Campus Services, Activities and Events

University Events

Applications for large events on campus are no longer required. The Large Events Task Force has provided the following guidelines for event planning:

  • Any gathering of more than 50 attendees is considered a large event.
  • All individuals planning to attend such events must fill out the university's Daily Health Screening Form for contact tracing purposes.
  • Masking and social distancing requirements¬†for large events are the same as for campus operations and activities in general.
  • Catering at events is under the event owner's discretion. When applicable, pre-packaged grab-and-go food options provide the safest dining experience. If buffets are used, guests must wear masks while in line and while not actively eating at a table.
  • If an event is held on property owned or governed by OU, even if hosted by an outside entity, masks must be worn while indoors, regardless of affiliation with the university. Those hosting events on OU property should not ask attendees about their vaccination status.
Campus Meetings and Activities
  • Meetings and other activities in university facilities can be held in-person, virtually or in a hybrid format. Meeting plans should incorporate options for unvaccinated individuals to practice established infection prevention protocols, including social distancing where possible.
  • Clubs and student organization activities are subject to the same COVID-19 guidelines as those in place for all university activities.
Campus Cleaning and Climate Control

Information about campus cleaning plans made in response to the COVID-19 Pandemic is available on the COVID-19 Vaccines and Illness Prevention webpage.
