Frequently Asked Questions
- Do you offer weekend tours?
We are not able to offer weekend tours because our office holds many events and programs for graduate students on weekends.
- Will my tour take place if the weather is bad?
We will be in close contact with you leading up to the tour in order to hopefully avoid cancelling a tour the day it is scheduled due to weather. If it is raining but there is no lightning, the tour will take place unless you choose to cancel. Tours will take place in cold temperatures as well.
- How long will my tour last?
We try to limit tours to a maximum of 60 minutes.
- What should I expect from my tour?
You can expect a tour of the main part of campus, information on the best things to do in the area, a current graduate student’s perspective from your tour guide, and answers to questions you may have. We tailor our tours to each visitor, so if there is something you really want to see on campus, let us know beforehand and we will try to make it happen!
- Where should I park?
The tour will begin in the Graduate Student Life Center, Robertson Hall, third floor, room 304. The street address for Robertson Hall is 731 Elm Ave, Norman, OK 73019. There is a staff parking lot just south of our building that you will be able to access. Simply press the button on the speaker by the gate when you drive up, tell them you are here for a graduate student tour, and they will lift the gate to let you in. We will have a visitor pass for you to put in your car once we meet you in the Graduate Student Life Center.
- Can I bring friends and/or family?
You are more than welcome to bring friends and family. We enjoy meeting the people who help support our students as they earn advanced degrees at OU.
- Can you set up meetings in my academic unit for me?
We do not set up meetings in for you; however, we can provide you the contact information you need to set up a meeting on your own. We would be more than happy to drop you off at the meeting location (on campus) at the conclusion of your tour.
- Do you have accommodations available for those who may need them?
Yes! Our building has an automatic door and an elevator accessible from the north entry under the Graduate Student Life awning. We also have a golf cart available for those who do not wish to walk the tour.
If you have any questions, contact us at 405-325-2139 or 731 Elm Ave., Room 304, Norman, OK 73019.
