Endless Resources, Either Way

No matter if you are living on campus or commuting, Drexel provides you with endless resources and opportunities to make your time here as fun and successful as possible.

Residential Living

For students who choose to live on campus, Housing and Residence Life provides a safe and welcoming environment to live and learn. Residential students enjoy academic and social activities throughout the year, such as weekly events coordinated by Resident Assistants (RAs), and hall-wide events designed to bring residents together. Who knows — maybe you'll apply to be an RA and help shape the Drexel experience of those around you.

Commuter Support

Students who live off campus don't feel less connected to the Drexel family. That's because the Community Student Association (CSA) is dedicated to developing programs that foster a sense of belonging among commuters and off-campus students, advocating for the needs of the commuter population, and empowering students to educate faculty and staff about the unique needs of students who do not live on campus. 

Dining at Drexel

Drexel offers many dining options around campus to match any appetite and even dietary preferences. Drexel Campus Dining makes it easy to use your Dining Plan — it's loaded directly to your DragonCard. You can find the best Dining Plan for you by using Drexel Campus Dining's Find Your Fit tool.
