Housing Policy Update
Drury University has updated its housing policy to enhance accessibility and affordability for students.
Beginning Fall 2016, costs for most on-campus residences will be either reduced or frozen in price for the 2016-17 academic year. Drury will continue to award residential grants to incoming students, based on need, to help offset the costs of room and board.
Additionally, students whose primary family residence is within 30 miles of the campus may live at home with a parent.

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