What is the Global Community?

At the Global Community, each 4-bedroom apartment will house 4 students.

Students may request roommates (students who share the apartment) or we will assign roommates. 

Living in the Global Community meets the housing requirements for AT/Pre-AT students. Limited spaces are available in Global Community.

Price 2024-2025

Each ELI student must pay a rent of US $1,100 per month for Global Community apartments.*

Leases are 12 months, from Session 1 (August 21, 2024) to Session 6 (August 17, 2025).

New residents must also pay a one-time deposit of one month’s rent when they move in.

 Special notes:

  • The deposit will be returned to the student after they move out if the apartment is left in good condition and is clean.
  • * Prices subject to change without notice.

Payment and Contract Information

Students will be charged for their accommodations through a bill sent to the student several days before the month begins. Rent must be paid before each month begins in order to avoid a late fee of $50. Payment can be made with credit card, money order (made out to the University of Delaware), or cash.

Students are required to sign a Resident Agreement which states the conditions and rules to live in the Global Community. Students are expected to comply with the statements on the contract and will be held accountable for Global Community policies.

All reservations must be made through the ELI Housing Coordinator. Leasing directly with the leasing office may result in financial and academic consequences for AT students. Please contact eli-housing@udel.edu with any questions or concerns.
