Take a quick and fun venue tour

Newark is home to the University of Delaware's dynamic, academic main campus. Everything the University has to offer is within reach - flexible resources and leading edge technology. Stroll the tree-lined brick paths and enjoy the Georgian-inspired architecture that houses this first-class research institution.

Start Here

Clayton Hall is a clean, modern facility featuring a theater-style auditorium, private meeting rooms, traditional classrooms, an impressive ballroom and a striking, open lobby.

A vibrant residential dining hall is just one of many dining options available to you. We also offer an extensive catering menu, from breaks and treats to cocktail receptions and full-course plated banquets.

Get Around

Take a short walk to Main Street and enjoy a remarkable array of offerings: restaurants, coffeehouses, shops and entertainment. Newark is a vital university town with a diverse, international community that maintains its collegiate roots.

Additional Facilities

The Bob Carpenter Center is an outstanding location for sporting events, concerts, trade shows, or any large gathering in Acierno Arena. The Bob Carpenter Club is a comfortable lounge overlooking the arena as well as Tubby Raymond Field at Delaware Stadium, that is available for events or as a meeting space in addition to three classrooms.

Additional facilities include two ice rinks and an outdoor pool, and during the summer, the University's classrooms and lecture halls, two theaters, two student centers, dining facilities and even the Morris Library are available for use. We can arrange for shuttle buses to help you get around campus.

Stay Here

Overnight accommodations range from modern residence hall suites to local hotels. Amenities include daily housekeeping, cable tv, local calls and voice mail, assistance from student staff members, and a campus market complete with fresh, locally-made ice cream!

The Courtyard Newark at the University of Delaware is located just yards from Clayton Hall's front doors and provides superior accommodations, dining and entertainment.
