Frequently Asked Questions

Am I guaranteed a new space if I fill out an application?
Unfortunately, we can only reassign students based on the spaces that are available. Room changes will be granted on a first come, first serve basis based on availability.

What if I want to change my room change options?
Students can email housing@drexel.edu before 5 p.m. on Wednesday, Oct. 2, 2019 for edits to their preferences. Housing and Residence Life is unable to honor any update requests after that time.

Will my eBill change?
There are different housing rates for different building and room types. You will experience a change in housing costs if you move to a different building or room type. Housing charges will be pro-rated based on the date you check into your new room.

What if I don't like my new assignment as much as the one I have now?
Once the applications have closed, you may not withdraw or change your request. Please be sure of your decision to move prior to submitting a room swap request.

How much time will I have to complete my move?
Housing and Residence Life will assign students a date during the weekend of Friday, Oct. 18 to Sunday, Oct. 20 to move. Students will be able to begin moving any time after 12 noon on the date they are assigned and will have until 11 p.m. that day to complete their move.
