Schedule Campus Visit

The safety of our guests, students, and campus community is of the utmost importance to our team. We hope you will respect and understand the changes we have made to our campus experiences with your safety in mind.

Our custodial staff and specialized contractors are working around the clock to disinfect campus buildings, and daily cleaning protocols have been enhanced in response to COVID-19. Read more about the Clean and Green initiative at ou.edu/cleanandgreen.

For more information about the University of Oklahoma’s updates and resources on the coronavirus, visit ou.edu/together.

Each OU campus has implemented and will enforce a policy mandating that masks be worn by employees, students, patients, and visitors (1) when they are inside University facilities and vehicles and (2) when they are outdoors on campus and social distancing of at least six feet is not possible. Masks must cover the individual’s nose and mouth, and bandanas, scarves, gaiters, or buffs are not acceptable. Each campus policy has been reviewed and approved by OU’s Chief COVID Officer and is effective until further notice.

Each visitor to campus, including prospective students and their one guest, will be required to complete the Visitor COVID-19 Screening within 24 hours of the campus tour. The screening form will be emailed to registrants 24 hours prior to the tour. Should any guests arrive on campus without completing the screening form, they will be required to complete it prior to the tour. If you do not complete the form or do not receive clearance, you will not be able to attend the campus tour.

Once you arrive on campus, a current student tour guide will take you on an hour and a half walking tour of campus. Comfy shoes are encouraged! Please also check the weather for Norman, Oklahoma ahead of your visit.

As a part of the policies we have enacted for this academic year in response to the ongoing pandemic, we have limited the amount of guests who are able to tour at a specific date and time. We are closely following these capacities in order to provide every guest the best and safest experience.

We will do our best to accommodate all guests, however, our campus tours may reach capacity. We encourage you to schedule your tour as soon possible to ensure you have a spot that fits your schedule.

Our campus tours will have a strict capacity limit and often fill a few weeks in advance. We will not be accepting walk-ins at this time. If you need assistance, please contact us at (405) 325-2151 or tour@ou.edu.

If there is no availability on the day that initially worked best for your schedule, we have a few alternative options for you to consider:

  • Schedule a tour for a date that is available! You can come another time to campus when we are able to best accommodate you to ensure you have the most quality experience. Register for an available OU campus tour here

  • Try a virtual guided tour! The same experience – with no travel and less walking! Our virtual guided campus tours are led LIVE by current OU student tour guides and only last about one hour. Register for a virtual student guided tour here.
  • Attend a virtual information session! Learn more about OU by connecting with OU Admissions staff members or by registering for a specific academic college virtual information session to get more in-depth information about your academic areas of interest. Register for a virtual information session here.
  • Still planning to be in Norman, OK? If you will still be on-campus on the day you would like to tour, you can stop by our Visitor’s Center between 8 AM – 5 PM, Monday-Friday to ask questions and receive OU information. You can also grab a campus map and self-guided tour handout to explore campus at your own pace! Even if you show up outside of office hours, you can grab these materials in a black box outside the front of the OU Visitor’s Center – Jacobson Hall.

Many of our academic colleges offer additional information sessions, which provide a more in-depth look at specific programs of interest. These are a great opportunity to tour major-specific facilities and meet staff and faculty members from your intended academic college. Academic programs are offering many virtual and on-campus options — click here to see available academic sessions

If you are unable to attend a scheduled campus tour, feel free to explore campus on your own. You can stop by the Visitor's Center to pick up a self-guided tour brochure, or view this one on your mobile device. 

Written with a general overview and historical points of interest, it allows you to enjoy our "campus beautiful by day and night" at your own pace and convenience.
