At this time, masking will no longer be required on campus or at campus events. The university strongly recommends masking for all unvaccinated individuals and guests 2-11 years of age when inside OU's academic, athletic, housing, and administrative facilities. Please review the University's masking policy. We appreciate your understanding as we continue to prioritize the health and safety of our staff, students, and visitors, and we certainly hope to see you on campus soon.

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.

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.
Masking on Campus
Taking into consideration the CDC’s recent guidance on masking, recent state law changes, and Oklahoma’s record low case counts of COVID-19, OU is lifting its mask requirement for all three campuses, with limited exceptions. The university strongly recommends masking for all unvaccinated individuals when inside OU's academic, athletic, housing, and administrative facilities.
