Campus information

Drexel University operates three campuses in Philadelphia. Our University City Main Campus is home to most of Drexel's facilities, including the Main Building (main administrative center), our Daskalakis Athletic Center and Recreation Center, student residence halls, W.W. Hagerty library, and most of the University's academic buildings.  Drexel's College of Nursing and Health Professions and Dornsife School of Public Health are located at our Center City Campus, which also houses a library, bookstore, and residence hall.  Finally, the Queen Lane Campus is home to the Drexel University College of Medicine. A bus shuttle system connects all three campuses such that students, faculty, and professional staff can travel freely between them.

Drexel University's lively urban campus is located in one of America's most exciting cities — Philadelphia. In a world-class city for business, art, and education, Philadelphia's skyscrapers are coupled with a blend of distinct and culturally diverse neighborhoods, creating a unique metropolitan yet intimate urban experience.

Surrounded by tree-lined residential blocks just minutes away from Philadelphia's downtown Center City district, Drexel makes its home in the neighborhood of University City. Comprised of five additional universities and dotted by coffee shops, restaurants, shops, and farmers markets, University City is just one of the many reasons Philadelphia makes an ideal place for students to live, play, and learn.


Living on campus is a big part of the college experience. Each of Drexel's residence halls has its own distinctive features and amenities, but all of them offer common recreation and study lounges, kitchens, and laundry facilities. Individual rooms are equipped to provide personal telephone service, cable television, and Internet access. The residence halls and floors organize regular events, activities, and study sessions with assistance from the professional residential staff and resident assistants living in each hall. Freshmen who do not live with a parent or guardian are required to reside on campus. Sophomore students are required to live in University housing, University-approved housing, or University-affiliated housing.

Each of Drexel’s nine residence halls has its own distinctive features, including different room layouts and amenities. Drexel's residence halls include: Caneris Hall, Kelly Hall, Millennium Hall, Myers Hall, North Hall, Race Hall, Towers Hall, and Van Resselaer Hall. 

Drexel also offers residential learning communities, which can enhance your academic experience at Drexel by connecting you with other students in your academic college or special interest group. These learning communities make it easier to meet people and form study groups or work on projects. Each community is assigned to a specific area in a residence hall with a central common area, and organizes its own social and academic activities. Past learning communities have included: Business, Computing and Informatics, Engineering, Entrepreneurship, Honors, Liberty Scholars, Media Arts & Design, and Nursing and Health Professions.
