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 dimensions and images.

All rooms are wired for basic cable TV and internet access.

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 Standard co-axial cable cord for TV
Telephone 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:
