4 College Freshman

Campus Housing: the community of each floor is awesome, and while the proximity to most classes isn't super close, it's great for excercise.

5 College Freshman

Campus Housing: There are good choices for dorms on campus. We have a more spacious and quiet dormitory for more expensive and a less spacious and more involved dormitory for less expenses. The social atmosphere in the dorms are great! I feel as if our section in the dorm is a brotherhood. The dorms are not conveniently spaced close to the school buildings because the founder wanted us to get some exercise and discipline our selves with patience on the way to class. He believed in developing our spirit, mind, and body.

Campus Housing: All are card-access only along with other security measures

Most Chill (Women's): Gabby

$$ - $$$

Furthest from "core" class room buildings, one of the closest to parking, closest to theater, dance, and music areas. Downstairs kitchen, small workout room, very chill/quiet non-traditional students w/ private rooms on first floor. Small/medium sized common room, can bring (appropriate) video games or movies to play on TV with friends. Individual or private rooms with private bathrooms or large closets

Most Social/Loud/Young (Women's): Claudius

$$

Closest to cafeteria, close to Hammer center (very bright, modern building that includes games, sometimes events, entertainment, study area, late night food/coffee) and prayer gardens, has small chapel on first floor. Large windows, frequently hear about noise issues late at night. Fairly small entry/common area.

Craziest/Youngest (Men's): EMR

$$

Also closest to cafeteria, close to parking and music building. Large windows. Is no longer is allowed a kitchen. Random items occasionally found in trees outside building - funny, crazy, or awful stories frequently come out of here.

Towers (Men's / Women's)

$$ - $$$

(Don't know much about these)

Has common room area to hang out, closest to greenhouse, some are closer to parking, some are closer to baseball stadium/AC. Not far from cafeteria. Heard one of the men's towers is known as the "chill" men's dorm on campus

Campus Housing: Aside from the room stacking in the main buildings (ie. its easier to get a room with a roommate than an unused room, even if the floor has multiple rooms unused on a floor.) the rooms are nice for the most part. Furniture can be a bit of a pain due to the odd shape of the room. The ethernet is an excellent plus however and is consistently good. (the wifi comes and goes depending on the ). The sliding doors in the wesley dorms to the balcony would be really nice to use, except people kept falling off of them, so they were bolted shut. Plenty of power outlets.

My only complaint about the rules is that no candles/open flames/burning things, as the buildings are older.

Campus Housing: We really need to update the housing here instead of building new buildings.

Student Author OverviewWhat's this?

View student contributors

All students are required to live on campus, unless they are older than 25, married, or live with their parents in Tulsa. ORU has seven dormitories on campus. There are four "Towers," which includes two male dorms and two female dorms—Michael Cardone, Wesley Luehring, Frances Cardone, and Susie Vinson, respectively. The other male dorm on campus is Ellis Melvin Roberts (EMR), and its sister dorm is Claudius Roberts ( “Claudius”). The newest dorm on campus is Gabrielle Christian Salem, simply know as "Gabby" by the students. It offers single rooms and doubles with private bathrooms, and an ID is required to enter individual rooms. The rooms in Gabby cost more than the other dorm rooms, and this hall is only available to women. There are three girls to every two guys at ORU, so the girls’ dorms are a little more crowded.

The Towers have a reputation for housing students who are more studious and serious about classes. The rooms in the Towers are nearly twice as big as the rooms in EMR or Claudius. However, EMR and Claudius have a reputation for being much more social and fun. Even deeper than the overall reputations of certain dorms is the tradition and personality of individual floors. Some floors are known to be more athletic, while others are known to be very successful and academic. There are also the floors that just like to party (honor code appropriate parties, of course).
