Spring Housing Application

Applying for Housing for Spring 2017



When you live in the residence halls, you become part of a community rich in history and tradition. Whether you are living in one of our historic buildings or one of our newest halls, you will have one important thing in common with everyone in our residential community: excellence. Students who live on campus consistently earn higher grades and are more involved with the UD community.


On-campus residents always have something to do and someone to meet. Whether you're hanging out in the common rooms or participating in activities and events, you'll connect with other students in the residence halls on a daily basis.



If you are applying for housing for the spring semester only, the Student Housing Contract and Dining Agreement are binding; students are financially responsible for the residence hall space and dining plan for the remainder of the academic year.

All students will be charged the published rate for the assigned hall type and room type. All upper-division students are required to pay the full amount for their assigned space whether or not it is the type of space requested on their Housing Application.

Current Housing Rates

Residence Life & Housing has designed policies to protect the rights of all students and to encourage responsibility in each community. To read the policies in detail, view the Student Housing Contract.


Relax. We've got it covered.

The residence halls offer students a variety of amenities at no additional cost. UD provides convenient services so you can focus on what matters most to you.

At the University of Delaware, there are various housing options to accommodate dietary, medical, and physical needs for students. We understand that there are circumstances where particular requests and accommodations need to be considered.

To accurately and equitably evaluate requests for housing based upon medical, psychological, or disability needs, you will need to submit documentation consisting of an evaluation by an appropriate professional that relates the current impact of your condition to your housing request. 

Documentation received late may result in an assignment that does not match your needs.

For complete details on housing requests involving needs, please refer to the Housing Accommodations webpage, or contact Residence Life & Housing at (302) 831-HOME (4663).
