Living In University City Tour
While academics and co-ops are a big part of Drexel, the time spent with friends around campus are just as important. In addition to 9 residence halls on two campuses, Drexel has plenty of places that are well-known for hanging out with your fellow classmates, where you can study or just take a break and relax.
Race Street Residences
Race Street Hall is just one of our residence halls. Race Street Hall offers 4-person suites, 9 on each floor. Each suite has two showers and a private bathroom and a kitchen area with fridge, sink, and cabinets. The suite’s lounge is a great place to get some homework done and hang out with friends. If you’re looking for a residence hall that allows you to have more than one roommate, this is a great option for you.
Millennium Hall is as impressive on the inside as it is on the outside. This is Drexel’s tallest building; its 17th floor has beautiful views of Philadelphia’s skyline. All rooms are double-occupancy, but the unique design of the rooms allows for private bathrooms. When you’re not studying, the first floor of the hall has a television and gaming equipment.
Race Street Walk
Race Street Walk is located in the center of some of our residence halls, including Race Street Residences, Myers Hall, and Kelly Hall. In the heart of this student residential district is the Library Learning Terrace. When you want to get away from your room and have the ability to study alone or in groups, the Terrace is a great option for you. The Terrace has a projector and private hub station for tutoring or coaching, whiteboards, and adjustable seating areas.
Chestnut Square is a living space complete with multiple food options. You’ll find Shake Shack for burgers, hot dogs, and fries; Boba King for bubble tea; Fuel for healthy and quick service meals; and Board and Brew for fresh food and games!
North Hall has four- and six-person suites. Each wing has a full kitchen, while each suite has a kitchenette. Students can take advantage of another sweeping view of Philadelphia in the sixth-floor study lounge/classroom. There are study areas on the first floor with dry erase boards and a game room with table games for all residents.
The Urban Eatery features six unique food concepts including the pizza/pasta, salad bar, smoothie, and coffee bar stations — all in one convenient on-campus location.
Greek Row is an entire street of most of the sorority and fraternity houses on campus. Greek Row is also home to many popular brother and sister campus events throughout the year.
