Couch Restaurants

Couch Restaurants and its nearby towers were part of the expansion and modernization of the university's residence halls in 1967. The complex is named for one of OU's most beloved citizens, Glenn C. Couch, a former botany professor who became dean of University College. The restaurant can seat 750 patrons at one time.

Originally a single large dining area, tremendous renovations began on Couch Restaurants in fall 2008 with a Grand Opening Ceremony in fall 2009. OU faculty, staff, guests and students truly enjoy the ultimate community dining experience. Review the 2009 Couch Restaurants virtual tour!

Couch Restaurants is the place to grab dinner with friends, study over lunch with free wi-fi connectivity or interact with new student groups while watching the cinema-style projection screen.  Sizzle, Home and View are the established dining rooms within Couch Restaurants,  featuring 14 unique all-you-care-to-eat restaurant themes.  Enjoy customized stir-fry dishes, gourmet hamburgers, bold vegan and vegetarian dishes, traditional Mediterranean food, and more (including one of the only all-you-care-to-eat Chick-fil-As in the country!)

From traditional Greek gyros to pulled-pork sandwiches and freshly made queso and salsa, you will find an array of delectable options in Couch Restaurants, all for one great price.
