First year move-in: August 18 & 19

Before Arrival

  • Select an arrival timeslot on the Housing Portal to schedule your check in 
  • Upload your photo for your UD ID to Porches
  • Keep your valuables, breakables, sentimental items and medicines labeled separately for YOU to carry into the hall
    • Label all of your belongings with your name, room number and hall
    • You will need to bring a photo ID in order to receive your Student ID and housing key
  • Complete your Post-Orientation Homework on Isidore (including your Community Education Modules)

Arriving on campus

  • There are specific routes for each residence hall to follow to expedite the move-in process. These routes are different from normal campus traffic flow.
  • When you arrive in front of your residence hall, volunteers will direct you to an unloading spot.
  • The driver needs to stay with the vehicle at all times so that as soon as the car is empty, it can be driven to the appropriate parking lot.
  • Blue carts will be available to help with moving items in, but feel free to bring your own dollies or handtrucks.
  • Once you have unloaded, please refrain from rejoining a move-in line… give everyone their timeslot to drop off!
  • Once you get to the Brown St. and E Stewart St., turn off your G.P.S. and follow the routes we have below:

To navigate traffic flow and maximize the elevators for hauling carts, we encourage anyone on the 3rd floor or below to use the stairs going up and down the hall. For those living on above the 3rd floor, we encourage you to use the elevator up and take the stairs down. Anyone with accessibility issues will be permitted to use the elevator, but note that there may be a wait to use the elevator with the increased traffic.
