Drexel has a vibrant and active residential community, composed of nine residence halls, three affiliated properties, and 11 Living Learning Communities — providing elements that are unique to each living environment.
Join Jarod and Bella, two of our student ambassadors, for a detailed walkthrough of Drexel’s residential experience. We hope you enjoy this tour!
Life in a Residential Community
One thing's for sure, while living in any campus residence hall — Drexel students engage with peers in meaningful ways and form lasting connections. Surrounded by many of our residence halls, Race Street Walk is the epicenter for our residential communities as they enjoy academic and social activities together throughout the year. These include weekly events coordinated by our live-in Resident Assistants (RAs) and hall-wide events designed to bring residents together. Race Street is also where the Involvement Fair is held each fall and spring quarter, as well as other community cookouts and the annual Homecoming Bonfire.
You should feel more relaxed knowing that the staff members of Housing and Residence Life make sure that Drexel exists as a home away from home for all residential students. As you form a better connection to the Drexel campus and learn the values of living in a diverse community, engaging meaningfully with your peers, and gaining a greater sense of self-awareness — the professional and student staff members in Housing and Residence Life help you succeed both in and out of the classroom.
