Our residential properties consists of two apartment complexes and 11 houses for faculty and staff housing. The two apartment complexes are at Copper Beech and #15 Madison Avenue. Most units are 2 bedroom. The apartments are rented to Drew University faculty and staff. The units are not furnished and do not include utilities.
Within the Borough of Madison and neighboring towns like Florham Park, Chatham, Summit and Morristown, faculty and staff can find suitable housing. The office of Housing, Conferences and Hospitality maintains an Off-Campus Housing Book with listings of apartment complexes in the area and contains various listings that individuals ask us to post for our Drew community. Depending on family size and income, you may be eligible for assistance from Madison Housing Authority, 15 Chateau Thierry Avenue, Madison, NJ 07940 (973) 377-0258. We also suggest that you visit the classified listings in the local papers and online media. Click on the link to take you directly to their online sites.
Information is subject to change without notice.
Resident’s must notify the Residential Properties Office if they plan to be absent from the apartment for more than one week.
Resident’s are not permitted to sublet their apartments and must inquire with Residential Properties if interested in having house sitters stay in their unit during short periods of absence. These inquiries will be forwarded to and are subject to approval from the Residential Properties Office. No house sitters will be permitted without written consent.
During the winter months, heating systems should not be turned off but rather set between 55 and 60 degrees during a resident’s absence. A 55-60 degree setting will help prevent pipes from freezing and breaking, which would cause significant damage and inconvenience.
All Copper Beech units are equipped with a fireplace in the living room area. Fireplace use is at the discretion and risk of the resident and any damage caused to the unit, especially the carpet area in front of the fireplace is the sole responsibility of the renter.
Following are fireplace safety tips from the U.S. Fire Administration.
NJ State Fire Code, adopted by Borough of Madison at town ordinance level. Section F-402.4 Portable LP Gas Cooking Equipment: Portable LP-gas cooking equipment such as barbecue grills shall not be stored or used:
For safety, as well as courtesy to neighbors, personal outdoor belongings should be stowed away each night. This includes toys, bicycles, play structures, furniture, sports equipment/devices, and wading pools. Such items should not be left in common areas nor in any exterior portion of a unit without consent of the Residential Properties Office. Moreover, no occupant should build or temporarily use any item (e.g. signs, grill, fence, trellis, canopy, awning, garden ornament, or radio or tv antenna) in the common areas without consent.
With permission, residents may establish and maintain flower beds in the front and along the sides of each building unit. Such garden areas need to be not more than six feet deep and clearly defined by a border (for example, one of stones), that clearly marks the area for the grounds crew. Such plantings must not interfere with the care and maintenance of trees or air conditioning units. The resident must notify the Residential Properties Office in advance if planning to maintain their own dooryard garden. If proper notification isn’t given, Drew University can not be held responsible for how the grounds crew does or does not maintain the area.
