select a July 15 or July 27 contract start will be billed on August 1, 2024 for July and August.

Students who select the August 15 contract start will be billed on September 1, 2024 for August and September. 

Housing ends on Sunday, June 1, 2025. Students will not be permitted to renew and will need to move out on or before June 1, 2025.  

Students have continuous access to their space from the first date of their contract until the end of the contract. There’s no need to move out of your apartment during breaks or Winter Session. 

Yes, even if a student is not staying during Winter Session, rent is still owed as this is a continuous contract.

There is a space in the housing application to request a roommate. Roommates are not guaranteed and your requested roommate must also request you in their housing application.
