On-Campus Housing Options

Find a Home That Meets Your Needs

With approximately 4,000 students, the residential community at Drexel University is composed of several housing options for first-year, transfer, returning, and graduate students. These options include traditional, hybrid, or suite-style living and all provide mailboxes for each student, free laundry, and communal spaces for entertaining guests. Plus, all Drexel and Drexel-affiliated housing options offer flexible co-op agreement options.

First-Year Housing at Drexel

Drexel offers multiple unique housing options for first-year students to satisfy the 2-Year Residency Program requirements that cater to individual needs and lifestyles. First-year students may choose from Bentley Hall, Caneris Hall, Kelly HallMillennium Hall, North Hall, Race Street Residences, Towers Hall, or Van Rensselaer.

Upper-class and Transfer Housing Options

Upper-class and transfer students are not required to live on campus; however, many choose to live in a Drexel Residence Hall for its convenience and proximity to campus. 

Caneris Hall (University City Campus) and Stiles Hall (Center City Campus) are two housing options for returning upper-class and transfer students. In addition, Bentley Hall is available to upper-class students who are accepted into the Living Learning Community. And, by invitation from the organization, a Drexel fraternity or sorority house is another housing option. Those who want to live in a Drexel residence hall or fraternity/sorority house will be considered on a rolling basis as space allows; current students and confirmed transfer students may apply in DrexelOne (the Campus+Community tab) any time after the application opens in February.

Additionally, there are three Drexel-affiliated residential properties on campus, managed by American Campus Communities, which many upper-class and transfer students enjoy living. Students seeking off-campus housing options may find the Off-Campus Housing Website to be a valuable resource. 

Graduate Housing

Graduate students live on the Center City Campus in Stiles Hall, where residents enjoys the privacy of their own single bedroom and share a common room, kitchen, and bathroom with one or two roommates.

Drexel-Affiliated Housing

Chestnut Square, The Summit, and University Crossings are Drexel's affiliated-housing properties operated by American Campus Communities (ACC). Leasing with ACC provides independent living options for our upper-class students.
