Transfer Student Housing


Fall 2017 Guaranteed Housing Deadline: July 14, 2017

For Fall 2017: New fall transfer students may complete the housing application beginning March 1. Students who submit applications by July 14 will be guaranteed a space in University housing for 2017-18. Students who submit applications after that will be guaranteed on a first-come, first-served basis.

After you log in to My Blue Hen Home and pay your $500 enrollment deposit, you will be granted access to the My Housing Portal within three business days to complete your housing application.

An additional $200 prepayment is not required for newly admitted students.

You, the student, will:

  • Verify your personal details
  • Sign the Student Housing Contract. If under 18, a parent or guardian will need to sign the contract.
  • Complete a lifestyle questionnaire


The Student Housing Contract will become legally binding for transfer students 3 business days after being guaranteed housing*. This contract covers the entire 2017-2018 academic year (the “Contract Period”). 

*Students will be sent an email from to their University email address when they are guaranteed housing. Please keep an eye on your University email address for correspondence from us!

All students assigned to upper-division residence halls will be charged the published rate for the selected/assigned hall type and room type.

Residence Life & Housing oversees housing policies. Students must abide by all policies; policies are designed to protect the rights of all students and to encourage responsibility in each community.


Transfer students may have the opportunity to live on campus and have unique needs. Transfer students are new to UD, but not new to the college experience. We provide programming that aims to connect new UD students to the requirements and resources that help them to be academically successful and we provide social events that help students connect to the Blue Hen Experience.

The following activities are planned:

  • Interaction with peer mentors who understand the transfer experience
  • Social and career planning events designed for transfer students
  • Resources for academic advising, meeting degree requirements and graduate school

Please contact Michele Kane at or (302) 831-4663.


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.

Take a virtual tour of the residential complexes.


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 submit documentation of your need, consisting of an evaluation by an appropriate professional that relates the current impact of your condition to your housing request should be submitted to Disability Support Services by July 14 for Academic Year 2017-2018 housing.

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).


Another opportunity for transfer students to get involved quickly on campus is through the Transfer Student Association. This is a student-run organization comprised of transfer students looking for ways to connect transfer students to one another, to the residential complex and to the campus community. 

TSA provides a great opportunity for transfer students looking to get involved at the University of Delaware and enhance their college experience and leadership skills. Students are encouraged to join this organization when they first arrive on campus but all students are welcome at all points of the year. 

For more information about this being a part of this organization, please contact Jamie Kronberger, Area Coordinator for the Christiana Towers.
