Apply for Housing

A Simple Guide

Housing applications are available via DrexelOne after you have confirmed your enrollment and submitted your $200 housing deposit. From our first-year students to our transferupper-class, and graduate Dragons, the application process varies slightly. However, completing the housing agreement, participating in roommate matching, and potentially even joining the Room Self-Selection (if entering in the fall) are the three most important steps to the housing application process.

Housing Agreement

This mandatory step will give you an opportunity to complete a lifestyle questionnaire and sharing housing preferences with your future potential roommate(s), even if you already have a preferred roommate.

Room Self-Selection

If you complete you are a student entering in the fall term and submit your application by the appropriate deadline, you will have the option to participate in Room Self-Selection. If you do not select your room through Self-Selection, you will be assigned a room by Housing and Residence Life. 

Roommate Matching

You will have the option to participate in roommate matching, where you can opt to identify a roommate(s) using the lifestyle questionnaire. However, you can also indicate roommates you already know and wish to live with in the housing application.

Don't forget: Drexel's housing calendar can give you a sense of key dates and deadlines for you to be aware throughout the year.
