Facilities & Maintenance

To submit maintenance, grounds, pest control or custodial work requests, please visit our Facilities webpage and click ‘Facilities Services Work Request.’  Students may also go into MyDrury and select “Facilities Service Work Request” from the left-hand menu.  Students can track the progress of their maintenance, grounds, pest control and custodial work orders through this system.

Technology work requests can be submitted to Drury’s Help Desk by emailing helpdeskticket@drury.edu. Residential students experiencing issues with the cable television service can find helpful information on the Internet & Cable Service page.

Facilities office hours are Monday – Friday, 7:00 a.m. – 5:30 p.m. For any urgent maintenance requests outside of our regular office hours, please contact the Safety & Security office at 417-873-7911 or your on-call Residence Life staff member. Feel free to call 417-873-7219 with any questions or email us at facilities@drury.edu.

Internet & Cable Service

All residents will have access to the Internet via WiFi. Cable TV service is available in some housing options (see below for details).

If residents want access to our services they are responsible for providing computers with wireless cards (for internet) and TVs with a QAM tuner and co-axial cords (for cable service). Students may purchase TVs without QAM tuners, but they will need to rent or purchase a special digital adapter (details below). The Drury bookstore now sells QAM tuners.  

A majority of campus housing has cable TV services and ResNet Internet provided by a company called Apogee. However, some of the Midtown houses have Internet provided by a local residential provider, but managed by the Drury Help Desk (see below for addresses). Drury’s Help Desk is open M-F 8 a.m. – 5 p.m. and can be reached at 417-873-7300 or helpdeskticket@drury.edu.   

Apogee cable & ResNet locations provide each resident with the option to connect up to 7 devices to the Internet. At move-in, students in Apogee locations will need to set up a MyResNet account with Apogee and then add their devices. In order to access the digital cable TV service, make sure your TV has the appropriate QAM tuner. After connecting your TV to the wall with a co-axial cable, run an automatic channel search. Technical support for Apogee locations is available 24/7, 365 days a year.

Renter's Insurance for Students

Drury University strongly recommends renters insurance for all students.  Renters insurance provides valuable protection if your personal belongings are stolen or damaged, including laptops, computers, smartphones, bicycles, game consoles, textbooks, clothing and other personal items. If your laptop or other personal belongings are stolen, you are responsible for replacing them, not the University.  With a renter’s insurance plan any personal items that are stolen or damaged can be replaced at a full cost subject to a much smaller deductible than your parent’s homeowners insurance plan. Renters insurance deductibles may be as low as $50 compared to a homeowner deductible, which may be $1,000 or more.  Renters insurance may also protect you financially for unintentional damage to your university housing or bodily injury for which you are liable.

As a resident on campus (or a renter off campus), we strongly advise that you consider enrolling in a renters insurance program. One company that specializes in student renter’s insurance with low deductibles is National Student Services, INC. Visit the site or stop by FSC 120 for more information.
