Arrival on Campus

The University has announced a number of measures to protect the health and safety of our community from the novel coronavirus disease (COVID-19), including suspending all University-sponsored on-campus events and gatherings until further notice.

We continue to be committed to protecting the health and safety of our campus, our community and beyond. At this point, Fall Arrival and the Welcome Weekend program in August are scheduled as planned. Any programmatic changes will be shared on the STFP Webpage.

The transition to campus life comes with many exciting traditions at UD! 

  • Early drop off is a wonderful opportunity to bring your belongings to campus before classes start. You have a one-hour window to unload your items, allowing you the opportunity to avoid the move-in lines!
  • Fall move-in is the day that all first-year students gain access to their residence hall prior to the start of classes. This day also kicks off the start of Welcome Weekend.
  • Welcome Weekend is a complement to the orientation program first-year students attended over the summer months. During this weekend, students take a deeper dive into campus resources and academic preparation, while beginning to meet fellow classmates.
  • Weeks of Welcome (WoW) extends the introduction to UD past the first day of classes. WoW identifies various programs throughout the first weeks of the semester that may support students in their transition to life at UD.
