What to Bring
Your new home!
Your residence hall room will be your unique space in which you should feel comfortable and at home. All rooms come furnished with bed(s), desks, desk chairs, chest of drawers, closet or wardrobe space, and one Microfridge. See Room Previews for specific images and room configurations.
All rooms include Cox cable TV and internet access (both wired and WiFi).
Just when you think you have brought everything you need, you will start to move in and unpack... only to discover that you have forgotten something! This is inevitable, but the University Store on LRC 3 sells many such items, and there are many stores in the Tulsa area that are easily accessible from ORU.
We recommend bringing the following items with you to help personalize your space:
|Twin extra long (80 inches) bed sheets||3M Command Adhesive strips for hanging pictures, posters, etc.|
|Comforter||Computer/laptop (see above link for dorm specifications)|
|Extra blankets||Power strip/extension cords|
|Alarm clock||Clip-on light/standing lamp (halogen Lamps are not permitted)|
|Iron||Vacuum Cleaner/Stick Vac|
|Ironing board||Stackable crates/storage drawers|
|Trash bags||Weather-appropriate gear/attire for cold, rainy, snowy seasons|
|Lock box||Shower shoes/shower basket|
Claudius and EMR Residents:
In addition to the items listed above, we also recommend that Claudius and EMR students bring a fan for their dorm room. Recent energy recovery ventilation improvements have been added to these resident halls to improve the overall air quality. The result is better air quality condition and a positive air environment. To preserve the positive air environment, windows remain shut in Claudius and EMR.
Claudius and EMR both have a two pipe water system for their HVAC. It takes a few hours to convert to AC from heat and vice versa. Because of the few hour conversion factor, a fan can be an added bonus on unseasonably warm days.
Please keep these housing policies in mind when planning for your room:
|Computer||Coffee maker without automatic shut-off|
|Hot pot (without exposed heating element)||Halogen lamp|
|Coffee maker with automatic shut-off||Space heater|
|Hot air popper||Personal refrigerator (all rooms come equipped w/ A Microfridge unit|
Policy on Outside Furniture
Additionally, students are not permitted to bring personal furniture to furnish their room with the exception of a desk chair. Personal sofas, love seats, futons, papasan chairs, slings, bean bag chairs, and other furniture items are not permitted in the residence halls. Additionally, all university supplied furniture MUST remain within the room during the course of the academic year. Missing items will be billed to the responsible student at current replacement cost .
|3M Command Adhesive||Tape adhesives|
|Magnets||Foam square adhesives/hooks|
|Magnetic white boards (for metal doors in Claudius/EMR)||Nails/wall anchors|
