UD is nestled in the north of Delaware, which has been ranked the 18th best state in the nation by the U.S. News & World Report. The University’s location means easy connections to destinations throughout the East Coast and around the world.

As well as an invaluable education and strong community spirit, there is a lot UD can offer. There are merit-based scholarships for the brightest students. Career Services provides invaluable assistance for life after graduation. For bachelor’s degree students, there’s a 93% rate of employment or further study within six months of graduation.
