Overnight Visit Information:
Overnight visits are offered to high school seniors during the regular academic year
(September through April). Visiting students who wish to stay overnight will be matched
with a freshman host and will stay in the host's residence hall room. There are no
extra beds in the residence hall rooms, so be sure to bring your sleeping bag!
How do I arrange an overnight visit?
To register for an overnight visit, click here and fill out a registration form or call the Office of Admission at 800-628-999.
To ensure the best possible hosting experience, please register for your visit at
least two weeks in advance. Overnight visits are available Sunday through Thursday
What if I want to stay with someone I know?
Visiting students who wish to stay with someone they know are free to make overnight
arrangements on their own. Please register for a campus visit, though, so that we
may arrange meetings, tours, classes and the like.
How do I get to campus from the airport?
Visitors are responsible for making airport transportation arrangements. The Dallas
Area Rapid Transit (DART) system provides some options, or you can use a shuttle service
such a SuperShuttle.
Where will my parents stay?
We are unable to provide on-campus accommodations for family members or friends accompanying
visiting students. Family members or friends who need a place to stay can take advantage
of arrangements we have made with several preferred hotels in the area.

What should I bring?
Pack a sleeping bag, pillow, towel, personal items, comfortable clothing and shoes
and anything you would normally need for an overnight stay.
Do I need spending money?
While you may need money on hand for airport transportation, emergencies or a UD t-shirt,
you will not need to be concerned about paying for meals. The overnight stay includes
at least three meal tickets for you to enjoy meals on campus.
What will I do with my host?
Overnight visitors will experience a typical campus evening, attending campus events,
eating in the cafeteria and experiencing residence life. In some cases, hosts may
have obligations including a class, studies, club meetings and even work study positions
on campus. For this reason, we suggest that overnight visitors bring a flexible attitude
for the visit.
