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? 

Applications are currently being accepted and the Priority Period begins February 13, 2021. The first round of Lease Agreements will be sent to applicants as early as February 13, 2021.

When should I expect to receive my Lease Agreement? 

The leasing process will be done electronically and your student will be able to complete their Lease Agreement from home or on-the-go! Lease agreements will be sent as early as February 13, 2021. If they apply after February 13, 2021 leases will be sent immediately upon receipt of the application.

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? 

If your student does not have a floor plan preference and does not have requested roommates, the Flex Floor Plan option is for them! When they choose this option they 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. All floor plans are eligible for the Flex Floor Plan program for Fall 2021. By signing for a Flex Floor Plan, they will not only receive a monthly rental discount but also have the potential of being assigned to a higher-priced floor plan, since all of the Flex Floor Plans will be offered to them at the same low rate. Note that if they opt for a Flex Floor Plan, their floor plan and room assignment will not be determined until September 2021. Have additional questions about our Flex Floor Plan program? Give us a call so we can talk through whether or not this is a good option for you. We will extend our hours February 11th - 14th until 8pm to accommodate higher call and tour volume.

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

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

When can I apply? 

We encourage your student to apply to the community they 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 February 13, 2021. Accommodations are limited and will be leased on a first-come, first-served basis.
