Our Residential Communities
At Drexel, we have many fantastic opportunities for residential living. The offices of Housing and Residence Life, Student Conduct and University Housing work together to provide a safe and welcoming environment for students to live and engage with their peers in meaningful ways. Below are some of our various residential living experiences available to students.
Living Learning Communities
Living Learning Communities (LLCs) integrate academics into the residential experience of participating students by extending their learning beyond the realms of the classroom. LLC residents continue to cite their ability to develop both socially and academically as a key benefit of their learning community experience. Within these residence halls, faculty members participate in regular dinners in addition to hosting lectures and small discussion groups. These activities and events allow Drexel's residential students to engage with faculty and staff outside of the classroom, seamlessly connecting all aspects of their Drexel collegiate experience. Academic engagement also remains at the forefront of each residential community, as Housing and Residence Life integrates academics and faculty involvement into all residential populations.
Learn more about Living Learning Communities and then look for additional information in your housing portal when you sign up for University Housing.
First-year residence halls are buildings where new students find their place at Drexel. Through intentional events such as building-wide dinners and floor trips into the city, first-year students begin to feel connected to the campus and city of Philadelphia.

Upper Class Experience
Upper class residential communities assist students as they transition into co-op and a more demanding academic schedule, providing students with the skills necessary to not only find success at Drexel but also in the years beyond college.
