Cross Announcement

We have exciting news to share!

Pending the OU Board of Regents’ approval, the Cross complex will be available for housing for incoming fall 2021 freshmen, providing students with a first-class residential option. 

Located on the Norman campus at the corner of Jenkins Avenue and Fourth Street, Cross is a premier 1,200-bed complex featuring a range of amenities, including a 24-hour fitness facility and a black box theater. The community consists of four, four-story buildings that feature a mix of residential units, community spaces and commercial spaces.

The Cross complex features units with two and four bedrooms with full-size beds, large windows and desks. Each unit has a full-sized refrigerator, microwave and kitchenette. Bathrooms have tile floors and showers with a vanity outside of the bathroom. 

If approved by our Board of Regents, students will receive more information about how they can complete a housing contract and update their housing preferences within their OU Housing Portal. 

In the meantime, explore photos from where you could soon be calling your home away from home.
