Welcome to the Graduate Student Experience at Stiles Hall!
My name is Durda Rajsic Catto and I am the Assistant Director / Resident Director that oversees the Graduate Student Experience here at Drexel University. Currently the Graduate Student Experience is housed in Stiles Alumni Hall on the Center City Campus. Stiles Hall is a sleek, sophisticated and safe building with a 24/7 security desk. We offer 1-, 2- and 3- bedroom apartments to postgraduate students. We are very close to the academic buildings on the Center City Campus and just a shuttle ride away from the Queen Lane Campus and the University City Campus.
The goal of the Graduate Student Experience is to keep you engaged while you are here at Drexel not only academically but also socially. We are located in the heart of Philadelphia and use that to our full advantage by exploring the city and taking advantage of all the restaurants, bars and cultural events. It is our hope to provide our post graduate students with a balanced experience offering them a break from their academic rigors.
In the past we have offered such events as: Walking tours of the City, Graduate Student Experience Dinner Series, Morning Coffee, Study Sessions, Study Breaks, Networking Happy Hours, and Resident Assistant Signature Events : Rock Climbing, Basketball, Tutoring.
Take a look at some of the Stiles Residents testimonials:
Stiles hall truly is a hall for graduate students. It is very quiet almost all of the time, thus providing a good study environment for any graduate student. Also, the atmosphere with the building is a safe in recognizing how stable the security is here at this facility. Moreover, Stiles hall has successfully and happily housed many students; for Stiles makes it evident in how there is a great representation of Drexel's various graduate departments here within this graduate housing complex. And finally, aside from providing safety, a good working environment, and a diverse yet unified student environment, Stiles hall also provides access to city that is filled with lots to do and many opportunities to relax, to explore, and to enjoy!

Living at Stiles has offered me everything I need as a graduate student. Being amidst everything in center city is made only more convenient by the quick shuttle ride to Drexel's University City Campus. With all of the accommodations and friendly staff, it's an ideal place to live while studying in graduate program.
