Housing Terms and Conditions

Move-In Day

Move in day is typically the first day of ELI Orientation. Please make your travel plans with this in mind.

If you arrive early, we cannot guarantee that you can move in early. If you are arriving early and want to move in early, you must contact ELI-Housing@udel.edu with your name, student ID, and housing reservation form. We will inform you if it is possible for you to move in early and what the early move in fee will be.

We recommend that you do not arrive to Delaware earlier than 2 days before ELI Orientation.

Reservations, fees, and payments

If the ELI makes a housing reservation for you, then you are responsible for paying the fees for that housing location. No exceptions. No refunds are possible.

Housing prices are subject to change without notice. We recommend that you view the housing prices on our website before coming to Delaware in order to be aware of any changes in price that may occur before you arrive.

CAP housing requirements

Students in the Conditional Admissions Program (CAP/Pre-CAP students) are required to live in the Global Community or in a homestay with an American family. Click here to learn more about housing requirements for CAP/Pre-CAP students.

Housing availability

Some housing types are not available for every session. We recommend that applicants submit their housing requests as early as possible to increase their chances of getting their preferred housing option.

For new students: Students who do not submit their Housing Reservation Form (with their plane ticket itinerary and their F-1 student visa) prior to arriving may not be able to move into housing on the first day of orientation.

Reservation confirmations

Housing assignments are not official until the student receives written confirmation of his/her accommodations from the ELI.
