  • Drew University Resident Life
  • Preface

    From Sycamore Cottage's modest accommodations for eight students in 1867, to the variety of room styles and living environments available today, life beyond the classroom continues to be an integral part of the education afforded Drew students. Evolving from a dormitory (i.e. from the French dormir, meaning to sleep) orientation, today's residence life program works in a collaborative manner within the Division of Campus Life and Student Affairs in supporting the academic mission of the University.

    This work is realized with the provision of trained professional and paraprofessional staff members in the residential complexes that implement educational and social programs, educate residents on University policies, counsel students in distress, mediate roommate and interpersonal conflicts; confront violations of the Code of Conduct and respond to emergency situations. Utilizing a “living learning paradigm,” the Residence Life Office endeavors to engage residents in purposeful activities and programs that promote student development and foster student learning.


    The Office of Residence Life endeavors to create a purposeful, open, safe, just and celebrated living-learning environment in which all students may accomplish their personal and academic goals.

    Goals & Visions

    In order to best achieve our mission, we believe it is imperative that the Office of Residence Life complete the following:

    • Communicate the University’s goals, expectations, and mission
    • Develop programs of an educational, social or community-service nature
    • Promote mutual respect and understanding in a diverse and open community
    • Mediate and resolve conflicts
    • Forge alliances with other campus departments
    • Refer students to other CLSA offices when appropriate
    • Act as peer counselors and educators
    • Advise students about other University resources (such as clubs, organizations and academic offices)
    • Uphold community standards
    • Act as a liaison between students and other University offices
    • Advocate for student concerns
