University of Oklahoma Observatory (IAU code H30) is an astronomical observatory. It is located in Norman, Oklahoma, on the campus of the University of Oklahoma. Built in 1939, with a 10 inch Newtonian reflector and a smaller 3.5 inch telescope, it was housed in a 16-foot dome atop what was at the time, the southernmost building on campus. In 1995 the original 10 inch telescope was replaced by a .4 metres (16 inches) Meade SCT.
