Warner Women - All-Woman Housing

Available in: Warner

Built in 1914, Warner Hall was one of the first buildings that made up the Women’s College at the University of Delaware. Preserving the principles upon which it was found, Warner Hall continues to be an all-woman residence hall with rich traditions.

Living in Warner, a student will be surrounded by its history where every piece of furniture, every room, and every painting has a different story. Women in Warner will have the option to participate in programming and have access to resources that can empower them and support their development as a woman.

Substance Free Housing

Available in: Sussex

Substance Free Housing is a Housing Community available for students who are willing to make an affirmative commitment to maintain a living environment free from tobacco, alcohol, and other drugs.

Sussex Hall, on Central Campus, is a Substance Free residence hall for the 2017-2018 academic year. Sussex is air-conditioned and coed by floor, with single and double rooms. Upper division students interested in an experience free from smoke and alcohol can select this building.

To apply to Substance Free housing, you'll complete the supplemental application within the Housing Application.

NOTE: Most Housing Options are only available to upper-division students, but Substance-Free Housing may be available to freshmen with special circumstances.

Upper Division Honors Housing

Honors Program Logo

Available in: Harter and Sharp

Upper Division Honors is a housing option for students enrolled in the Honors Program. In addition to living among Honors students, the community is enhanced by Senior Fellows.

Senior Fellows are upper division Honors students who are familiar with the Honors Program and have a strong commitment to help other students learn how to complete an Honors education. They serve as Honors program liaisons as well as promote and encourage activities among the Honors community in Harter and Sharp.

Upper Division Honors Housing is only available for students in the Honors Program.

Executive Apartments

A variety of 2-person, fully-furnished apartments (most are air-conditioned) are located in traditional housing throughout campus, including first year student buildings.

Originally built for live-in staff, these apartments are now available for upper division students.

Priority is given to students who are members or leaders of executive councils in Registered Student Organizations.

Executives will be encouraged (and given resources) to host an event or information session related to their organization within the residence hall.

Residents of these apartments are eligible for on-campus meal plans, but aren't required to purchase a full meal plan. These apartments are very similar to those in the Christiana Towers - break housing is included in the academic cost and you don't need to complete any additional applications to stay.

Students need to reapply each year to live in Executive Apartments.

Interested students should contact us for more information and a list of apartments.

All Gender Housing

All Gender housing provides housing options for all students, including those who identify as transgender, are questioning their gender identity, don't adhere to prescribed gender classifications, who are uncomfortable with a same-sex roommate, or who don't want a same-sex roommate.
