How to Apply
2013-2014 - Returning Students University Housing Process
Applying for Housing is a 3-Step Process:
In accordance with the Drexel University 2-Year Residency Program, all rising sophomores (those students who were freshmen during the Fall 2012 academic term) are required to live in University Housing, University-Approved Housing or University-Affiliated Housing.
Rising sophomores were guaranteed housing if they submitted a Housing Deposit and a Housing Application by Thursday, January 31, 2013. However, those rising sophomores students who have missed this deadline are still required to live in University-Approved Housing or University-Affiliated Housing.
Optional: Select your preferred roommate.
There are several search functions to facilitate how you can search for a roommate:
1. Add a known roommate: Use your friend’s user ID (for example ABC123) and/or their last name to search for them.
2. Browse for roommates: Select this option to search for roommates based on the roommate profile criteria.
Note that your potential roommate must also add you to their application! You will only appear in this search if you have a complete housing application.
