From its roots as a private academy in 1743, the institution today is a research-intensive, technologically advanced university with global impact. Come join us.

Our Story

Our alumni tell our story of achievement -- from the first class that included three signers of the Declaration of Independence and a signer of the Constitution to a Nobel Prize-winning scientist, a Tony Award-winning choreographer and the current vice president of the United States.

Our distinguished faculty includes internationally known authors, scientists and artists. State-of-the-art facilities support UD’s academic, research and service activities.

Campus life is welcoming -- enriched by distinguished guest speakers, NCAA Division I intercollegiate athletics, 300-plus engaged student organizations, concerts and other arts and cultural activities.

In addition to our vibrant main campus in Newark, UD has locations across the state -- in Wilmington, Dover, Georgetown and Lewes.

A thriving study-abroad program and expanding international partnerships further enhance our students’ education as global citizens.

Engaging with our Community

Engaged, dedicated, loyal and enthusiastic are some of the adjectives that describe the University of Delaware community.

The University plays an integral role in the city of Newark and the state of Delaware, working to better the community with service projects, research benefiting local agencies and industries, and public outreach throughout the state.

Among the University's greatest strengths is its long and vibrant tradition of public service. In a recent national survey, 75 percent of UD students indicated that they participated in community service by the time they were seniors. In 2015, UD was recognized with the Community Engagement Classification from the Carnegie Foundation for the Advancement of Teaching.

UD is the place to hear world-renowned speakers, enjoy first-rate music and theatre, cheer on Fightin' Blue Hens teams and see compelling exhibits, all of which complement the rich academic experience.
