Transfer Student Housing


For Spring 2018: Spring transfer students who applied through January 2, 2018 have been guaranteed housing for Spring 2018! Applications are still being accepted. We'll notify you as soon as possible after you apply if we are able to guarantee you Spring 2018 housing. Visit the Spring sign-up guide for complete information on applying.

For Fall 2018: New fall transfer students can complete the 2018-2019 housing application beginning March 1.

After you pay your $500 enrollment deposit through My Blue Hen Home, you'll be able to complete your housing application in the My Housing Portal within three business days.

In completing your housing application, you'll:

  • Verify your personal details;
  • Sign the Student Housing Contract (if you're under 18, a parent or guardian will need to sign the contract);
  • And complete a lifestyle questionnaire that can help us match you with a roommate.


As a transfer student, you are obligated to the Student Housing Contract 3 business days after being guaranteed housing*. This contract covers the entire 2018-2019 academic year (the “Contract Period”). 

*We'll send you an email from if you're guaranteed housing. Please keep an eye on your University ( email for updates from us!

You'll be charged the published rate for the selected/assigned hall type and room type.


Transfer students have unique needs. You're new to UD, but not new to the college experience. Take advantage of living on campus! Our programs can connect you to the resources that can help you meet your goals. Come out to social events that can help you connect to other students and to the Blue Hen Experience.

We plan great activities each year, including:

  • Chances to interact with peer mentors who understand the transfer experience;
  • Social and career planning events designed especially for transfer students;
  • Events that connect you to resources for academic advising, meeting degree requirements and graduate school!


Relax. We've got it covered.

The residence halls offer you 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.


If you have a dietary, medical or physical need that requires a housing accommodation, you must submit documentation to Disability Support Services. Documentation consists of an evaluation by an appropriate professional that explains the current impact of your condition to your housing request.

Requests for 2018-2019 housing accommodations are due to Disability Support Services by May 22, 2018. If you apply after May 22, please submit your request as soon as possible after applying. Documentation received late can result in an assignment that doesn't match your needs.

For complete details on housing requests involving needs, please refer to the Housing Accommodations page, or contact us at (302) 831-4663.


Another opportunity for you to get involved quickly on campus is through the Transfer Student Association (TSA). This group of transfer students looks for ways to connect you to other transfer students, to the residential complex and to the campus community.

TSA provides a great opportunity for you to get involved at the University of Delaware and enhance your college experience and leadership skills. You're welcome to join TSA at any time, but we recommend joining as soon as you get to campus!

For more information about being a part of this organization, please contact Alexandra Garney.
