About University of Delaware

University of Delaware (UD or UDel) is Delaware's largest university and one of America's oldest educational institutions. UD dates back to 1743, when it was opened as a 'Free School' by a Presbyterian minister. The university underwent numerous name and administrative changes, and even closed between 1859-1870, until it became coeducational and was renamed the University of Delaware in the early twentieth century. Today, UD is a public research public university, although it remains privately governed and receives significant private funding. UD is classified as a 'Very High Research Activity University' according to the Carnegie Foundation, and it is informally referred to as an elite 'Public Ivy' alongside other prestigious public universities such as UCLA and the University of Michigan.

UD enrolls approximately 18,000 undergraduate students and 4,400 graduate students annually, including over 1,000 international students from 92 different countries. It frequently places highly in national rankings; US News & World Report ranked UD 30th amongst US public universities in 2017. The university excels in many disciplines, especially business, economics, engineering, and environmental science. Its Institute of Energy Conversion is the oldest solar energy research facility in the world, and its College of Engineering frequently ranks in the top 10 nationally. The university's sports teams are collectively known as the Fightin' Blue Hens, which compete in NCAA Division I. Notable alumni include former US Vice President Joe Biden as well as current New Jersey governor Chris Christie.

Morris Library is the main library on the University of Delaware campus and houses numerous special collections and rare book archives, research databases, and course reserves, as well as open study spaces and private study rooms. The library also offers video tutorials, research workshops, and help from subject librarians. Via the website, you can access online databases and the library catalog, and even reserve a study room in advance.
