Housing Reapplication Process

Drury University > Housing & Residence Life > Housing Reapplication Process

Drury Housing Policy:

Drury University has a housing policy that requires most full-time day school students to live on campus. You will need a housing exemption on file if you do not plan on living on campus. Housing contracts are for the full academic semester unless you are student teaching, studying abroad, or graduating. If you not longer qualify for any of these conditions you will be expected to uphold your housing contract or file a housing exemption. Housing exemptions are due April 1, 2022 for returning students. There will be a $500 contract cancellation fee after April 1, 2022.

Housing Assignment Process:

Returning student assignments are based upon special application processes (theme/student organization communities), pin number (fraternities), or student classification (non-theme apartments/houses and upperclassman residence hall suites).

Full-time day school students are eligible to reside in on-campus apartments/houses and fraternity houses if they graduated from high school at least one full year prior to the anticipated move-in date. There is not a minimum credit hour requirement to apply for apartments or houses.

Residents of all housing locations may live together in the same room/suite regardless of their sex or gender.

When making residence hall, room and roommate assignments, the university does not discriminate based upon race, religion, sexual orientation, disability, nationality, or culture.

Students with medical accommodations for housing or those who are considering family housing must reach out to the Housing office on February 10, 2022 or sooner.

Process for Fraternity Houses:

All fraternity chapters require that members live in their house for a set number of semesters. Men must submit a housing contract in MyDrury by the advertised deadline and indicate their fraternity chapter. After residents submit their housing contract in MyDrury, each chapter will have a room sign-up meeting in February or March. The deadline to submit a housing contract to live in a fraternity house is 4 p.m. Friday, February 18, 2022.

Process for Theme/Student Organization Housing:
Students will have to apply for their specific theme or student organization houses by the advertised deadlines. Some of those communities require an individual application, while some have a group application or presentation.

Process for Non-Theme Housing Apartments & Houses: Returner Self-Assignment:
Students will have the opportunity to keep their room assignment for next year or participate in the room selection process. All students will need to fill out the Housing Intention Form to keep their assignment or participate in the Returner Self-Assignment process. See more information below about the process.
