 What We Do

Residence Life provides a residential experience in which students can “Live, Act, and Learn,” via quality programs and services in the residence halls.  We promote residential student success by being an extension of the classroom.  Our community living encourages critical thinking, development of leadership skills, and exploration of self.  We provide students with an inclusive, healthy and welcoming home.  We encourage our residents to positively connect to Drew University and become global citizens.

Community Standards promotes the University’s educational goals of “Live, Act, and Learn” by encouraging responsible community conduct both inside and outside the classroom. Community Standards helps everyone reflect on the bearing of choices made.

Residence Life and Community Standards staff are committed to working with you! You will be recognized and valued through our interactions, services, activities and programs, and through our policy and procedures. We will engage residents in purposeful activities and programs that promote student development and foster student learning. We are committed to making your time at Drew memorable.

The Office of Residence Life is proud to be a member of the division of Campus Life and Student Affairs.  We work closely with our affiliate offices, especially Housing, Conferences, and Hospitality, which handles all student housing operations including: room requests, physical space, furniture, room changes, and room selection.

The Office of Residence Life and Community Standards is open during the fall and spring semesters from Monday to Friday from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m.
