University Affiliated Housing
First Year (freshman) students are not eligible to live in University-Affiliated housing.
University-Affiliated housing refers to housing facilities who serve Drexel University students and which were developed under a direct agreement between Drexel University and a third-party owner or manager. Drexel University does not endorse any one property over another. Drexel University is not obligated to conduct physical inspections of University-Affiliated properties, nor is it obligated to independently review documents or records associated with such properties, for purposes of verification of the information contained in the granting of University-Affiliated housing status.
Second Year (sophomore) students who choose to live in University-Affiliated housing must contract with the property manager or owner directly and will be responsible for all applicable expenses, including but not limited to: housing deposits, damage fees, and cancellation fees. All expenses are paid directly to the property manager or owner by the student. Drexel University will not be a party to the individual lease agreement between the student and the property manager/ owner and will in no way be required to perform any obligations under such agreement on the part of the student or the property manager/owner, or enforce any individual agreement on behalf of the student or the property manager/ owner.
Second Year (sophomores) students are required to inform Drexel University of their housing location for academic year 2013/14 through the MyHousing portal via DrexelOne starting January 14, 2013 but no later than March 31, 2013.
The following housing options are available to Second Year Students as University-Affiliated housing for 2013/2014. Drexel University does not specifically endorse any one University-Affiliated or University-Approved facility or property. All applicable expenses are paid directly to the property manager or owner by the student in accordance with the terms of the lease agreement.
