GRADUATE HOUSING AND TRANSPORTATION
Housing in the Norman area is very reasonably priced. For example, a one-bedroom apartment ranges from $500 to $1,000 per month, some with utilities included. There are many houses for rent also.
For information about university housing, you can contact the University Housing and Food Services web site through the link listed below. They offer several complexes and prices to select from. We recommend that graduate students live in an apartment rather than in a dormitory as dormitories are usually closed for the Christmas and New Year holiday period in December and part of the summer.
There are also numerous apartment complexes in Norman, with several new ones built recently. Several are within walking distance of campus. There are also houses for rent in Norman, some within walking distance. Many of these are not listed online but have “for rent” signs in their yards. Most are not furnished.
