Rising Sophomore Priority Period FAQs

What is Drexel’s Two-Year Residency Program? 

This program was developed to provide First-Year/Freshmen and Second-Year/Sophomore students a wide range of learning and lifestyle housing options to customize their Drexel living experience. All three American Campus communities, Chestnut Square, University Crossings and The Summit at University City, satisfy Drexel’s Two-Year Residency Program for rising sophomores.  No other off-campus student housing community qualifies. Please click below to be directed to Drexel’s housing website to learn more!
 

When does the Sophomore Priority Period begin? 

The Priority Period begins November 2, 2019. The first round of Lease Agreements will be sent to applicants on Saturday, November 2, 2019 with additional rounds following each weekend, ending on Sunday, November 17, 2019.
 

When should I expect to receive my Lease Agreement? 

The leasing process will be done electronically and you will be able to complete your Lease Agreement from home or on the go! Lease Agreements will be sent based on floor plan availability and application status.  You will receive an email 24-hours in advance informing you to expect your electronic Lease Agreement the following day.

What if I am going on Co-op? 

All Drexel second year students qualify for ZERO cancellation fees when they receive a Co-op or study abroad outside a ten-mile radius of Drexel’s main campus.
 

What are Flex Floor Plans? 

Flex Floor Plans are brand new for Fall 2020! If you do not have a floor plan preference and do not have requested roommates, the Flex Floor Plan option is for you! When you choose this option you will not be signing for a specific floor plan, but rather electing to be placed in any of the floor plans with a Flex designation, based on availability. By signing for a Flex Floor Plan, you will not only receive a monthly rental discount, but you also have the potential of being assigned to a higher priced floor plan, since all of the Flex Floor Plans will be offered to you at the same low rate. Note that if you opt for a Flex Floor Plan, you floor plan and room assignment will not be determined until September 2020.

What if the floor plan I applied for is sold out?

If the floor plan you applied for sells out before you return your signed Lease Agreement, you will receive an email stating such. We will then send you a revised Lease Agreement for the second or third choice floor plan type chosen on your application – pending availability in those floor plan types. 
 

When can I apply? 

We encourage you to apply to the community you wish to live at now, in order to ensure all information required to send an electronic Lease Agreement is obtained prior to the leasing period starting on November 2, 2019. Click here to apply today.

Accommodations are limited and will be leased on a first-come, first-served basis. The acceptance of an application does not ensure an accommodation. An accommodation is reserved only upon execution of the lease agreement by all parties. 
 

How do I ensure I get my requested roommates?

Roommate assignments are offered as a convenience to you, and Manager assumes no liability for any claims relating in any way to roommate assignments. Manager makes no representations, guarantees or warranties of any type regarding the roommate assignment process, or any particular person who is assigned as your roommate. Manager will not make room assignments based on Race, Color, Religion, National Origin, Disability, Gender, Familial Status or Sexual Orientation in accordance with the Fair Housing Act. 


Who do I contact with additional questions?

We know the school year can be busy, so beginning November 2, 2019, our offices will have extended hours each weekend, extending our closing time until 8pm on Saturday and Sunday. Please give us a call with any questions at 215.243.3555 or email us at ChestnutSquare@AmericanCampus.com. Please note that we will be experiencing higher than normal call volumes at this time.
