The University of Oklahoma has numerous campus locations and a variety of events that attract minors, which may be sponsored by the University or by third parties. These guidelines are meant to serve as guidance for these valuable experiences. Please note, these guidelines may not encompass each and every encounter with a minor and should be flexible depending on the circumstances and with the approval of either a supervisor in charge of the area or facility or the Office of Risk Management, in consultation with the Office of Legal Counsel. The safety of minors on campus is of utmost importance to the University and these guidelines have been approved in order to provide a safe, fun and productive educational environment.

In order to provide the best campus experience for visitors, we limit the size of each tour group. Due to student tour guide schedules and daily individual tours, we are unable to provide the adaquate number of tour guides for groups larger than 40.
9-12 graders coming with a group are able to be a part of our group tour experience. For K-8 groups, a campus map, self-guided tour, and scavenger hunt are available for groups to explore on their own. A group is welcome to stop by the OU Visitor Center, Jacobson Hall, for additional information while they are on campus. The OU Visitor Center is open Monday - Friday, 8AM - 5PM.
