Student Organization Housing Application

Drury University > Housing & Residence Life > Housing Forms > Student Organization Housing Application

Submissions are due by February 18, 2022.

Drury’s new student organization house program for 2022-23 is designed to:

  1. Provide residents with opportunities to plan & execute events for their peers.
  2. Provide additional visibility for student organizations.
  3. Bolster connections between residents and the Housing & Residence Life office.

House Information

All houses have bedrooms with a bed/mattress, dresser, nightstand (if space permits), a desk and chair per resident. At minimum in the common area are a couch, chair, coffee table, end table, and a dining room table and chairs.

Options include 416 E. Calhoun (4-person), 1225 N. Robberson (4-person), 1316 N. Benton (3-person), and 1302 N. Benton (3-person). 517 E. Calhoun (6-person) will be available for student organizations if the current residents do not keep the house.

Application Process

All materials – online applications and supplemental materials – are due online or at the Housing office (FSC 120) by February 18, 2022.

Students are eligible to apply if they are members of a 2022-23 registered student organization, and the organization will be registered for the 2022-23 academic year. Sororities are not permitted to apply due to restrictions on housing from their national headquarters.

Groups will be evaluated on the following components:

  • How well the program ideas connect to the Drury mission, your organization mission, and adhere to a required theme
  • The organization’s need for more visibility on campus
  • Individual record of the students applying to live in the house. Conduct records and GPAs will be reviewed as part of the selection process. Students with cumulative GPAs of 3.0 or higher will receive preference.
  • Junior, senior, and super seniors are preferred.
  • Residents who will live in the house for both semesters are preferred.
  • Individual references from your organization’s faculty/staff advisor will also be considered. Reference letters must be emailed by the faculty/staff advisor to housing@drury.edu or typed on Drury letterhead and delivered in sealed/signed envelope to Housing Office, FSC 120, by the application deadline.

Policies

  1. Applicants will be informed via Drury email of their application status on Friday, February 25, 2022.
  2. Specific houses may be requested; however, if your organization group is chosen, you are not guaranteed the house of your choice.
  3. Hard copy supplemental materials will not be returned to applicants.
  4. House residents must follow the Community Standards Handbook as individuals, and the Code of Student Organizations within the Community Standards Handbook. If any member chosen for a Student Organization house is individually found in violation of university policies in the spring/summer prior to the 2022-23 school year and/or during the 2022-23 school year, the resident (and possibly the student organization) may be relocated elsewhere in campus housing at the discretion of the Housing & Residence Life office.
  5. Selected individuals will be granted a house only for the 2022-23 academic year (summer of 2022 or 2023 may not be available). The organization belongings must be removed from the house along with the students’ personal belongings at the conclusion of the school year. Student organizations may reapply annually as long as the program is offered, but there is no guarantee groups will be approved for future years.

Recommendation letters must be emailed by the faculty/staff member to housing@drury.edu or typed on Drury letterhead and delivered in sealed/signed envelope to FSC 120, by the application deadline.


Please rank your group’s house preference, depending on the number of residents in your group.
