FAQs: Housing Assignments & Meal Plan Changes

When will I receive my assignment?
The majority of residence hall assignments are emailed to students the first week of June, prior to Freshman First Day. We initially send the assignment to both your Drury email and your personal off-campus account. Assigning rooms is much like assembling a large puzzle while someone keeps changing out the pieces. The Housing Office makes changes daily throughout the summer and even into the fall semester. Even after you receive your initial assignment, you may be reassigned to a different room or receive a new roommate due to the constant changes. Please check your email accounts regularly for updates.

What if it's mid-June and I don’t have an assignment yet?
If you submitted your housing contract, deposit, and were accepted to Drury before May 1 (Dec 1 for spring admittance) and you did not receive a housing assignment, please call or email the Housing Office. If you finished this process after May 1 (or Dec 1 for spring admittance), your email will be sent at some point before Move-In Day. If you don't have an assignment the week before Move-In Day, contact housing@drury.edu for more information.

Where can I find details about my hall?
To read details about the facility you will be living in, visit the housing options list in the left-hand column and select your housing style. Each hall page provides a list of amenities, a general description of the hall, and a link to the virtual tour.

How can I contact my roommate?
Your roommate’s name, home phone number and email address will be in the housing assignment e-mail we send in early June (or December for spring admittance). Be sure to have a conversation with your roommate about who is bringing large items like the TV, rug or stereo.

How do I change my meal plan?
Students must make their change in writing, because a meal plan change is an alteration to the housing contract. Students may fill out a meal-change form at the Housing Office or by emailing their name, Drury ID, and new meal plan selection to housing@drury.edu. Written changes for the fall semester must be received in Housing by 5 pm on Monday, August 26, 2013. Changes for the spring semester must be received in the Housing between December 1, 2013 and 5 pm on January 27, 2014.

Commuter meal plans are available in the Housing Office, and may be purchased at any point during the academic year.

I am running out of meals.  How can my parent add money (Debit Dollars) to my account?
Parents may mail a check to Student Financial Services--include a note with the student's name, Drury ID number, and indicate that the amount should go toward Debit Dollars rather than the bill.  The check should be made out to Drury University and be a minimum of $50.  Money (Debit Dollars) can also be added online with a credit/debit card or by using your checks routing number for an ACH withdrawal.  Students can add money by going to the "Student" tab in MyDrury. Select "Pay online" and "Debit Dollars Program."  Be aware that there is a 2.75% processing fee when using a credit/debit card.
