If you have not visited The University of Tulsa campus recently, you will be amazed at the transformation of your alma mater. Not only has the academic quality of The University of Tulsa made significant strides, ranking among the Top 100 universities according to U.S. News and World Report, the footprint of campus has made significant changes over the past ten years. We encourage all alumni and friends to visit TU to revisit past memories and see where the University has advanced.
During the past decade, the University has made a commitment to developing a vibrant residential campus environment, which includes the addition of more than 800 market-quality apartments since 2001. The university constructed the University Square Apartments in the northwest section of campus in 2001, and then added three apartment communities – Brown Village, Lorton Village, and Mayo Village – along the southern and eastern sections of campus in 2007.
The campus has continued its dramatic physical transformation during the past few years as TU completed a number of major construction projects including Bayless Plaza, home of TU’s tradition-rich Kendall Bell; Collins Hall, home to the admission, financial aid, alumni relations, and central administration offices; the Case Athletic Complex, which houses the Golden Hurricane football offices and provides academic study resources for all TU student athletes; a complete renovation of H.A. Chapman Stadium to enhance the football game day experience; a new south entrance along Eleventh Street that provides a grand front door to the university that includes Tucker Drive, Chapman Commons, and the Genave King Rogers Fountain; and a 12,000-square foot, two story addition to McFarlin Library.
The most recently completed project on campus is the Roxana Rozsa and Robert Eugene Lorton Performance Center, a 77,000-square-foot facility showcasing TU’s fine and performing arts. The centerpiece of the Lorton Performance Center is the grand concert hall with a full performance stage. The facility is home to the School of Music and the Film Studies Department.
