Some of my friends stayed in Colombia for college, but I wanted to get outside my comfort zone. At TU, I've made friends from all over the world. People in Tulsa are also very friendly and open.

Why choose The University of Tulsa?

A close-knit community

To TU students, the University’s relatively small size is one of its great advantages. Two-thirds of all undergraduate classes have fewer than 20 students. Faculty members are not only professors, but also become trusted advisors and research mentors. Since all undergraduate students live on campus for at least 2 years, it’s easy to make new friends and participate in clubs and activities.

Engaging campus life

With over 150 student organizations, including several that specially cater to international students, there are plenty of ways to be active at TU. Over 85% of students join on-campus recreational teams in more than 40 sports. It’s also a lot of fun to cheer on one of TU’s many Division I sports teams, especially since your student ID gives you free entrance to any games on campus!

Outstanding facilities

TU’s campus features state-of-the-art classrooms and laboratories for building real-world skills. The Risk Management Center offers professional-level financial technology, including electronic stock tickers, Bloomberg terminals and extensive financial databases. You will also find the Lorton Performance Center, a huge arts complex with rehearsal studios, practice rooms, and post-production labs for film scoring and editing. Engineering students have access to cutting-edge facilities on TU’s North Campus, and several global energy companies work with TU faculty and students on innovative research projects.

Excellent location

Tulsa, Oklahoma boasts the benefits of a big city combined with the charm of a small town. There’s plenty to see and do, including museums, concert halls, boutique shops and lots of delicious local and international foods. The city also has over 135 parks and 50 miles of scenic trails for biking and running. Tulsa’s warm southern climate allows you to enjoy these outdoor activities all year round.
