Virtual and Physical Distant Activities

Students must have UD ID for entry. Face coverings, physical distancing and other safety precautions are expected and enforced at all events and activities (indoor and outdoor, except swimming). While we know members of our community in quarantine or isolation will be unable to enjoy in-person opportunities, we hope they will find community in virtual opportunities until they are cleared to resume in-person activities. All dates, times and locations are subject to change for any reason. For more information, email
