DSU is located in the historic city of Dover, the capital of Delaware, which has a geographical position at the center of the state. Its close proximity to the city of Philadelphia afforded Caesar Rodney a short horseback ride to sign the Declaration of Independence. The Constitution, the document that continues to protect our nation’s liberty, also declared Delaware as the “The First State” of the new Federal Union.
Arguably one of the best-kept secrets on the East Coast, Dover, with its current population of 35,810, provides a small-town flavor for students who want to learn without the hustle and bustle found on some city campuses. Dover’s short distance from other major cities, including Philadelphia, Baltimore and Washington, DC, makes it still feel close to metropolitan life.
Because it’s nestled in a small town, DSU is able to provide a comprehensive four-year education at a competitive cost and value compared to other schools in the region. The campus has many cultural and retail amenities, including Dover Mall across the street, the nearby Rehoboth/Ocean City beaches and outlet shopping.
Each residence hall has a professional and student staff that is responsible for the general welfare of resident students. The staff also aids students in developing individual responsibility and growth in the living-learning environment.
All rooms are assigned for double occupancy, except for those specifically designated for Resident Assistants. Room assignments are made on a first-come, first-serve basis, with preference given to in-state applicants and students in good academic standing. Students on academic suspension at the end of the spring semester will forfeit the privilege of a reserved space in the residence halls.
Residence hall registration periods will be based on the academic calendar. Specific dates and hours will be included in information forwarded to prospective students by the Director of Residence Life. Rooms are furnished by the University with beds, study desks and chairs. Rooms are inspected periodically in accordance with the health and safety standards of the University.
Students must be enrolled at least full time (12 or more undergraduate credit hours or 9 graduate credit hours) per semester in order to live in the University Housing. Dropped courses or failure to attend class (no show) which result in less than full time hours, may result in cancelation of housing contract. The Office of Business and Finance will notify all students who are classified as part time in the residence halls. Students will be required to make necessary schedule adjustments or accounts will be adjusted accordingly.
