Drew Arrangements with Area Hotels and Facilities
Drew University has entered into an agreement with a local extended stay hotel, Simply Sonesta Suites in Morris Plans, NJ, which is located about 15 minutes away from Madison. They offer studio suites at a discounted student rate (roughly 10% off their regular price). If you stay for 90 consecutive nights, you will become tax exempt and will receive all of the taxes back.. The room features a queen sized bed, recliner, large work desk, and a full kitchen with full-sized fridge, dishwasher, microwave, and 2 burner cooktop. To explore pricing and options for staying at this off-campus location, you will need to contact the reservation department at 1-800-SONESTA (1-800-766-3782) and request the Drew University rate at time of booking to ensure that proper pricing is provided to you. Please note, Drew does not provide transportation to and from the hotel.
Emergencies and Food Insecurity
Drew Theological School recognizes that Drew students sometimes face housing emergencies and/or food insecurity during their time at Theo. If you find that you are in a crisis situation, please contact Beth Babcock (bbabcock@drew.edu) in the Dean’s Office.

In addition, Drew University supports a Food Pantry that serves all Drew students and community members by providing food and toiletries. Students are asked to complete the Pickup forms by Wednesdays at 5:00 pm, and then students can pick up their items on Thursdays from 12:30-1:30 pm in the downstairs café of Seminary Hall.
