Oklahoma State University–Tulsa, located in Tulsa, Oklahoma, USA, is the newest institution of the Oklahoma State University System. It was previously the University Center at Tulsa until it became OSU-Tulsa on January 1, 1999. OSU-Tulsa is unique in the fact that it is not recognized as its own entity, but rather an extension of the main Oklahoma State University campus in Stillwater, Oklahoma. OSU-Tulsa works in conjunction with the main OSU campus and Tulsa Community College to provide Freshman and Sophomore level courses, enabling students to complete a four-year undergraduate course of study. Howard Barnett, Jr. has served as President of OSU-Tulsa since 2009.

Academics[edit]

The Tulsa campus focuses on junior, senior and graduate level education, providing opportunities for individuals to complete bachelors, masters and doctoral degrees.

Campus[edit]

The campus is spread over 200 acres (0.81 km2), just north of downtown Tulsa, in the historic Greenwood neighborhood. Tulsa facilities include traditional classrooms, distance-learning classrooms, computer labs, and a convention area.

The Helmerich Advanced Technology Research Center (ATRC) is a recent campus addition. This 125,000-square-foot (11,600 m2) engineering building has specialized labs for developing advanced materials targeted to local aerospace, biotechnology, and telecommunications, and manufacturing industries.
