Why Live on Campus?


Year after year, Drury's freshmen-to-sophomore and sophomore-to-junior retention rates are higher for residents than commuters.

Studies show that students who live in a residence hall are more likely to:

  • Persist to graduation
  • Have greater openness to diversity and challenge, which is important for navigating the workforce
  • Get more involved in campus activities, which can lead to more leadership positions and deeper connections to faculty and staff

It's convenient!

  • Residence hall rooms are fully-furnished and include a mini-fridge and microwave
  • Cable TV service, Internet, wireless printing, utilities, trash/recycling, laundry and meals are included
  • Housing and meal fees go on the student bill, which can be covered with student grants, scholarships and loans
  • One refundable deposit, one time, for all 3 years in student housing
