Internet & Cable Service

All students have access to the Internet via WiFi or network jack and expanded basic cable television either in their bedroom or in their apartment living room.

If residents want access to our services they are responsible for providing Ethernet cords or wireless cards and cable cords or splitters. For problems with Internet service, please contact the Technology Services Help Desk at 417-873-7300 or e-mail help@drury.edu.

Expanded basic cable service is provided; however if your TV was manufactured before March 2007, you will need a QAM tuner to get digital cable. If you prefer to rent an adapter rather than purchase a digital adapter, you can visit Mediacom (Drury’s cable provider) at 1533 S. Enterprise. Digital adapters through the cable provider are free until January 2013, then renters will be charged .99 a month. If you go to Mediacom to get a digital adapter, be sure to bring your driver’s license and know your Drury address. For cable television problems, contact the Housing Office at 417-873-7654 or e-mail housing@drury.edu. Be specific with the problem you are having (i.e. no signal, pixelation, etc).

Channel listings are available on the cable directory. If you have an older TV with the digital adapter, refer to the lists at the top for Local Plus and Local Family options. If you have a digital TV, then scroll to the bottom and see the Digital-Ready Local Plus and Family options.
