The Grad/Theo Complex is unique to Drew University. These on-campus apartments are available for married couples, families and single students. Each Residence Hall also has a designated section for the College of Liberal Arts students, to further bridge the gap between the three schools. Moreover, Tipple Hall Lounge is the hub of student gatherings due to its large lounge area complete with fireplace and kitchen.
Living on campus as a graduate or theological student means you will live in “apartment-style housing.” It is important to recognize that this style of housing does not provide much storage. The space you will have will be crowded no matter how simply you live or how organized you are. See the what to bring section. Please consider the following tips:
Decide what is most important to you and bring those things with you.
Invest in some organizational units. Bookshelves or stackable crates help find a home for papers and school work.
Remember that storage space on campus is limited and not guaranteed. It is understandable that students will have a need to store some of their belongings the longer they live on campus and acquire new things, but the storage space available doesn’t change.
Family housing units have the major kitchen appliances including an oven-range and refrigerator but these apartments are otherwise unfurnished. Residents can provide their own window air conditioner and have Facilities install the unit. There is a $75 installation/utility charge.
Below is a picture of the single room that is furnished with an extra-long twin bed, a dresser, desk and desk chair. The other photo depicts a typical kitchen, with stove, refrigerator, kitchen sink and some cupboard space. Please be aware this is an example of but may not be specific to your apartment.
In Tipple, the laundry room is located in the basement between section B and C. Laundry Machines are free to use and do not require payment. If there is a problem with the machines, please contact Facilities, at 973-408-3015, immediately with a description of the problem. Personal washers and dryers are prohibited in private living areas and storage areas
