Locating Your Brick
To find your brick on the walkway, you will need to know the coordinates of your brick. This information can be found by searching our website at www.udel.edu/delawarediamondbricksThe walkway contains 22 gray diamond-shaped pavers. Each of these pavers corresponds to a letter beginning with "A" at the walkway entrance on Main Street and continuing to the steps of Old College with "V." Your coordinate corresponds to a specific quadrant on the Diamonds Walkway. The engraved bricks surrounding the pavers are segmented into four quadrants, as shown in the diagram.For example, if your coordinate is A3, your brick is located in the area to the upper left of the first diamond-shaped paver, closest to Main Street
