+ Coronavirus FAQs

Why did Lincoln close the residence halls? And why was Thorn Flats included? 

The safety of everyone on campus is the University’s highest priority. After consulting health experts and reviewing the CDC’s guidance regarding social distancing, the University decided to take proactive measures to minimize community spread at all residence halls on the main campus and Thorn Flats in Newark, Delaware. Students who live at Thorn Flats have contracted with the University; as such, the University is responsible for the safety of its residents.

What will happen to housing selection for next year? 

Housing selection will be postponed and completed online. Lottery numbers for the 2020-2021 housing selection process will continue to be sent via email. It is important that students check their Lincoln email.

I am a current student. May I still submit my housing deposit for next year or is it too late?

Yes, students may pay housing fees through the summer by contacting the Office of the Bursar.
