  • Delaware State University Guide to Residential Living
  • You will receive your housing application in the mail with your acceptance letter/package.  All first-year students are required to live in residence halls, except those who live with their parents or spouse.  The Department of Housing and Residential Education will consider exceptions to this upon receipt of a written request.

    Housing assignments for first-year students are made at random.  Reciprocal roommate requests and requests for non-smoking roommates are honored whenever possible. Once you have completed and mailed us your application along with your non-refundable $200 room deposit, we will assign you a room and a roommate.  If you already have friends, be sure to talk about what items each of you are bringing so you can make best use of the space in your room.

    We discourage students from pre-selecting a roommate for several reasons:

    • Students who were friends before college most likely have never LIVED together.  Living with a roommate is a very
        different relationship than that of a friend or acquaintance.  Often pre-selecting a roommate results in unrealistic
        expectations of each other.
    • Students who are friends are able to widen their circle of friends by living in different rooms and residence halls.
    • One of the greatest opportunities for a new college student is to learn how to live and build mutual respect with
        someone who is different from them.

    First-year students who wish to live together may make a request either on the housing contract or by contacting the Department of Housing and Residential Education at (302) 857-6326 by May 1 before the beginning of the academic year.  We make every attempt to pair mutual roommate requests.  The two students who request each other must also request the same options on the housing contract (living community, smoking, etc.).

    Please visit the Roommate Success Guide link for information regarding successful roommate living.
