Receive Answers To All Your Questions

Housing and Residence Life strives to make sure that every living scenario complements each student's educational journey. And no matter how long you have been a resident at Drexel, you'll probably run into questions every now and then. It's important to know where to find answers and Housing and Residence Life's Frequently Asked Questions are a great place to start.

Know Who To Turn To

As a current student living in a Drexel residence hall, there is a team of Housing and Residence Life staff members specifically dedicated to you and the other residents in your hall. This includes an Assistant Director/Resident Director (AD/RD), the Residential Desk Coordinator (RDC), Resident Assistants (RAs), Desk Assistants (DAs), and an Office Assistant (OA). In particular, your RA(s) and RD are there to answer any and all questions you find yourself asking, even if they're not directly related to housing. Think of them as your go-to people; if they don't have the answer themselves, they will be able to direct you to others that do.

Drexel Campus Dining is your resource for specific dining-related questions. And the Office of Equality and Diversity (OED) is committed to promoting, supporting, and providing resources to sustain a University environment committed to diversity, equality, fairness, inclusion, and respect — where all members of the Drexel community are valued. OED offers helpful workshops and resources as well as incident reporting, which investigates complaints of discrimination, harassment, and misconduct, including sexual assault. In case of an emergency or when you feel that you are in any kind of unsafe situation, call Public Safety at 215.895.2222.

Moving In/Out: The Term Switch

Housing and Residence Life coordinates four Move-In/Move-Out term switches per year. All residential students will receive an individual Term Switch email to their Drexel account about three weeks before the end of each term. This email outlines your current housing assignment as well as your housing assignment for the upcoming term (which could remain the same if opting for continuing your current housing assignment) and reiterates all deadlines associated with the upcoming Term Switch and Move-In/Move-Out process.

Services and Maintenance

Certain services and maintenance assistance are included in the cost of housing at Drexel; however, some services, such as damage repair are not. You should acquaint yourself with the maintenance and request process so that you can submit a timely request if you ever have one.

Policies and Forms

Housing and Residence Life works with various campus partners to develop policies that support the on-campus residential experience. This includes the Drexel 2-Year Residency Program, where all full-time first-year and second-year students whose permanent address, as stated in their official University record, is outside of a 10-mile radius of the University City Campus are required to live on campus. In addition, forms are available for you when you need them.
