Before You Arrive

Check Your Drexel Email

Start checking your Drexel email now so it becomes a habit. You don’t want to miss important information from University Housing and Residential Living. We use email to send important, time sensitive housing information.

Further, your roommate will contact you via this E-Mail address.


Your assignment e-mail will contain instructions on how to obtain roommate contact information and so we encourage you to contact your roommate prior to arriving.

Personal Insurance

As explained in our Housing Agreement, Drexel University is not liable for damage or loss of your personal belongings. We do highly recommend that you get coverage under your parent or guardians’ home owner/renter’s insurance policy. If unable to do so, information is available from National Student Services, Inc.

Move In Times for Incoming Freshmen

Move in times for incoming freshmen students will be emailed to their Drexel email account in late August.
