Housing

Drury is a residential university. Full-time day school students live on campus until they are a minimum of 21 at the start of an academic year, unless they meet specific criteria to be exempt from the housing policy.

Freshmen live in one of the three residence halls: Smith, Wallace, and Sunderland halls. Smith Hall and Wallace Hall are suite-style double-occupancy rooms, where four students share a bathroom. Sunderland Hall has suite-style single-occupancy rooms, with four students and two bathrooms in a suite. Freshmen in Sunderland Hall live in Living Learning Communities (LLCs). Each LLC is composed of 16-20 students interested in a common theme, interacting together and with faculty and staff through a shared class, CORE 101.

Upperclassmen may choose to live in university-owned apartments, houses, fraternity houses, or the Summit Park Leadership Community (an upperclassman LLC). A majority of campus apartments have 4 single-occupancy bedrooms and are fully furnished. There are a limited number of studios, 1-bedroom, 2-bedroom and 3-bedroom apartments, both furnished and unfurnished. Summit Park residents (usually sophomores) in groups of 4 or 8 form a year-long partnership with a local community agency and commit to 15 hours of community service a semester.

Amenities for the residence halls and fraternity houses include furnishings, mini-fridge/microwave, wireless and network Internet, expanded basic cable TV service, community laundry facilities for no additional charge, all utilities, including trash and co-mingled recycling.

All residents may attend Residence Life Association (RLA) events for no additional charge, as well as programs hosted by Resident Assistants or Community Assistants.

Study abroad

Drury's study abroad program is an integral part of the college experience. Almost half of the student body studies overseas at some point in short-term, semester, or year-long programs.<ref name="drury.edu"/> Foreign learning is a requirement for most students with majors in the schools of Business and Architecture.

Drury also maintains a satellite campus in Aigina, Greece that is home to several of the university's most distinctive courses. Though the Center is quite popular with architecture students, it is attended by students across disciplines and majors.<ref>{{#invoke:citation/CS1|citation |CitationClass=web }}</ref>
