Housing Options

Residence Halls

The majority of our freshmen and sophomores live in one of three residence halls: Smith, Sunderland, and Wallace.  The halls are staffed by a professional live-in Hall Director or Graduate Assistant and a number of Resident Assistants (RAs).  RAs are undergraduate students who organize group events such as holiday decorating contests, Super Bowl Parties, and other community-building activities.  Hall program attendance and participation in impromptu pizza parties, late-night chats, and study sessions can lead to strong friendships.  When you live in a residence hall, it's easy to find someone who will see a local band, check out an art gallery, or volunteer alongside you!  RAs can also provide assistance with transitional struggles, roommate issues, and academic concerns.

Apartment-Style Housing

Drury's apartment-style housing combines the ultimate in privacy with community living in Springfield's historic Midtown area. Apartments and houses offer students an independent living environment with many of the services, conveniences, and security of residence hall living. All units are within walking distance of the academic buildings.  All campus housing includes mini-blinds, access to laundry facilities, internet, and utilities, just like the residence halls.

Please note that full-time undergraduate students are eligible for apartment-style housing if they graduated from high school at least one full year prior to the anticipated move-in date.

Returning students select their own roommates, and then apartments are offered to groupings based on combined credits hours, unless there is a special application process noted. Roommate groups may be gender-inclusive or same-gender. It is typical for students with limited credit hours to live in the residence halls. 

Fraternity Houses

Greek chapters at Drury have a rich tradition, distinctive history, and unique ideals. Some of the things that make fraternity life so great are the diverse members in each of the chapters, the leadership opportunities available and the positive social events that chapters sponsor. The houses are for full-time day school fraternity members who graduated from high school at least one full year prior to their anticipated move-in date.
