The University of Delaware Residence Halls consist of over fifty buildings that house in excess of 7,000 students on geographically diverse areas of campus that are near to classroom, laboratory and administrative buildings. There is a dining hall within a short walk of all residence halls; and fitness, public computing sites, and campus convenience food stores are also located adjacent to sets of buildings. All residence halls feature state of the art fire alarm and suppression systems including individual room smoke detectors and sprinkler heads. In addition, all halls are locked twenty four hours a day and have an advanced security system featuring door alarms and a key card entry system restricting access to only those residing in the building. All halls are smoke free and include public area lounges, laundry and kitchen facilities, TVs, mailboxes, and quiet study spaces. Room furnishings include single beds which may be bunked by calling 831-1141, dressers, desks and study chairs, lighting, wastebasket, closets or wardrobes, and window treatments. Mattresses are 36 inches wide by 80 inches long, requiring extra-long fitted sheets. Kitchenette and living area furnishings are provided in on-campus apartments. You need to provide your own linen, dishes, pots and pans, utensils, and paper products. All University furnishings and facilities are identified with barcode labels. Please do not remove these labels.
There are a range of options for living environments from single sex halls to coed by floor or hall and rooms that accommodate from one to three other roommates, and options for living by oneself.
