Housing and Dining
Housing and Residential Living
Living on campus is a big part of the college experience. Each of Drexel's residence halls has its own distinctive features and amenities, but all of them offer common recreation and study lounges, kitchens, and laundry facilities. Individual rooms are equipped to provide personal telephone service, cable television, and Internet access. The residence halls and floors organize regular events, activities, and study sessions with assistance from the professional residential staff and resident assistants living in each hall. Freshmen who do not live with a parent or guardian are required to reside on campus. Sophomore students are required to live in University Housing, University-Approved housing, or University-Affiliated housing.
Drexel Campus Dining offers a variety of options, from the Handschumacher Dining Center with its themed food stations and all-you-care-to-eat meals to quick meals, snacks, and coffee at the likes of Creese Café, Northside Market, Ross Commons, and Starbucks, all of which accept Drexel Dining Dollars. In the neighborhood of campus, there's no shortage of pizza places and food trucks, but students also take advantage of local restaurants offering Indian, Ethiopian, Thai, and more.
