Innovation Neighborhood

Drexel neighborhood

Positioned to be the preeminent university located at a major national transportation hub, Drexel will become one of the country's most dynamic and inviting urban universities; an essential civic, intellectual, and business partner; and a welcoming physical gateway to Philadelphia. In a mixed-use setting that brings robust education and research institutions together with the commercial sector, Drexel will anchor a vibrant innovation neighborhood in University City. We will continue to work with citizens, businesses, entrepreneurs, and government leaders to become a centerpiece of innovation, technology, globalization, and economic development in our region. Our first step will be to create an attractive and exciting front door to Drexel's University City campus at Philadelphia's 30th Street Station—one of the United States' most important train stations, connecting New York, Washington, and the entire East Coast.
