Temporary Housing Offered by OBU

OBU is offering transitional housing in Agee Residence Center for those who have lost or sustained damage to their homes. Up to 350 beds are available through May 29 when the rooms will need to be vacated for previously contracted summer camps.

OBU President David W. Whitlock (center) discusses temporary housing and feeding options with members of the Southern Baptist Convention Disaster Relief of Oklahoma. The group is directed by Sam Porter (left), state director of Southern Baptist Disaster Relief.

To arrange housing, contact Michael Burns, OBU director of residential life, at 405-308-7336 or come to the front desk inside the south door of Agee Residence Center and ask for Burns or Jeremy Fisher, director of Agee Residence Center.

Food is being provided by the Oklahoma Baptist Disaster Relief team at the Expo Center from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m. and 4:30 to 6 p.m.

OBU prohibits alcohol, tobacco, drugs and weapons on campus. The university does not have accommodations for pets.
