University Residence Halls
The residence halls at Drexel University create many opportunities for academic, intellectual and social involvement that encompass a great experience living on campus. Drexel residence halls provide amenities such as free laundry, residential programs, professional staff support, student billing services, flexible leases (3 to 12 months) in the case of study abroad or co-op outside of Philadelphia that a private residence building typically does not provide. Living in a Drexel residence hall offers the value of dedicated programming for resident students as they embark on and continue their college career. Each residence hall is managed by a live-in Residence Director with experience in creating residential communities and counseling students. Resident Assistants (RAs) are undergraduate students who act as mentors and community builders for the residents they serve. Each residence hall front desk is staffed by Residential Desk Coordinators, enhancing safety and support.
Residence halls also offer the advantage of integrating curricula into the residential component of the Drexel experience by bringing students together with faculty in residence hall multi-purpose spaces. Students who are engaged outside of the classroom have opportunities for more comprehensive learning; broadening their view of where learning can be experienced.
