Wendel, Tipple, and Townhouses


Grad/Theo/CUE students live on campus year round. Wendel and Tipple house singles, couples, and families. Thus, community courtesy is paramount with quiet hours beginning at 9:00 p.m. and ending at 7:00 a.m. Sunday through Thursday and from 9:00 p.m. until 9:00 a.m. Friday – Saturday.  The Townhouses are 3 to 4 bedrooms with kitchen and bathroom available for single students.

Resident’s may reserve Tipple Lounge for small gatherings and children’s birthday parties. Otherwise the lounge is available for all residents to use for study or watching television. To reserve the lounge go to Lounge Requests. There is also a study lounge in the basement of Wendel.

Residence Life and University Policies

Please refer to Daniel’s Dictionary for any policy questions.


Drew University provides a limited amount of housing for graduate and theological students in four different facilities; Townhouse, Eberhardt, Tipple Hall, and Wendel Hall. Housing is available for single students and students with spouses, domestic partners and/or dependent children under 18 years of age. However, since housing is limited, it is not guaranteed. The University will make every effort to satisfy the needs of each applicant within the bounds of our policies, but reserves the right to make all final decisions regarding housing assignments.

The following qualifications, rules and regulations apply to residents in all Graduate and 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 (Graduate or Theological program) or maintenance and matriculation are required to classify a student as full-time for the academic year.

Housing Deposit

A housing deposit of $250 must be submitted in order to secure housing and receive a housing assignment.  The deposit is non-refundable after July 1 for the fall semester and December 1 for the spring semester.
