OU Housing Policy

Certain students are required to live in University housing. All single freshmen students under 20 years of age must live in a University residence hall for the academic year except for those who have earned 24 or more hours of college credit in residence or have already lived in University residence halls for two academic semesters, specifically, the spring and fall semesters. CLEP, AP, or hours earned through concurrent enrollment or similar opportunities are not applicable. Exemption from this policy is by special permission only, granted in writing by the Vice President for Student Affairs, or his/her delegates(s). Requests for exemption to the Housing rule should be directed to Debbie Wells at (405) 325-1284.
