Returning Undergraduate Student Housing

From Second-Year Students To Those in Their Final Year

Implemented in 2011, Drexel's Two-Year Residency Program was developed to provide both first-year and second-year students with a wide range of learning and lifestyle housing options to customize their Drexel living experience. Second-year students have a variety of housing options to choose from, but they must choose from one of the housing options below unless they receive an exemption. Meanwhile third-year, fourth-year, and fifth-year students can choose to live off-campus if they want; however, there are many benefits to living on campus!

Second-Year and Beyond: Undergraduate Housing at Drexel

Operated by Housing and Residence Life, Caneris Hall and Stiles Hall are great options for all returning students. For second-year Dragons who opt in to the Honors Living Learning CommunityBentley Hall is another option.

Drexel's affiliated-housing properties operated by American Campus Communities — Chestnut Square, The Summit, and University Crossings — a Drexel fraternity or sorority house (invitation from the organization required), and the Philadelphia Collegiate Recovery Haven round out your on-campus housing options that are approved for the Two-Year Residency Program.

Benefits of Choosing a University-Operated Property

The following are benefits of choosing to live in Bentley Hall, Caneris Hall, or Stiles Hall which are operated by Housing and Residence Life.

  • No Cancellation Fees for Co-op and Study Abroad – Housing and Residence Life does not charge cancellation fees due to study abroad, co-op, clinical, or rotation opportunities more than 10 miles away from the University City campus.
  • Flexible Agreements – Housing and Residence Life contracts are available in one, two, three, or four terms, billed quarterly to the Drexel eBill.
  • Utilities, Cable, and Laundry Included – All University Residence Hall agreements include utilities and cable. Laundry facilities are also provided at no charge.
  • Payments via Drexel eBill – Housing and Residence Life room charges are applied directly to the student's Drexel eBill, allowing for seamless application of financial aid. For financial aid purposes, this is considered "on-campus" housing on the FAFSA.
