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.

When does the Sophomore Priority Period begin? 

The Priority Period begins January 18th. The first round of Lease Agreements will be sent to applicants on Friday, January 18th with additional rounds following daily and ending on Friday, January 25th.

When should I expect to receive my Lease Agreement? 

The leasing process will be electronic 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. Below is the daily floor plan schedule outlining the date on which you should expect your Lease Agreement.

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 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 January 18th. Click here to apply today and click here to review the Lease Agreement prior to signing. The password to access and view the Lease Agreement is Drexel.

Who do I contact with additional questions?

We know the start of the new term can be busy, so our offices will have extended hours through 8 pm, January 18th to January 25th. 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.
