Campus Life

Drexel University operates three campuses in Philadelphia, plus the Academy of Natural Sciences of Drexel University and a LeBow College of Business Malvern Campus.

The University City Campus is home to most of Drexel's facilities, including the Main Building (main administrative center), most colleges and school offices, the Daskalakis Athletic Center and Recreation Center, student residence halls, W.W. Hagerty Library, and the majority of academic classrooms. The Center City Campus consists of Drexel's College of Nursing and Health Professions and the College of Medicine. The Queen Lane Campus is also home to the College of Medicine. A campus bus system connects all three campuses and requires a DragonCard ID to board.

Drexel runs on both a quarter and semester system, depending on the academic college or school. Most academic programs use the quarter system; a term lasts 10 weeks, and students attend classes year-round.

Drexel's campuses host a wide range of activities, including but not limited to Division I varsity and recreational athletic events, dance and theater performances, guest lectures / workshops, and art exhibits. Learn more about events on campus by reviewing the University Events Calendar.

Drexel is committed to bettering the environment at large. Thanks to the Drexel Green initiative, students, faculty and professional staff can support and promote sustainable practices on campus. Campus improvements are supported by the Campus Master Plan and Public Realm Plan.
