Wait List

Returning Student Wait List

When a Housing Wait List is enacted, University Housing will maintain a comprehensive list of students with a completed housing application (defined as a submitted $200 housing deposit and executed Housing Application via MyHousing) who were not offered a housing assignment. University Housing maintains a Wait List for Returning students and a Wait List for Transfer students.

Returning students who applied for housing after January 31 are automatically placed on the Returning Student Wait List. Bi-weekly updates will be emailed to students with their wait list status. A $200 Housing Deposit is required for a student to be placed on the Wait List. Once on the Wait List, a student has two options:

Remain on the Wait List:

If space becomes available, the student will be contacted in number order via their Drexel University E-mail account. Upon receiving that assignment, students will have 48-hours to reject the assignment. If the student fails to respond, or rejects the assignment, the application will be cancelled and the $200 housing deposit is NOT refunded.

Remove self from the Wait List:

A student can remove themselves from the Returning Student Wait List at any time by sending an e-mail to The student will be removed from the Returning Student Wait List and the $200 housing deposit returned. This option is not available if the student has been offered a housing assignment

Transfer Student Wait List

Applications for Transfer students starting at Drexel University in the Fall 2013 academic term are now available via MyHousing, accessible in DrexelOne. Visit this page for more information on how to apply for housing. Transfer students will be notified of their housing assignment status within one week of their housing application.

Drexel University does not guarantee housing for incoming transfer students.

If the demand for Transfer housing exceeds Drexel University's capacity for Transfer students, a Transfer Student Wait List will be enacted and information will be sent via the student's Drexel University E-mail account.
