Spring 2018 Move-In Guide

Fall residents living on campus: For Spring you'll either return to your Fall assignment or, if you complete a Mid-Year Room Change, to your new Winter/Spring assignment.

If you aren't living on campus for Fall, look for information from us via your University email account regarding your Winter assignment.

Did we miss something? Contact us online or call (302) 831-HOME (4663) with any questions.

Students and families can follow us on Facebook, Twitter or Instagram for the latest updates about deadlines and getting involved in the campus community!

Families, you can keep up with what's going on in the halls by following our family blog.

We’re excited for you to move into the residence halls and plunge into campus life at the University of Delaware! Whether you have questions about Move-In Day, living in the residence halls or how to get involved with campus life, we hope to guide you through the process.

If you are a student in your first year at UD or arriving new to UD this fall, you are invited to attend the Spring into Success conference.
