Residence Life

Students find meaningful community in their dorms, taking it from a place to sleep to a place to call home. OKWU offers five male residence halls and four female residence halls, each with thoughtfully appointed resident assistants to mentor you as you dive into college life.

OKWU is more than a college campus. Here, your tomorrow is better because of the friendships you make.

Spiritual Life

As a Christian university, we believe in the transforming grace of Jesus Christ and are passionate about spiritual growth. That’s why we facilitate various opportunities for you to grow in your faith, including twice-weekly chapel, student-led worship nights, prayer groups, and more.
