Campus Safety:

From a recent survey, students remarked that they overwhelmingly felt safe both in the residence halls, and across campus. Our police division patrols the parking lots and exterior grounds throughout the night and early morning hours. Residential floors are locked 24-hrs a day, seven days a week. Ground floor doors lock at 10 p.m, Sunday through Thursday, and at midnight on Friday and Saturday. All residents may access the ground floors of the towers with their student ID cards in order to use the computer labs and food services operations. For students who are studying or working on campus late at night, OU offers a program called Safewalk, where volunteers escort students to their campus destination. Outdoor emergency telephones are also located throughout the academic and housing areas. For more safety information, visit the OU Police Department website.

Athletic Tickets:

With 26 national championships and 240 conference championships, OU’s athletic programs have a winning tradition. All sports events (with the exception of men’s football and basketball) are free with an OU ID to our students. For more information, visit SoonerSports.com.
