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 so that students, faculty and professional staff can travel freely between them, using their Drexel DragonCard IDs to board.

Drexel University runs on both a quarter and semester system, depending on the academic college or school. Most academic programs are scheduled on the quarter system; a term lasts 10 weeks and students attend classes year round. Drexel's campuses host plenty of activities, including Division I varsity and recreational athletic events, film screenings, dance, theater, art exhibits, fashion shows, robotics and engineering competitions, visiting scholar lectures / workshops, and gourmet meals at the student-run Academic Bistro. Many of these events are listed on the University Events Calendar.

Commitments to technological innovation and the environment are also part of daily university life. Members of the Drexel community have wireless access to the internet from anywhere on campus. On sunny days, you'll frequently see professional staff and students sitting outside, working on their laptops, sipping coffee from one of several on-campus cafés. 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.
