Keeping Our Community Safe
The health and safety of our community is our top priority. As of December 22, 2020, based on new city and state guidance, the University will be postponing the move-in to campus housing from January 4. Along with this change, the University will postpone the start of face-to-face instruction. Thus, remote instruction will begin as planned on January 11, student move-in days will start January 16 and in-person classes will begin January 25.
- Wear a face mask
- Maintain distance (at least 6 feet apart)
- Wash your hands frequently
- Review the Dragon Pledge
- Complete the online Drexel Health Checker one to two hours (and no more than 24 hours) prior to your arrival to campus.
It’s everyone’s responsibility to do their part to keep the Drexel community safe during the COVID-19 pandemic. If you see any activity or suspect any behavior that violates the University’s COVID-19 Code of Conduct, make an online report.
Students who feel ill or who are certain they have been exposed to COVID-19 should contact the Student Health Center right away by phone (215.220.4700) or through the Drexel Health Tracker App.
