3 College Junior

Campus Housing: It does the job that you need it to, but isn't worth the money you're having to pay for it. Caludius and EMR are definitely the social dorms, but are incredibly crammed and run-down. Towers are a nice alternative, but don't expect to build as many relationships with the people around you over there. It's a nice quiet place to move when you are established socially and need a quieter space because of your class load.

Campus Housing: Depending on the dorm you choose, you will either get a fairly average sized dorm room or a larger one. Both sizes are nice and clean and provide adequate space for your things. The best options are the "Towers" dorms as they are the most spacious. The atmosphere in all the dorms is fun and relaxed, although it can be quite noisy. The cost is the only downside. The dorms are incredibly pricey and the housing process can be kind of tricky.

College Sophomore

Campus Housing: I live off campus so I don't have a realistic ideas about campus housing.

Campus Housing: The dorm that I lived in was the cheapest. It wasn't nasty it was just extremely small. And the walls are thin enough that you can here two doors down. If the girls were up laughing and screaming you weren't sleeping unless you had headphones. I slept with headphones in my ears every single night. The bathrooms were four showers with curtains and two toilets and my floor had a handicap bathroom. We were surprisingly never in each others way. The women came and cleaned enough that it was never dirty.

Campus Housing: It's great living on campus. There is a very welcoming "fit in" atmosphere. It be nice to have complaints and requests answered faster. And the public restrooms in Gabrielle Christian Salem Hall are quite dirty.

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).
