Welcome to Wilmington University

Wilmington University is a private, non-sectarian university which offers both undergraduate and graduate degree programs in a wide range of instructional areas. The University began with a charter class of 194 students in 1968 and has grown to serve a student body of over 20,000 students of diverse backgrounds.

The program of day, evening, weekend, and online classes serves traditional high school graduates as well as non-traditional adult students in need of flexible scheduling. Classes are primarily offered in 15-week, 7-week, weekend modular, hybrid, and online formats. Fusion programs combine online and face-to-face learning. These programs are designed for students who wish to complete their degree in less time than is possible with traditional courses. Hybrid courses meet in both online and face-to-face formats.

Wilmington University’s main campus is located near the city of Wilmington in historic New Castle, Delaware. The campus is easily accessible by air, rail, and bus. Our central location in the northeast corridor of the United States provides students convenient access to the major cities of New York, Philadelphia, and Washington D.C. Recreational areas such as beaches and ski resorts are within easy driving distance.

Additional sites include the Wilson Graduate Center, Dover Air Force Base, Dover, the William A. Carter Partnership Center in Georgetown, and Brandywine. In New Jersey, Wilmington University offers programs in Burlington County, Gloucester County, Cumberland County, and the Joint Base Education Center for McGuire AFB/Fort Dix/Lakehurst Naval Air Station. In Maryland, select Wilmington University degree programs are available at Cecil College’s Elkton location.

Wilmington University generally serves commuter students and does not provide student housing facilities. However, the University welcomes all qualified students and assists those needing living accommodations by providing a listing of nearby rental opportunities.
