2018-19 Housing Sign-Ups for Returning Students
The 2018-19 housing contract will be available in MyDrury in early February. An email will go out to all students when it is live.
Don’t forget, Drury University has a housing policy that requires most full-time day school students to live on campus.
Returning student assignments are based upon special application processes (theme communities), pin number (fraternities), or earned credit hours (non-theme apartments/houses and upperclassman residence hall suites).
Housing Assignment Considerations
Full-time day school students are eligible to reside in on-campus apartments/houses and fraternity houses if they graduated from high school at least one full year prior to the anticipated move-in date. There is not a minimum credit-hour requirement to apply for apartments or houses.
Our campus apartments & residence halls offer male- and female-only options, as well as gender-inclusive options. Midtown houses are gender-inclusive. In other locations on campus, if a student marks “male” or “female” on their housing contract, they will be assigned based on that gender, unless they mark “gender-inclusive housing” as their preference. When making residence hall, room and roommate assignments, the university does not discriminate based upon race, religion, sexual orientation, disability, nationality, or culture.
Process for Theme Housing Students will have to apply for the specific theme houses for which they are interested. Some of those communities require an individual application, while some have a group application or presentation. Academic-theme applications are due February 12, 2018 (Art, Foreign Language, Honors, Humanities). Summit Park Leadership Community applications are due at noon on February 23, 2018.
Process for Fraternity Houses All fraternity chapters require that members live in their house for a set number of semesters. After residents submit their housing contract in MyDrury, each chapter will have a room sign-up meeting in March. The deadline to submit a housing contract to live in a fraternity house is 4 p.m. Friday, March 1, 2018.
Process for Non-Theme Housing Apartments & Houses Students should choose their own roommates and fill out online Housing Selection forms for each unit type in which they are interested, unless they are applying for specialty housing (fraternity houses, theme housing). The deadline to submit housing selection forms for 1-, 2-, and 3-person units & turn in a housing contract is 4 p.m. on March 2, 2018. The deadline to submit a housing selection form & contract for 4-person units is 4 p.m. on March 23, 2018. For non-themed apartments/houses, the Housing office will confirm each group’s earned credit hours and rank the roommate groups from most earned hours to least earned hours. Please note that 1224, 1302 N Summit and 1316 N Benton are only available to students who have clear conduct records.
Groups then attend their designated housing sign-up night. At the sign-up nights, a large campus map will be posted so that students can easily see which units are available. Groups whose members submitted selection forms and a contract will be called from most earned credit hours to least earned credit hours to select their specific unit from the map, until all units are given away. Sign-up night for 1-3-person housing is at 8 p.m. on March 8, 2018 in the FSC ballroom. Sign-up night for 4-person units is March 29, 2018 in the FSC ballroom. Groups with 175+ earned hours arrive at 7 p.m. Groups with 174.9 or less hours arrive at 8:30 p.m. Students who are moving to campus for the first time should also bring a $200 check made out to Drury University or pre-pay the deposit online.
