Room Previews

 

Oral Roberts University is a residential campus. All freshmen are required to live on campus.  All other undergraduate students under the age of 23 (must turn age 23 by August 1st preceding the Fall semester), not married OR not living with their parents/legal guardian are required to live in the residence halls.

Each floor/wing houses approximately 30 students. This structure is designed to maximize your college experience. Each wing on campus has a male/female counterpart called the brother or sister wing.

Each wing has a resident advisor (RA). The RA serves as the leader of the wing and will assist you in settling into the flow of things at ORU. The RA conducts a weekly hall meeting. Each wing also has a chaplain to serve students' spiritual needs and most floors have an alumni or community sponsor called a wing backer.

Bunking Beds

Bunking and unbunking beds is a service ORU can provide.  Due to the wear and tear on the furniture and the time limitations the process presents, all requests for bunking or unbunking beds must be submitted by 4:00PM August 23rd.

Students who submit a bunking/unbunking request must agree to the following. Both residents in a double room must agree and consent to these conditions and the subsequent labor charges:

1) Beds for a particular room will only be bunked/unbunked once for the occupants that appear on this form in any given academic year

2) Residents who appear on this form agree to have the non-refundable amount of $15 each applied to their student accounts at the time the request is submitted

3) Residents are not permitted to bunk or unbunk their own beds. Students found to be in violation of this policy will be fined the amount of $100.

 
LAUNDRY VIEW

New for Fall 2017!   Good news...students will no longer have to carry quarters or make sure they have enough loaded on their Eagle Card as all laundry machines on campus will be free to residents and will include access to Laundry View, a state of the art app that lets you know when your wash is done or when a machine is available.
