It is located on the first floor of Perkins Student Center adjacent to the New Student Orientation office in Room 112.

Campus Stories

From graduates, faculty

As it neared time for the processional to open the University of Delaware Commencement ceremonies, graduating students and faculty members shared their feelings about what the event means to them.

Doctoral hooding

It was a day of triumph, cheers and collective relief as more than 160 students from 21 nations participated in the University of Delaware's Doctoral Hooding Convocation held Friday morning on The Green.

Interested participants can visit the Amazon “find a locker” site and select the Perkins Student Center location by searching for its nickname, “Thea.”

Once the purchase has been delivered to Thea, customers will receive a secure code via email that can be used to retrieve their package within three business days of its arrival. Thea can also be used for the secure, convenient return of any unwanted packages.

For more information on Amazon Lockers, including a short video tutorial on retrieving one’s purchase, see the website
