Affiliated Housing

For Second-Year Students and Beyond

Returning students (second-year and following) are encouraged to consider the flexibility and independent living that Drexel-Affiliated Housing options offer.

What Is Affiliated Housing?

Affiliated housing refers to housing facilities that serve Drexel University students and were developed under a direct agreement between Drexel and a third-party owner or manager. Unlike living in on-campus residence halls, you contract directly with affiliated housing by signing a lease. Additionally, your rental rate varies both by unit and the number of roommates living on the property, and this is considered "off-campus" housing on the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA).

What Are My Options?

Drexel partners with one of the nation's largest developers of student housing communities — American Campus Communities (ACC). ACC owns, manages, and operates Chestnut Square, The Summit, and University Crossings for Drexel students. Please note that Drexel University does not endorse any one property over another.
