Students living on campus will receive a written notice of room assignment and move-in details from the housing office approximately 3 to 4 weeks before arrival. Students attending New Student Orientation may check into their room on Sunday at the beginning of orientation week. Undergraduate and Pathway students who do not attend orientation may check into their room on Saturday before classes begin. Intensive English Program students may check into their room the day before scheduled tests or contact the Intensive English program directly at to make other arrangements.

We strongly recommend that students arrive at the TU campus on a designated housing check-in date or during regular business hours Monday through Friday, 8:00 a.m. CST to 5:00 p.m. CST, for best assistance from the university. Students who arrive before their approved check-in date should plan to stay in a hotel until their room assignment is available. If you have questions about arrival please contact the International Student Services Office in advance at or +1-918-631-2329. If you are on campus and need assistance when university offices are closed, campus security can be reached +1-918-631-5555.
