Off-Campus Housing at UDel
Dorms are great, but they do have an expiration date. By your junior or senior year of college, you no longer need the cramped spaces and pandemonium of on-campus housing, not that you ever did. Find something much nicer and more affordable than the student housing provided by UD. More than half of the student body lives off campus and just like them, you’ll find a wide selection of apartment complexes and rental homes in Newark. Many of the rental options will be within walking or biking distance to campus. However, if you’re having a lazy day, the bus system in Newark and on-campus is very reliable. UD even has its own shuttle bus that comes every 20 minutes. Time your trips well, so you don’t miss your classes!
Mainly Main Street
In Newark, Main St. is home to most of the town’s restaurants, bars, and shops.

Grab a drink with friends and visit Deer Park Tavern or Klondike Kate’s, which has been serving up drinks since 1737.
