University Village


This on-campus, student housing neighborhood is the third of three phases at this campus. It is located on 25 acres of land owned by the university. Ambling originally began its relationship with the university back in 2001 when it completed the original phase of on-campus housing. Following the success of the first phase and shortly thereafter a second phase of housing, Ambling was engaged to develop University Village, a student community and dining facility located within the DSU campus.

Featuring four-story residential buildings with contemporary architecture and distinctive brick and stucco exterior treatments, University Village comprises four buildings containing 300 units, 628 beds and a 250 seat dining hall facility. As in the first two phases, the units were designed primarily for upper classmen and graduate students and feature luxury apartments in one-bedroom/ one-bath, two-bedroom/two-bath and four-bedroom/ two-bath configurations ranging from 540 to 1,241 square feet. Each comfortably furnished apartment has full sized beds, a full kitchen with refrigerator, ice maker, range, microwave and dishwasher, high-speed university linked Internet access, cable TV and university-linked private phone service as well as convenient living and dining areas. Each suite-style unit offers many of the same amenities with a kitchenette in lieu of a full kitchen. Each floor also provides conveniently located laundry facilities. University Village features community areas, study rooms, picnic areas and ample green space. Fire alarms, sprinklers, and extinguishers, exterior blue light emergency phones, intrusion alarms, bedside panic-button alarms, card access for building and unit entry doors as well as keyed knobs on each bedroom door are also provided. This community is very nicely landscaped which adds to its striking curb appeal. Delaware State University made the effort to ensure that this new community blended with the overall campus master plan for the best interest of the students and for the continued growth of the University. Student housing is in great demand at this rapidly growing campus. This project provides attractive new housing for upper classmen and graduate students, many of whom lived in residence halls or in market-rate housing further from campus. Financed with tax exempt bonds, the project is owned by a non-profit foundation.
