Parent Portal

Welcome parents and families to Housing and Residential Life! There is great importance in a positive relationship between student and family, and we hope that these resources will help you in that journey. Please browse the website and familiarize yourself with all our Department has to offer.
As always, please feel free to contact any member of the Housing and Residential Life staff if you have questions or concerns.

How to apply?

The application process can begin at least a year before your student actually moves to campus. We encourage you to take a campus tour, and become familiar with the housing options and which will work best for your student. Applications for the next academic year will be accepted beginning October 1 of the previous year. The process is all on-line, and takes just a few minutes to complete.
Your student will actually get to choose his or her room and building the spring/summer before the fall semester.

Policies and Procedures


OSU takes your student's safety very seriously, and provides security phones across campus, hall member(s) on duty in each hall 24 hours a day, and one of the fastest response times of any police department.

Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act (FERPA)

The essence of the Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act (FERPA) is to give a student the right to inspect his or her education records and to protect the privacy of these records.

Parental Notification Policy

Oklahoma State University enacted a new policy at the beginning of the fall 2002 semester, which permits selected University Administrators to notify the parents of students who are under 21 and found responsible for violating the University's Alcohol and Drug Policies.
