First Year Housing Application Frequently Asked Questions
How do I apply for housing?
Can I visit to see the different resident halls?
The Admissions tour includes a visit to a sample room as well a walk through the residential section of campus. University Housing does not conduct private tours. Virtual 360° tours of our halls are on each residence halls’ webpage.
Which residence hall should I live in?
All of our residence halls are great places to live! Each year brings new residents who create a unique living community. Each building, however, has its own distinct physical style and features. Explore all the different halls here on our site.
Can my friend and I live together?
Of course! During the step titled “Preferred Roommate Selection” of your application you will be able to list a preferred roommate. You will need the person's full name and Drexel User ID (usually initials followed by 2 to 4 numbers). You will find out your user ID when you pick up your Drexel email account. Your preferred roommate will also need to list you on his or her application. Both students should submit their housing application and deposit no later than the June 15, 2011 priority consideration deadline so that roommate preferences can be honored. Please note that students who opt are selected for a College Learning Community will be assigned a roommate who is also participating in the same College Learning Community (and may not be placed with a preferred roommate if he or she is not also participating in the same community).
How do you match up roommates?
During the “Preferred Roommate Selection” part of your application will ask you a few questions about some of your personal habits (sleeping, studying, cleaning, etc.). We then do our best to pair you up with someone with similar habits.
Can I change my application after completing it?
Certain pages of the MyHousing Application will close earlier than others. The close date is listed at the bottom of the specific page. All applications will lock on July 1 at 11: 59 p.m. for processing.
When do I find out where I'll be living?
Freshmen assignments will be available in MyHousing in mid-August.
What if I have a medical condition that requires certain accommodations?
Drexel University ensures people with disabilities will have an equal opportunity to participate in its programs and activities. For more information on requesting accommodations, please visit the Office of Disability Service's website
. Students requesting accommodations must submit a housing application, contact the Office of Disability Resources, and complete all appropriate paperwork with that office by May 15th.
