8 am -12 pm
LeBow students are invited to move-in to the residence halls one day early, free of charge! You will need to sign up for your move-in time on September 17th through Drexel University Housing.
During move-in on September 17th, faculty and staff from LeBow will be available to greet you. In addition, your Peer Leaders will be visiting students in the residence hall to introduce themselves while you move in.
In late August, students will receive an email from University Housing to your Drexel email account with detailed instructions about the move-in process and signing up for your move-in time. At that time, you will be able to sign up for an early move-in time on September 17 between 8:00 a.m. and 12:00 p.m. Please follow the instructions provided in that email to sign up for a move-in time in MyHousing accessible via DrexelOne. LeBow College of Business will cover your early move-in fee for Wednesday, September 17. However, if you choose to move-in prior Wednesday, September 17, additional early move-in fees may be charged to your student eBill.
