Buildings: New Student Housing from the 2007 Master Plan

The Master Plan for Drexel University from 2012 to the Sesquicentennial in 2041, Drexel@150, will focus on existing buildings to further four goals: optimize the use of real estate resources, create a unique identity for the campus, connect Drexel to the communities around the campus, and achieve these goals sustainably. 

The 2007 Master Plan featured eleven specific projects, of which one was titled “Natrona Student Housing,” intended to house 500 resident students, and planned as the last of a series of three residence halls constructed in consultation with the community.  While there was agreement on the siting of Race Street and Millennium Halls, and both projects were built, neither the Natrona title nor location was presented to or supported by the community.
