The College of Agriculture and Natural Resources has two major teaching, research, and extension complexes: one on the UD Newark Campus and the other in Sussex County. In addition there are numerous other lands and facilities throughout the state that support the efforts of the College. And with our “350-acre classroom” just steps from main campus, we can provide hands on experience with animals, crop plants, wetlands, forest, greenhouses and more for every student, in every major.
