Get support
The Engagement Centers are home to Engagement Leaders, undergraduate students with leadership experience who serve as peer mentors for anyone interested in support. Engagement Leaders design programs meant to be fun and informative, connecting with resources and activities that can enhance the college experience. From Study Abroad to Study Skills, our Engagement Leaders will pair programming with partnership to help students see what is available to them at UD while providing something interactive to do on campus.

Each Engagement Center has a games station full of board games that you're welcome to play with! The Christiana Engagement Center also features a coffee bar; hang out with friends or meet fellow classmates in this casual space.

Pick up Packages
The Christiana Engagement Center houses the Laird Package Center, where residents of the Christiana Towers, George Read, Thomas McKean, James Smith, Independence, and Ray Street halls may pick up their packages. The Laird Package Center is open 10 a.m. to noon and 5–10 p.m. daily.
