Mayor: Efforts to keep DSU campus in city came down to $$

Delaware State University is moving its New Castle County campus out of Wilmington.

About 85 students will move to a former U.S. Army Reserve building in Milltown DSU obtained in 2011. The university estimates the new location will help boost revenue by about $7 million over 10 years.

Wilmington Mayor Dennis Williams says obviously, the city is disappointed.

Officials outlined plans to hold tuition steady and seek revenue elsewhere at a Board of Trustees meeting Monday. The tuition freeze is tied to plan to boost enrollment at the Dover main campus by 3 percent.
