Drew University provides a limited amount of housing for graduate and theological students in four different facilities: Townhouse, Wendel Hall, Tipple Hall and Eberhardt.
Housing is limited and is not guaranteed.
Students may apply for housing according to the policies below and based upon their need. Housing is available for single students and students with spouses, domestic partners and/or dependent children under 18 years of age. The University will make every effort to satisfy the need of each applicant within the policies, but reserves the right to make final decisions regarding housing assignments.
Do not plan to arrive on campus without a confirmed housing assignment!
The following qualifications, rules and regulations apply to residents in all Graduateand Theological student housing. Housing is available for:
- Students who have officially accepted admission into the University;
- Students who have paid an enrollment deposit and housing deposit;
- Only full-time, degree-seeking students of the University. A minimum of nine (9) credits per semester or maintenance and matriculation are required to classify a student as full-time for the academic year.
Rules and Responsibilities
All residents agree to assume responsibility for the facility to which they are assigned and agree to abide by the rules and regulations of the University as described in the Housing Occupancy Agreement. Failure to comply with these rules and the University’s policies as stated in the student handbook is grounds for termination of the Housing Occupancy Agreement.
The University shall not be liable for damage or loss to any resident’s personal property from any cause whatsoever. The University does not carry insurance on the personal property of students; therefore, residents are strongly advised to seek renters’ insurance for their belongings.
Housing is a privilege that the University offers to its students. In the case of a separation or divorce, the University will continue to offer housing to the student only. However, as the student’s family size changes, he or she may no longer be eligible for their assigned unit and the University reserves the right to relocate the student to an appropriately-sized unit.
Structural modification of the residence facility is not permitted.
No pets, except non-meat-eating fish, are permitted in University residence facilities.
The University reserves the right to make reassignments and adjustments in housing.
The University reserves the right to enter rooms or buildings without a search warrant
- For maintenance, inspection or repair purposes;
- To maintain safety and security, and
- For disciplinary enforcement purposes.
Solicitation is forbidden.
A housing deposit of $250 (non-refundable after July 1 for the fall semester and December 1 for the spring semester) must be submitted along with the Housing Application to the address listed above.
Housing assignments are made in conjunction with the Dean’s Office of the appropriate school. Factors such as scholarship, date the application is received, degree program and availability of space are considered in assigning incoming students.
You will be notified by the Housing Office if space is available to meet your needs. Housing is not guaranteed. Housing is assigned to families only if appropriatelysized housing units are available. Only the student and his/her immediate family, that is, spouse or domestic partner and dependent children 18 years of age and under, are permitted to live in University housing. All family housing units are unfurnished.
If your housing need changes, contact the Housing Office as soon as possible.
If you defer admission or withdraw this housing application, then you must reapply to be considered for subsequent semesters.
