Temporary housing in a residence hall can be made available to you during this time for a fee of $153 for room and board starting at 10 am January 25, 2018 and ending at 1 pm on January 27, 2018.

For individuals requesting this temporary housing, this fee would be assessed directly to your student account. (Most room placements will be in double occupancy rooms with a roommate.)

If interested in this housing option, please email by December 11, 2017 and place in the subject line “Spring Orientation Student early arrival housing request.” Within the text of your email, please provide your name and your Drake ID number along with your request for temporary housing.

Once your request has been confirmed, you will receive an email with your housing assignment and check in information.  Individuals will need to have a photo ID for check in.

Individuals who are housed in temporary housing during Spring Orientation, would need to remove their personal belongings and return the room key of the temporary room no later than 1 pm on January 27, 2018 and relocate to their academic year housing placement.   Individuals who do not check out and return the room key by the designated time may incur additional fees, which may include but are not limited to an improper check out fee of $25 and a $50 lock change fee being assessed to their student account.
