Overnight Visit

Overnight Visit Program

Tour our first-year residence halls. Meet current students and your future classmates while you spend the night in the RecPlex. Get up early and grab breakfast in Marycrest Dining Hall on the way to an academic experience. During an overnight visit, you can live the UD experience and discover if this is where you belong.

Overnight visits are only available during the spring semester to high school seniors who have been accepted to UD.
