Welcome Home

Welcome Home

When you arrive on campus, you’ll find a close-knit residential community where we look out for one another. You’ll also find:

  • Inclusive excellence — We believe that diversity is essential for academic and moral excellence. Here, we treat each person with dignity and respect, celebrate our commonalities, and embrace our differences.
  • Faith that’s more than a feeling — In our supportive living and learning environment, you’ll have the freedom to define what faith means to you, regardless of your religious background, and you will find the tools to discover your vocation so that you can live a life of purpose.
  • The friendliest neighbors — Front porches are a popular gathering place and everyone feels welcome. It’s no wonder our students are among the happiest in the nation.

We look forward to seeing you this fall!


Start connecting with fellow classmates this summer by using #FutureFlyer. And as you prepare to start at UD, remember to stay up-to-date with your Porches to-do list throughout the summer.
