ON-CAMPUS HOUSING FOR 2016-2017
OPEN ENROLLMENT: SEPTEMBER 1 - SEPTEMBER 30, 2015
MARCH 1 - 31, 2016
GUARANTEED DEADLINE: MARCH 31, 2016
Students transitioning from the University's Associate in Arts program to the Newark campus are unique. AA students apply to live on campus like returning Upper-Division students, but we know that you are new to the process.
When you live in the residence halls, you become part of a community rich in history and tradition. You will have one important thing in common with everyone in our residential community: Excellence.
Students who choose to live on campus have higher GPAs, feel more supported, and are more connected to the University. Resident students learn essential skills that will serve them in their careers and more broadly in life.
If you apply for 2016-2017 UD Housing during the Upper-Division Open Enrollment Period, September 1 - September 30, 2016, you will be able to utilize the self-select feature, which works like selecting an airline or concert seat.
Everyone who applies by September 30 will take part in a lottery to determine who receives a March 2016 Time Slot for initial room selection and who will select a room in later rounds of room selection. See more about Upper Division Room Selection.
March Guarantee Enrollment:
AA students can also apply for guaranteed 2016-2017 housing, March 1 - March 31, 2016. March applicants will be assigned time slots for room selection in later rounds.
Housing for 2016-2017 is guaranteed for returning students who complete an application by March 31, 2016.
Be sure to review the Student Housing Contract for 2016-2017. Remember, the Student Housing Contract is a financially binding contract, similar to signing an off-campus lease. You will sign this electronically as part of the Housing Application Process.
The entire process is detailed in the Returning Student Sign Up Guide for Upper-Division Open Enrollment.
Although students are guaranteed a space on campus, we do not guarantee a specific location or preferred roommate. Applications received after 3/31/16 will be accommodated as space permits.
On-campus residents always have something to do and someone to meet. Whether you're hanging out in the common rooms or participating in activies and events, you'll connect with other students in the residence halls on a daily basis.
Associate in Arts students who receive a March 2016 time slot are eligible to return to the housing application in February and apply for the Bridge Experience, a Living Learning Community in Independence East designed to support your needs. If you don't get an initial time slot for March, you will still have an opportunity to request the Bridge Experience community.
Just like all resident students, you can also participate in leadership and learning opportunities like the Student Initiative Fund, Service Initiatives and Complex Community Council. These are great ways to not only get engaged, but to enhance the skills and experience needed in life after college.

All students assigned to upper-division residence halls 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. Students who move from one hall or room type to a different hall or room type will be charged the published rate for the new space from the effective date of move in.
