Housing Lottery Eligibility
For housing, class status is determined by a student's high school graduation year or University start term, not by the number of credit hours. Age of student needs to fall within the traditional undergraduate, upperclass age range.
To be eligible to participate in the lottery, each group member must be a UD student and must complete an online individual housing contract/application. Once each group member completes an online housing contract/application, then the group leader creates a roommate group requiring all group members to join the group, then group leader will need to verify the group. This roommate group determines the size of the group. To participate in the sophomore lottery, sophomore roommate groups have to be 2, 4, or 6 in size..
Incoming new fall semester transfer students are unable to participate within the housing lottery.
Any student can be withheld from lottery participation due to behavior and vandalism problems within their current residence. Students can also be withdrawn from lottery participation due to discipline sanctions and, in the judgment of Student Development staff, any inappropriate behavior. If a first-year student is removed from lottery participation, the student will receive his/her residence hall specific room assignment before returning to campus for fall semester.
Each first- and second-year student (classified by a student's high school graduation year or University start term, not by the number of credit hours) under 21 years of age, unmarried, and not living at a parent's permanent residence within 40 miles of UD with their parents or legal guardian is required to live in University housing. A completed notarized statement is required from first- and second-year students requesting to commute from a parent's permanent home.
