Where’s College Weekend?

College Weekend takes place on the beautiful campus of Oral Roberts University located in Tulsa, Oklahoma. Every College Weekend, we have students travel from all over the U.S. and across the world, and they absolutely fall in love with ORU’s campus and the city of Tulsa.

What does the cost include?

The registration fee is $60 per student. This includes the student's stay in the residence halls, all meals during College Weekend and an ORU t-shirt. All parents and sponsors in attendance are required to purchase a $25 Parent/Sponsor Pass, which covers all meals throughout the weekend. Specialized pricing is available for registered groups. To schedule a group, coordinate with our College Weekend Manager at 918.495.6165

If I am traveling from out of town, is there transportation to and from campus?

If you arrive by plane, airport shuttles to and from campus will be provided from Tulsa International Airport (TUL) Wednesday morning through Saturday evening. If you come by bus, we will pick you up at the Tulsa Greyhound bus terminal. We must receive your arrival and departure information one week prior to your arrival.
