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 approximately 11,500 students of diverse backgrounds.

On September 10, 2007 Wilmington College officially became a university after being approved by the Board of Trustees and the Middles States Association of Colleges and Schools. The name change helps to better reflect the emphasis on baccalaureate and higher degree programs that distinguish Wilmington University from other community colleges as well as effectively communicate the full commitment and mission of the University.

The program of day, evening, and weekend 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, and weekend modular formats. Introduced in 2005, 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.

Wilmington University's main campus is located near the city of Wilmington and 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, Delaware; and the University Information Center in Rehoboth Beach, Delaware. In New Jersey Wilmington University offers programs on Burlington County College and Cumberland County College campuses in addition to a selection of courses offered at Salem Community College.

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.
