New and Returning Students - Apply for Housing - Fall 2018

NEW and transfer students

As a first year student, this website will act as an online resource guide to help you make an informed decision regarding campus living. Please take the time to browse these pages thoroughly, as there is a lot of information about the on-campus experience that will be important to you.

There are six traditional residence halls on campus for freshmen and transfer students, as well as two “apartment-style” living complexes - one on campus and one off campus (a minimum of 30 credit hours is needed to qualify for the apartment-style living complexes).

Living on campus offers the unique ability to experience all that DSU has to offer, learn more about yourself, and help prepare you for life after college. Each residence hall enables you to live with your peers, classmates, and friends.

If you have any other questions or concerns, please contact the Department of Housing and Residential Education at 302.857.6326 or email housing [at] desu.edu. We hope to make your life at DSU as rich and rewarding as possible, as well as feel like home.
