For individuals who request and are granted this temporary housing, this fee would be assessed directly to your student account.

If interested in this housing option, please email by December 10, 2018 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.
