Campus Life

The College of Dentistry is strategically situated in the heart of a vibrant, attractive, and well-appointed Health Sciences campus environment. Dental students have convenient extended-hours access to both the Robert M. Bird Library, with its vast study areas and media resources and the new David L. Boren Student Union, with its facilities for fitness, student services, dining and leisure. Adjacent to the College is the Basic Sciences Education Building which houses research, laboratory and classrooms space. Two blocks away are the newly constructed Village Apartments for students who want to live on campus.

Our home is Oklahoma City, which offers a rare combination of small town charm and big city energy and amenities. Our campus is just a few minutes from the city center and nearby Bricktown, an early-day warehouse area recently transformed into the fastest growing entertainment district in the Southwest. And next door is the Chesapeake Energy Arena, home of the NBA Oklahoma City Thunder, live concerts and world-class events.
